upon a time there lived a little old man and a little old woman in
a little old house in the woods.
One morning when the little old woman was making pancakes, she chuckled
to herself and said, "I'll make my little old man a pancake child."
She made the shape of the fine pancake child. She used raisins for
the eyes and wide smiling mouth, and down the front of the jacket,
she put a row of currant buttons.
She put the pancake in the pan. When she peeked under the lid, the
pancake child hopped right out of the pan, skipped through the kitchen
door, and rolled down the path to the woods.
The little old woman ran after the child, calling, "Come back, Come
back!" But the pancake child only laughed and cried out, "Run, run,
no big deal. You can't catch me. I spin like a wheel" He was right.
The little old woman could not catch him.
