1. THE FROG KING
A hundred years ago there lived a king. He had
some beautiful daughters, but the youngest
daughter was the most beautiful. Close by the
king’s castle, there was a great dark forest. And
under an old lime tree in the forest, there was a
well. When the day was warm, the king’s
youngest daughter usually went out into the
forest. When she was bored, she took her golden
ball and played with it.
But, do you think the princess kept her promise? What would happen
next? Now, continue the story. You can say whatever you want. You
can decide a sad or happy ending.
One day, the princess played with her
golden ball. Unfortunately…the ball rolled
into the well. She began to cry. Suddenly,
there was a frog who was willing to help
her. However, the frog asked the princess
to bring him to the palace and to let him
stay close to her. The princess agreed with
his request. So the frog jumped into the
well and took the golden ball out of it.
