The Pretty Little Cottage

Ещё один перевод русской народной сказки из детской книжки, которая чудесным образом попала мне в руки в 2000 году, «Теремок» под редакцией Н.Ц. Степанян, корректор Н.Д. Бучарова.

A pretty little cottage stood in the field. A mouse ran past, stopped and said: «What a pretty little cottage! Does anybody live here?» There was no answer. So the mouse settled to live in the cottage.

Then a frog hopped along, stopped and said: »What a pretty little cottage! Does annybody live here?» »I do, Mouse the Squeak. And who are you?» «I am Frog the Croak.» So they settled to live in the cottage, two of them together.

Then a hare scampered past, he stopped and said: «What a pretty little cottage! Does annybody live here?»
«I do, Mouse the Squeak. And I do, Frog the Croak. And who are you?» «I am Hare Easily Scared.» So they settled to live in the cottage, three of them together.

Then a fox trotted along, stopped and said: «What a pretty little cottage! Does annybody live here?»
«I do, Mouse the Squeak. And I do, Frog the Croak. And I do, Hare Easily Scared. And who are you?» «I am Fox the Chatterbox.» So they settled to live in the cottage, four of them together.

One day a wolf loped past, stopped and said: «What a pretty little cottage! Does annybody live here?»
«I do, Mouse the Squeak. And I do, Frog the Croak. And I do, Hare Easily Scared. I do, Fox the Chatterbox. And who are you?» «I am Wolf the Hungry Mouth.» So they settled to live in the cottage, five of them together.

And then a bear lumbered up, stopped and said: «What a pretty little cottage! Does annybody live here?»
«I do, Mouse the Squeak. And I do, Frog the Croak. And I do, Hare Easily Scared. I do, Fox the Chatterbox. And I do, Wolf the Hungry Mouth. And who are you?» «I am Bear of Shaggy Hair.» «Come and live here with us.»

«The cottage is too small for me. I cannot get inside. So I’ll live on the roof.» He climbed on the roof of the cottage and crushed it to a pile of chips.
