The Star in the Apple




    Retold by Paula Willowmoon

Once upon a time a little boy named Johnny told his mother he had nothing to do. "How would you like to find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside?" asked his mother.

Johnny said he would like that very much. So Johnny and his mother went for a walk. They saw Johnny's friend, Jenny, jumping rope. "Do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside" asked Johnny?

"No." said Jenny. "But maybe Farmer Jones knows that."

Johnny and his mother walked until they came to Farmer Jones. Johnny asked him, "Do you know where I can find a lttle red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star inside?"

"No." said Farmer Jones. But I bet my Grandma knows. She has lived a long, long time, and she knows most everything."

They went to see Grandma Jones. She was rocking back and forth in a rocking chair on the front porch. Johnny asked her, "Grandma, Jones, do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows, no doors, a chimney on top, and a star in the middle?"

"Go into the orchard and ask Mr. Wind." said Grandma Jones.

So Johnny went into the orchard. Mr. Wind came and blew so hard, that an apple fell down onto Johnny's lap. "This is what we've been looking for!" shouted Johnny.

They cut it open, and inside was a star. Johnny and his mother walked home and showed Grandma Jones, Farmer Jones, and Jenny the apple. Then each of them ate a piece of the apple. The End

The apple stands for knowledge
