Parents too poor to provide skirt for daughter, hollow out oak tree for petticoat; die, leaving cat and dog for son and daughter. Heroine takes the cat. [Story proceeds like No. 11.]


(1) Man and woman have son and daughter. They are too poor to get a skirt for daughter, and at last hollow out an oak-tree log as a petticoat for her. Parents die, leaving only a cat and a dog for the children. Boy takes the dog; girl takes the cat.

[Story proceeds like No. 11, "Kari Traestak".]
