Boris Threeson and Other Ukrainian Folk Tales Retold in English   The Tremendous Turnip   Dido planted a turnip in the garden.   It grew and it grew and it grew.   When the time came to pull it up, the turnip was huge.   Dido took hold of the stem.   He pulled on the stem, but the big turnip would not budge.   It was stuck fast.   “Baba!” he called. “Come and help me pull our turnip!”   Baba ran to help.   She wrapped her arms around Dido.   Baba pulled on Dido while Dido tugged on the turnip.   They pulled and they pulled, but the large turnip would not budge.   It was stuck fast.   Baba called to Mama, “Tanya, come and help us pull our turnip!”   Mama ran to hold Baba while Baba pulled Dido, and Dido pulled on the turnip with all of his might.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled, but still the great turnip did not move.   It was stuck fast.   “Hanya! Hanya!” called Mama to her daughter. “Come and help us pull our turnip!”   Hanya ran as fast as she could.   She held on to Mama, while Mama pulled Baba, Baba pulled Dido, and Dido tugged the turnip with all his might.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled, but still they could not move the turnip.   The enormous turnip was stuck fast.   “Vanya! Vanya!” called Hanya to her puppy. “Come and help us pull our turnip!”   “Woof, woof!” Vanya barked loudly.   He ran and grabbed Hanya by the dress with his teeth.   He pulled Hanya, while Hanya pulled Mama, Mama pulled Baba, Baba pulled Dido, and Dido pulled the turnip with all his might.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled, but still the immense turnip would not budge.   It was stuck fast.   Vanya called to Anya the kitten, “Come and help us pull our turnip!”   “Meow, meow!” mewed Anya.   She took Vanya by the tail with her paws and hung on tight.   Anya pulled Vanya, Vanya pulled Hanya, Hanya pulled Mama, Mama pulled Baba, Baba pulled Dido, while Dido tugged and tugged with all his might.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled, but even now the massive turnip would not move.   It was stuck fast.   Manya the mouse heard all the noise.   “Squeak, squeak!” she cried and ran from her hole.   She grasped Anya by the tail.   Manya pulled Anya, Anya pulled Vanya, Vanya pulled Hanya, Hanya pulled Mama, Mama pulled Baba, and they all pulled Dido, who huffed and puffed as he tugged and tugged with all his might.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled, but the gigantic turnip would not budge.   It was stuck just as fast as before.   Petanya the beetle came to see what was going on.   He took the tail of Manya in his claws.   Petanya pulled Manya, Manya pulled Anya, Anya pulled Vanya, Vanya pulled Hanya, Hanya pulled Mama, Mama pulled Baba, and they all pulled Dido, who tugged and tugged on the monstrous turnip.   They pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled and they pulled.   Suddenly, “Whoomp!”   They pulled that tremendous turnip right out of the ground!   The turnip landed on Dido; Dido fell on Baba, Baba fell on Mama, Mama fell on Hanya, Hanya fell on Vanya, Vanya fell on Anya, Anya fell on Manya, but Petanya ran away and nobody fell on him.   That night they had a tremendous turnip dinner and everyone went right to bed, including Petanya the beetle.   “How strong I am!” he thought, and he fell fast asleep.
