In this 373rd issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale "THE ENCHANTED WREATH”.

ONCE upon a time, long, long ago and far, far away, a man and his wife and two girls lived near a forest; one girl was the daughter of the man, and the other the daughter of his wife; and the man’s daughter was good and beautiful, but the woman’s daughter was always cross and repulsive. However, her mother did not know that, but thought her the most bewitching maiden that ever was seen.
One day the man called to his daughter and bade her come with him into the forest to cut wood. They worked hard all day, but in spite of the chopping they were very cold, for it rained heavily, and when they returned home, they were wet through. Then, to his vexation, the man found that he had left his axe behind him, and he knew that if it lay all night in the mud it would become rusty and useless. So he said to his wife:
‘I have dropped my axe in the forest, bid your daughter go and fetch it, for mine has worked hard all day and is both wet and weary.’
But the wife answered:
‘If your daughter is wet already, it is all the more reason that she should go and get the axe. Besides, she is a great strong girl, and a little rain will not hurt her, while my daughter would be sure to catch a bad cold.’
And so the good daughter returned through the driving rain and sticky mud to the forest. She found the axe in the place he had left it, but to her surprise, three little doves were sitting on the handle, all of them looking very sad.
Why were the doves sitting on the handle looking sad? Did she show kindness and shelter them? If she did what happened next you ask…? Well many things happened, some strange, some silly and some serious. To find the answers to these questions, and others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!
