Once upon a time there were two men who slept in a wood, and during the night a little man in a red jacket appeared, and gave money to them to buy apples, and sell them to the King's daughter.
They went and sold them to her and when she ate one of them, her nose grew out of the window, and across the mountains. Her father did not know what to do, and he sent for the man again, and the man her an orange to eat and her nose grew slowly back.
