There was once a man who had three sons, the youngest of whom was called the Simpleton. He was laughed at and despised and neglected on all occasions. Now it happened one day that the eldest son wanted to go into the forest, to hew wood, and his Mother gave him a beautiful cake and a bottle of wine to take with him, so that he might not suffer from hunger or thirst. When he came to the wood he met a little old grey man, who, bidding him good-day, said: "Give me a small piece of the cake in your wallet, and let me drink a mouthful of your wine; I am so hungry and thirsty." But the clever son answered: "If I were to give you my cake and wine, I should have none for myself, so be off with you," and he left the little man standing there, and walked away. Hardly had he begun to hew down a tree, when his axe slipped and cut his arm, so that he had to go home at once and have the wound bound up. This was the work of the little grey man.

An orphan encounters greed, deception, and murder when she goes to live with a new family Despite her name, Princess O’Shea is not a spoiled brat. When her father’s death leaves her an orphan, she goes to live with her old uncle, Slater, and is horrified by what she finds. She knew the O’Sheas were a family of scoundrels, but Slater and his awful brood are the laziest bunch of nitwits she has ever met. From her moronic cousin Twig to the daffy Peet, every one of Princess’s new relations is driven by greed, lust, and a desperate fear of work. The only thing holding them together is the promise of their father’s fortune—and Uncle Slater is not long for this world. When Princess finds Slater lying facedown on his bedroom floor, she assumes he’s sleeping off a bender. In fact, he will never wake again. His bourbon was poisoned, and if Princess isn’t careful, she’ll be the next O’Shea to die.

Excerpt from The Golden Goose Thereupon the second son went into the wood, and the Mother gave him, as she had given to the eldest, a sweet cake and a bottle of wine. The little old man met him also, and begged for a small slice of cake and a drink of wine. But the second son spoke out quite plainly. What I give to you I lose myself - be off with you, and he left the little man standing there, and walked on. Punishment was not long in coming to him, for he hadgiven but two strokes at a tree when he cut his leg so badly that he had to be carried home.
