Three children found a house in the woods and a woman came out from the door.

Soon it began to get dark and they noticed a light shining from the window of a house. Now the boldest and youngest of the three children was named Molly Whuppie, and she marched up to the door of that house and knocked as loudly as she could. When the door opened, a woman said to the children, "What do you want?" "Something to eat," they said in unison. "Eat?" said the woman. "My husband is a giant and he would gobble you up if he ever saw you." But the children were so cold and tired and hungry that they begged and pleaded with her until she let them in, sat them down by the fire and gave them each a bowl of broth.
