The Cakes


Two children have received a big cake and a small one, telling them:


The two children were a little girl of six and a boy of four years.

Hey!” said the little girl, “take this pretty cake. I will eat this big ugly one.

I like best the big ugly one,” said the little boy.

But it it is ugly!

Yes, but it’s big!
