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!“
