The Fisherman & His Wife
A fisherman finds a magic fish. The fisherman's wife wants a cottage. The fisherman asks the fish and they have it. A week later she wants a house. A week later she wants a palace and she wants to be Queen. The fisherman's wife cannot be happy. She wants to be Emperor of the entire world.
There was once a fisherman and his wife who lived together in a little hut close to the sea, and the fisherman used to go down every day to fish; and he would fish and fish. So he used to sit with his rod and gaze into the shining water; and he would gaze and gaze. Now, once the line was pulled deep under the water, and when he hauled it up he hauled a large flounder with it. The flounder said to him, 'Listen, fisherman. I pray you to let me go; I am not a real flounder, I am an enchanted Prince. What good will it do you if you kill me--I shall not taste nice?
Talk about a special fish--this one can grant wishes!

I am quite ready to put back a flounder that can talk. Then the fisherman got up and went back to his wife in the hovel. You might at least have wished for a nice clean cottage. Go back and call him; tell him I want a pretty cottage; he will surely give us that! Be off now! The man was still not very willing to go, but he did not want to annoy his wife, and at last he went back to the sea.
