The next Thursday evening came the white bear to fetch her. She got on his back with her bundle, and off they went. After they had gone a good way, the white bear said, "Are you afraid?"No, she wasn't. "Just hold tight to my shaggy coat, and there's nothing to be afraid of," said the bear. P.J.

So one Sunday the white bear came and said they could now set off to see her father and mother. Off they went, she sitting on his back; and they went far and long. At last they came to a grand house. Her bothers and sisters were outside running about and playing. Everything was so pretty, it was a joy to see. Jackie Morris, East of the Sun, West of the Moon
