The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales pdf free download. A certain king had a beautiful garden, and in the garden stood a tree which
bore golden apples. These apples were always counted, and about the time
when they began to grow ripe it was found that every night one of them was
gone. The king became very angry at this, and ordered the gardener to keep
watch all night under the tree. The gardener set his eldest son to watch; but
about twelve o’clock he fell asleep, and in the morning another of the apples
was missing. Then the second son was ordered to watch; and at midnight he
too fell asleep, and in the morning another apple was gone. Then the third son
offered to keep watch; but the gardener at first would not let him, for fear
some harm should come to him: however, at last he consented, and the young
man laid himself under the tree to watch. As the clock struck twelve he heard a
rustling noise in the air, and a bird came flying that was of pure gold; and as it
was snapping at one of the apples with its beak, the gardener’s son jumped up
and shot an arrow at it.
