The Dinner Tree

When she got back to the elm tree, there was the little blue Puskin, hunting among the dry leaves on the ground for his golden key.

The old brown Puskin gave the key back to him, and also gave him a fine gold chain to hang it on, around his neck so he wouldn't lose it again.

Then she told him to tell the greedy Puskins the tree would not give food to just anybody. It was his special Dinner Tree because he had no mother or father to cook for him, but he could share a bit of food with others if he wanted to.
