සතුන්ගේ පුංචි ගෙදර
මෙම කතා එකතුවට ඇතුළත් වන්නේ සතුන් ගැන කියැවෙන රුසියානු ජනකතා කිහිපයකි. එහි සත්තු ප්රසන්න ලෙසත්, කුතුහලය දනවන අයුරින් හා කුඩා දරුවන් මෙන් හැසිරෙන නමුත් අවසානයේ සියල්ල සිත් බැඳ ගන්නා අයුරින් අවසන් කරති. තවද ඔවුහු මිනිසුන් මෙන් කතා කරති. සිතති. හැසිරෙති. මොවුන් අතර හොඳ මෙන්ම නරක අයද, නිර්භීත මෙන්ම බියසුළු අයද, නුවණැති මෙන්ම අනුවණ අයද සිටිති. මෙහි ඇති සිත්ගන්නා සුළු චිත්ර, අප මායාමය ලොවකට කැඳවාගෙන යයි.
