Caps for Sale
"Fifty cents a cap!” calls out the Peddler as he walks carefully up and down the streets, balancing a huge pile of caps on top of his head.
But when the Peddler goes out into the country, he unwisely takes a nap, leaning against a tree, with the caps still balanced on his head. While he is asleep, a band of mischievous monkeys steals every one of his caps, except for his own checked cap.
When he wakes up, his efforts to get his caps back again make this a classic story in the great folktale tradition.
