In fact, that's exactly what she threatened to do to Uncle Pierre, and if it wasn't for his friend Bashir, along with his magic fish and translating mouse, she would have succeeded!
Elsewhere in this collection a giant loses his socks, a doll looks into the future and a potato falls in love with a sultan. In these tales, clever young people find nifty ways to overcome wicked witches, outwit their parents and save their friends. And there's a big dash of magic to help them on the way!
