children. They wished for a little boy very much. One day the little old wife said

to the little old man: “I shall make me a Johnny Cake.”

She cut out a cookie in the shape

of a boy.
She made him as big as the pan!
She gave him a cap.
She gave him a coat.
She gave him two funny shoes.
Two black currants made his

eyes. He was a funny little man. Ha! Ha! Soon he was baked and out of the pan. “How lovely!” said the little old wife. “We shall eat him for supper.” Thump! What was that? Johnny Cake had jumped down. He ran out of the house.

How fast he ran !

The little old wife ran after him. “Johnny Cake! Johnny Cake! Stop!”

But Johnny Cake did not stop. “I shall run away from you. Ha! Ha! The little old man ran after him, too. He ran on till he came to a cow. . “Johnny Cake! Stop!” cried the cow. But Johnny Cake did not stop. “I have run away from the little old wife, The little old man. I shall run away from you! Ha! Ha!' Then the cow ran after him, too. Soon he came to some men. "Johnny Cake! Stop!” cried the men. But Johnny Cake did not stop.
