Description

In this delightful story first published in 1915, we meet a kind old woman to whom nothing in the world sounds more delicious than an apple dumpling. She sets out one day with a basket full of plums in search of some apples with which to make her supper. Along the way she meets a colorful assortment of people who make trades with the old woman to help fill their needs, and we learn that when you give selflessly to others, you often end up with what you most desire.
