    What son of perdition has taught you these capers and put these words into your mouth? But no sooner did she open her lips than toads dropped on the ground; and when the King looked at her more closely he saw, that as Stories from Pentamerone book breathed hard from the fatigue of the journey, she made a lather at her mouth, which looked just like a washtub; then looking down on the ground, he saw a meadow of stinking plants, the sight of which made him quite ill. Wearied with flying so far, they stopped to rest upon the horn of a dead ox; and no sooner had they alighted than they were changed into handsome youths as they were at first.

Sinopsis It is an old saying, that he who seeks what he should not, finds what he would not. Then sending for Luceta, he gave her and Ciommo enough to live upon like princes; whilst Puccia, driven out of the kingdom, wandered about as a beggar; and, as the reward of her not having sown a little bit of cake, she had now to suffer a constant want of bread; for it is the will of Heaven that-- "He who shows no pity finds none. But no sooner did the lady hear this music than she gave orders for the dove to be instantly caught and made into a hash.
