Once upon a time in Sweden on a farm there lived two young sisters named Anna and Sybilla. They were identical twins. Anna and Sybilla were jealous of each other and they bickered about anything and everything.
Sybilla said, “You are taking too much time in the mirror!”
Anna said, “I wanted to wear a green dress today!”
Sybilla said, “You took the bowl of porridge that I wanted!”
Anna said, “You only like Staffan because he likes me!”
Underneath the floorboards of their farmhouse lived the Elf named Torgny. Torgny was the impish protector of the farmer’s land, wife, and children. The bickering of Anna and Sybilla was unsettling to Torgny.
Sybilla said, “Stop playing your accordion; I am reading!”
Anna retorted, “Of course, you must keep reading; Teacher says I read so much better.”
