Each pair of pages presents one full page of text and one of colored illustration. The woodcutter here is perhaps a beaver, but he still uses an axe. A water sprite makes the usual triple retrieval. After selling the two precious axes, the woodcutter can give his wife and two children all the things they have dreamed of. There is no second phase in this telling; that is, no envious comrade tries to outwit the water sprite. A page at the end stops to reflect on honesty in the light of the story.
