‘A long, long time ago, a woodcutter left his lunch in the forest by accident–it was a knotted hanky full of boiled carrot.
During the night, some little gnomes came out of the ground. They found the little bundle and tried the carrot. They liked it so much that they put a gold bar inside the hanky to say thank you.
After this, the woodcutter gave up his job and spent his days placing knotted hankies full of carrot all around the forest, in the hope of receiving more gold. People still bring bowls of boiled carrot into the woods, dreaming of becoming rich, but alas, they get nothing,' granny said, finishing off the story.
Lucy thought about the gnomes all evening, and the next day she asked her granny to make her boiled carrot for lunch. When she found the right moment, the girl hid some of the boiled carrot in a hanky and set off for the woods. She put the bundle on the ground beside a tall tree and stuck a note up beside it: “Darling gnomes, please help yourselves. I don't want any gold, I just want to look at you once.”
The next day, Lucy found a crystal stone underneath the tree, and a green sheet of paper with the words: ‘Thank you for the carrot. Look into this stone and you will see us.”
Holding her breath, Lucy raised the stone to her eyes and saw a rosy-cheeked old man in a green shirt down to his ankles, combing his beard in front of a silver mirror.
‘Hello, Lucy,' the old man said in a friendly voice.
‘Hello! Why do you have such a long shirt?' Lucy blurted out.
‘It's my night shirt. All night I gathered berries and now I'm going to bed.'
‘Please, speak to me some more,' Lucy begged.
‘Ok, today I feel better, thanks to your carrots. You can see how rosy my cheeks are. We gnomes have a saying: “If you want your cheeks to have a healthy glow, eat carrots every day.”
‘So that means that all gnomes like carrots?' the girl asked in interest.
‘Like is not the right word, we need carrots. Gnomes grow very slowly – a couple of centimetres every hundred years. Carotene, which is found in carrots, turns into a growth vitamin, and helps us grow more quickly. Carotene deficiency causes night blindness - loss of sight in dim light. We live underground where it's pretty dark, that's why carrots are worth more to us than gold,' the gnome explained.
‘Darling gnome, do you only eat cooked carrots?' Lucy asked.
‘We're also fond of raw carrots, but my old teeth cope better with boiled ones. Now, I'm eight hundred years old, and I'm going to get some sleep,' the gnome said, and he disappeared.
That day, Lucy brought endless bunches of carrots which she had secretly plucked from her granny's vegetable patch to the old pine tree. When her granny noticed the empty vegetable patch she accused the boys next door of
