Story Summary

When the witch receives a parcel, the first in her life, she and her cat have fun imagining what it might contain. Soon they have imagined such wonders that whatever is truly within would surely be a disappointment, so the witch drops the unopened parcel in the river, preferring the gifts of her imagination.
