CHAPTER I
THE UGLY GOBLIN
WHEN Betsy lifted the iron hand that was the
knocker on Grandma's white door, she knew
exactly the sound that it would make. Knock!
Knock! Knock-knock! Inside she could hear
Grandma's soft footsteps. Then the door opened
and she was folded in a big hug, her head against
the crisp, gray dress that always held a pleasant
smell of spices. As soon as the greeting was over,
-Betsy looked around the wide, high-ceilinged hall­
way, glad to see that nothing had changed since
per last visit The white wooden panelling, the
bale wall paper picturing a mill and water wheel,
the polished table with the round mirror above it,
the stairs winding remotely to the cool rooms
above, the doorway at the other end, leading to a
Stepping-stone path that travelled to the end of the
garden where the sunflowers grew.
