Presenting an excerpt from The Story Teller, Vol. I (1910) of the entry “The Flying Ship” from the collection by Petr Polevoi, which tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“The man did not like to refuse, so he sat in the ship, and they flew on farther. They flew and flew, and look! — a man was coming along hopping on one leg, with the other leg tied tightly to his ear.

“Good-day, uncle; why are you hopping on one leg?”

“You see if I were to untie the other I should stride half round the world at a single stride.”
