East of the sun west of the moon children's book
Once on a time there was a poor husbandman who had so many children that he hadn’t much of either food or clothing to give them. Pretty children they all were, but the prettiest was the youngest daughter, who was so lovely there was no end to her loveliness. If you will, I’ll make you as rich as you are now poor,” said the Bear. Nothing could get her to say anything else; so the man went out and settled it with the White Bear that he should come again the next Thursday evening and get an answer. So one day, ’twas on a Thursday evening late at the fall of the year, the weather was so wild and rough outside, and it was so cruelly dark, and rain fell and wind blew, till the walls of the cottage shook again. Well, the man would not be at all sorry to be so rich; but still he thought he must have a bit of a talk with his daughter first; so he went in and told them how there was a great White Bear waiting outside, who had given his word to make them so rich if he could only have the youngest daughter. Meantime he talked his daughter over, and kept on telling her of all the riches they would get, and how well off she would be herself; and so at last she thought better of it, and washed and mended her rags, made herself as smart as she could, and was ready to start. Next Thursday evening came the White Bear to fetch her, and she got upon his back with her bundle, and off they went. mind and hold tight by my shaggy coat, and then there’s nothing to fear,” said the Bear. There they all sat round the fire, busy with this thing and that. So, when they had gone a bit of the way, the White Bear said: “Are you afraid? So she rode a long, long way, till they came to a great steep hill. But just then, all at once something gave three taps on the window-pane. There, on the face of it, the White Bear gave a knock, and a door opened, and they came into a castle where there were many rooms all lit up; rooms gleaming with silver and gold; and there, too, was a table ready laid, and it was all as grand as grand could be. Then the father went out to see what was the matter; and, when he got out of doors, what should he see but a great big White Bear. Then the White Bear gave her a silver bell; and when she wanted anything, she was only to ring it, and she would get it at once. Well, after she had eaten and drunk, and evening wore on, she got sleepy after her journey, and thought she would like to go to bed, so she rang the bell; and she had scarce taken hold of it before she came into a chamber where there was a bed made, as fair and white as any one would wish to sleep in, with silken pillows and curtains and gold fringe. All that was in the room was gold or silver; but when she had gone to bed and put out the light, a man came and laid himself alongside her. That was the White Bear, who threw off his beast shape at night; but she never saw him, for he always came after she had put out the light, and before the day dawned he was up and off again. So things went on happily for a while, but at last she began to get silent and sorrowful; for there she went about all day alone, and she longed to go home to see her father and mother and brothers and sisters. So one day, when the White Bear asked what it was that she lacked, she said it was so dull and lonely there, and how she longed to go home to see her father and mother and brothers and sisters, and that was why she was so sad and sorrowful, because she couldn’t get to them. ” said the Bear, “perhaps there’s a cure for all this; but you must promise me one thing, not to talk alone with your mother, but only when the rest are by to hear; for she’ll take you by the hand and try to lead you into a room alone to talk; but you must mind and not do that, else you’ll bring bad luck on both of us.” So one Sunday the White Bear came and said, now they could set off to see her father and mother. Well, off they started, she sitting on his back; and they went far and long. At last they came to a grand house, and there her brothers and sisters were running about out of doors at play, and everything was so pretty, ’twas a joy to see. “This is where your father and mother live now,” said the White Bear; “but don’t forget what I told you, else you’ll make us both unlucky.” “No! bless her, she’d not forget;”—and when she had reached the house, the White Bear turned right about and left her. Then, when she went in to see her father and mother, there was such joy, there was no end to it. None of them thought they could thank her enough for all she had done for them. Now, they had everything they wished, as good as good could be, and they all wanted to know how she got on where she lived. Well, she said, it was very good to live where she did; she had all she wished. What she said beside I don’t know, but I don’t think any of them had the right end of the stick, or that they got much out of her. But, somehow or other, her mother got round her at last, and she had to tell her the whole story. But so, in the afternoon, after they had done dinner, all happened as the White Bear had said. So she said, how every night when she had gone to bed a man came and lay down beside her as soon as she had put out the light; and how she never saw him, because he was always up and away before the morning dawned; and how she went about woeful and sorrowing, for she thought she should so like to see him; and how all day long she walked about there alone; and how dull and dreary and lonesome it was. ” said her mother; “it may well be a Troll you slept with! Her mother wanted to talk with her alone in her bedroom; but she minded what the White Bear had said, and wouldn’t go upstairs. But now I’ll teach you a lesson how to set eyes on him. I’ll give you a bit of candle, which you can carry home in your bosom; just light that while he is asleep, but take care not to drop the tallow on him.” Yes! she took the candle and hid it in her bosom, and as night drew on, the White Bear came and fetched her away. But when they had gone a bit of the way, the White Bear asked if all hadn’t happened as he had said. “Well, she couldn’t say it hadn’t.” “Now, mind,” said he, “if you have listened to your mother’s advice, you have brought bad luck on us both, and then, all that has passed between us will be as nothing.” “No,” she said, “she hadn’t listened to her mother’s advice.” So when she reached home, and had gone to bed, it was the old story over again. There came a man and lay down beside her; but at dead of night, when she heard he slept, she got up and struck a light, lit the candle, and let the light shine on him, and so she saw that he was the loveliest Prince one ever set eyes on, and she fell so deep in love with him on the spot, that she thought she couldn’t live if she didn’t give him a kiss there and then. And so she did; but as she kissed him, she dropped three hot drops of tallow on his shirt, and he woke up. ” he cried; “now you have made us both unlucky, for had you held out only this one year, I had been freed. For I have a step-mother who has bewitched me, so that I am a White Bear by day, and a Man by night. But now all ties are snapt between us; now I must set off from you to her. “Tell me the way, then,” she said, “and I’ll search you out; that surely I may get leave to do.” “Yes,” she might do that, he said; “but there was no way to that place. She lives in a Castle which stands East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and there, too, is a Princess, with a nose three ells long, and she’s the wife I must have now.” She wept and took it ill, but there was no help for it; go he must. It lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and thither she’d never find her way.” So next morning, when she woke up, both Prince and castle were gone, and then she lay on a little green patch, in the midst of the gloomy thick wood, and by her side lay the same bundle of rags she had brought with her from her old home. And then she lay on a little green patch in the midst of the gloomy thick wood. So when she had rubbed the sleep out of her eyes, and wept till she was tired, she set out on her way, and walked many, many days, till she came to a lofty crag. “Well, all I know about him is, that he lives in the castle that lies East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and thither you’ll come, late or never; but still you may have the loan of my horse, and on him you can ride to my next neighbour. Under it sat an old hag, and played with a gold apple which she tossed about. Maybe she’ll be able to tell you; and when you get there, just give the horse a switch under the left ear, and beg him to be off home; and, stay, this gold apple you may take with you.” So she got upon the horse, and rode a long, long time, till she came to another crag, under which sat another old hag, with a gold carding-comb. Here the lassie asked if she knew the way to the Prince, who lived with his step-mother in the Castle, that lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and who was to marry the Princess with a nose three ells long. ” asked the old hag; “but maybe you are the lassie who ought to have had him? Here the lassie asked if she knew the way to the castle that lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and she answered, like the first old hag, that she knew nothing about it, except it was east of the sun and west of the moon. But she, too, didn’t know the way a bit better than the other two. “And thither you’ll come, late or never, but you shall have the loan of my horse to my next neighbour; maybe she’ll tell you all about it; and when you get there, just switch the horse under the left ear, and beg him to be off home.” And this old hag gave her the golden carding-comb; it might be she’d find some use for it, she said. “East of the sun and west of the moon it was,” she knew—that was all. So the lassie got up on the horse, and rode a far, far way, and a weary time; and so at last she came to another great crag, under which sat another old hag, spinning with a golden spinning-wheel. “And thither you’ll come, late or never; but I’ll lend you my horse, and then I think you’d best ride to the East Wind and ask him; maybe he knows those parts, and can blow you thither. Her, too, she asked if she knew the way to the Prince, and where the castle was that lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon. But when you get to him, you need only give the horse a switch under the left ear, and he’ll trot home of himself.” And so, too, she gave her the gold spinning-wheel. “Maybe you’ll find a use for it,” said the old hag. Then on she rode many many days, a weary time, before she got to the East Wind’s house, but at last she did reach it, and then she asked the East Wind if he could tell her the way to the Prince who dwelt east of the sun and west of the moon. Yes, the East Wind had often heard tell of it, the Prince and the castle, but he couldn’t tell the way, for he had never blown so far. “But, if you will, I’ll go with you to my brother the West Wind, maybe he knows, for he’s much stronger. So, if you will just get on my back, I’ll carry you thither.” Yes, she got on his back, and I should just think they went briskly along. So when they got there, they went into the West Wind’s house, and the East Wind said the lassie he had brought was the one who ought to have had the Prince who lived in the castle East of the Sun and West of the Moon; and so she had set out to seek him, and how he had come with her, and would be glad to know if the West Wind knew how to get to the castle. “Nay,” said the West Wind, “so far I’ve never blown; but if you will, I’ll go with you to our brother the South Wind, for he’s much stronger than either of us, and he has flapped his wings far and wide. You can get on my back, and I’ll carry you to him.” Yes! “Well, I have blustered about in most places in my time, but so far have I never blown; but if you will, I’ll take you to my brother the North Wind; he is the oldest and strongest of the whole lot of us, and if he don’t know where it is, you’ll never find any one in the world to tell you. she got on his back, and so they travelled to the South Wind, and weren’t so very long on the way, I should think. You can get on my back, and I’ll carry you thither.” Yes! When they got there, the West Wind asked him if he could tell her the way to the castle that lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon, for it was she who ought to have had the Prince who lived there. she got on his back, and away he went from his house at a fine rate. So when they got to the North Wind’s house, he was so wild and cross, cold puffs came from him a long way off. ” he roared out to them ever so far off, so that it struck them with an icy shiver. “Well,” said the South Wind, “you needn’t be so foul-mouthed, for here I am, your brother, the South Wind, and here is the lassie who ought to have had the Prince who dwells in the castle that lies East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and now she wants to ask you if you ever were there, and can tell her the way, for she would be so glad to find him again.” “Yes, I know well enough where it is,” said the North Wind; “once in my life I blew an aspen-leaf thither, but, I was so tired I couldn’t blow a puff for ever so many days, after. But if you really wish to go thither, and aren’t afraid to come along with me, I’ll take you on my back and see if I can blow you thither.” Yes! So the Princess got the gold apple; but when the lassie came up to the Prince’s bed-room at night he was fast asleep; she called him and shook him, and between whiles she wept sore; but all she could do she couldn’t wake him up. with all her heart; she must and would get thither if it were possible in any way; and as for fear, however madly he went, she wouldn’t be at all afraid. But they weren’t very far from land; and the North Wind had still so much strength left in him that he managed to throw her up on the shore under the windows of the castle which lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon; but then he was so weak and worn out, he had to stay there and rest many days before he could get home again. “It’s not for sale, for gold or money,” said the lassie. if I may get to the Prince, who lives here, and be with him to-night, you shall have it,” said the lassie whom the North Wind had brought. Next morning, as soon as day broke, came the Princess with the long nose, and drove her out again. “Very well, then,” said the North Wind, “but you must sleep here to-night, for we must have the whole day before us, if we’re to get thither at all.” Early next morning the North Wind woke her, and puffed himself up, and blew himself out, and made himself so stout and big, ’twas gruesome to look at him; and so off they went high up through the air, as if they would never stop till they got to the world’s end. Next morning the lassie sat down under the castle window, and began to play with the gold apple; and the first person she saw was the Long-nose who was to have the Prince. “If it’s not for sale for gold or money, what is it that you will sell it for? So in the daytime she sat down under the castle windows and began to card with her carding-comb, and the same thing happened. Down here below there was such a storm; it threw down long tracts of wood and many houses, and when it swept over the great sea, ships foundered by hundreds. The Princess asked what she wanted for it; and she said it wasn’t for sale for gold or money, but if she might get leave to go up to the Prince and be with him that night, the Princess should have it. So they tore on and on—no one can believe how far they went—and all the while they still went over the sea, and the North Wind got more and more weary, and so out of breath he could scarce bring out a puff, and his wings drooped and drooped, till at last he sunk so low that the crests of the waves dashed over his heels. But when she went up she found him fast asleep again, and all she called, and all she shook, and wept, and prayed, she couldn’t get life into him; and as soon as the first gray peep of day came, then came the Princess with the long nose, and chased her out again. So, in the daytime, the lassie sat down outside under the castle window, and began to spin with her golden spinning-wheel, and that, too, the Princess with the long nose wanted to have. So she threw up the window and asked what she wanted for it. But now you must know there were some people who had been carried off thither, and as they sat in their room, which was next the Prince, they had heard how a woman had been in there, and wept and prayed, and called to him two nights running, and they told that to the Prince. The lassie said, as she had said twice before, it wasn’t for sale for gold or money; but if she might go up to the Prince who was there, and be with him alone that night, she might have it. That evening, when the Princess came with her sleepy drink, the Prince made as if he drank, but threw it over his shoulder, for he could guess it was a sleepy drink. So, when the lassie came in, she found the Prince wide awake; and then she told him the whole story how she had come thither. “Ah,” said the Prince, “you’ve just come in the very nick of time, for to-morrow is to be our wedding-day; but now I won’t have the Long-nose, and you are the only woman in the world who can set me free. I’ll say I want to see what my wife is fit for, and beg her to wash the shirt which has the three spots of tallow on it; she’ll say yes, for she doesn’t know ’tis you who put them there; but that’s a work only for people, and not for such a pack of Trolls, and so I’ll say that I won’t have any other for my bride than the woman who can wash them out, and ask you to do it.” So there was great joy and love between them all that night. “I don’t know,” she said, “but I think I can.” And almost before she had taken it and dipped it in the water, it was as white as driven snow, and whiter still. At that the old hag flew into such a rage, she burst on the spot, and the Princess with the long nose after her, and the whole pack of Trolls after her—at least I’ve never heard a word about them since. But next day, when the wedding was to be, the Prince said: “First of all, I’d like to see what my bride is fit for.” “Yes! “Well,” said the Prince, “I’ve got a fine shirt which I’d like for my wedding shirt, but somehow or other it has got three spots of tallow on it, which I must have washed out; and I have sworn never to take any other bride than the woman who’s able to do that. As for the Prince and Princess, they set free all the poor people who had been carried off and shut up there; and they took with them all the silver and gold, and flitted away as far as they could from the Castle that lay East of the Sun and West of the Moon. How could better communication between the daughter and the White Bear have prevented him from having to go East of the Sun and West of the Moon? The daughter is very courageous in finding where her love has gone, and often says that she is not afraid. If she can’t, she’s not worth having.” Well, that was no great thing they said, so they agreed, and she with the long-nose began to wash away as hard as she could, but the more she rubbed and scrubbed, the bigger the spots grew. ” said the old hag, her mother, “you can’t wash; let me try.” But she hadn’t long taken the shirt in hand before it got far worse than ever, and with all her rubbing, and wringing, and scrubbing, the spots grew bigger and blacker, and the darker and uglier was the shirt. Do you think it is possible to be both courageous and afraid at the same time? Then all the other Trolls began to wash, but the longer it lasted, the blacker and uglier the shirt grew, till at last it was as black all over as if it had been up the chimney. ” said the Prince, “you’re none of you worth a straw; you can’t wash. Why there, outside, sits a beggar lassie, I’ll be bound she knows how to wash better than the whole lot of you. "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" (Norwegian: Østenfor sol og vestenfor måne) is a Norwegian fairy tale. "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" was collected by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe. It is Aarne–Thompson type 425A, the search for the lost husband; other tales of this type include "Black Bull of Norroway", "The King of Love", "The Brown Bear of Norway", "The Daughter of the Skies", "The Enchanted Pig", "The Tale of the Hoodie", "Master Semolina", "The Sprig of Rosemary", "The Enchanted Snake", and "White-Bear-King-Valemon". The White Bear approaches a poor peasant and asks if he will give him his prettiest and youngest daughter; in return, the bear will make the man rich. The girl is reluctant, so the peasant asks the bear to return, and in the meantime, persuades her. The White Bear takes her off to a rich and enchanted castle. At night, he takes off his bear form in order to come to her bed as a man, although the lack of light means that she never sees him. When she grows homesick, the bear agrees that she might go home as long as she agrees that she will never speak with her mother alone, but only when other people are about. At home, they welcome her, and her mother makes persistent attempts to speak with her alone, finally succeeding and persuading her to tell the whole tale. Hearing it, her mother insists that the White Bear must really be a troll, gives her some candles, and tells her to light them at night, to see what is sharing her bed. The youngest daughter obeys, and finds he is a highly attractive prince, but she spills three drops of the melted tallow on him, waking him. He tells her that if she held out a year, he would have been free, but now he must go to his wicked stepmother, who turned him into his form and lives in a castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon, and marry her hideous daughter, a troll princess. In the morning, the youngest daughter finds that the palace has vanished. Coming to a great mountain, she finds an old woman playing with a golden apple. The youngest daughter asks if she knows the way to the castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon. The old woman cannot tell her, but lends the youngest daughter a horse to reach a neighbor who might know, and gives her the apple. The neighbor is sitting outside another mountain, with a golden carding comb. She, also, does not know the way to the castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon, but lends the youngest daughter a horse to reach a neighbor who might know, and gives her the carding-comb. She, also, does not know the way to the castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon, but lends the youngest daughter a horse to reach the East Wind and gives her the spinning wheel. The East Wind has never been to the castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon, but his brother the West Wind might have, being stronger. The West Wind does the same, bringing her to the South Wind; the South Wind does the same, bringing her to the North Wind. The North Wind reports that he once blew an aspen leaf there, and was exhausted after, but he will take her if she really wants to go. The youngest daughter does wish to go, and so he takes her there. The next morning, the youngest daughter takes out the golden apple. The troll princess who was to marry the prince sees it and wants to buy it. The girl agrees, if she can spend the night with the prince. The troll princess agrees but gives the prince a sleeping drink, so that the youngest daughter cannot wake him. The same thing happens the next night, after the youngest daughter pays the troll princess with the gold carding-combs. During the girl's attempts to wake the prince, her weeping and calling to him is overheard by some imprisoned townspeople in the castle, who tell the prince of it. On the third night, in return for the golden spinning wheel, the troll princess brings the drink, but the prince does not drink it, and so is awake for the youngest daughter's visit. The prince tells her how she can save him: He will declare that he will marry anyone who can wash the tallow drops from his shirt since trolls, such as his stepmother and her daughter, the troll princess, cannot do it. So instead, he will call in the youngest daughter, and she will be able to do it, so she will marry him. The prince and his bride free the prisoners captive in the castle, take the gold and silver within, and leave the castle east of the Sun and west of the Moon. In folktales classified as tale type ATU 425A, "The Search for the Lost Husband" or "The Animal as Bridegroom", the maiden breaks a taboo or burns the husband's animal skin and, to atone, she must wear down a numbered pair of metal shoes. On her way to her husband, she asks for the help of the Sun, the Moon and the Wind.

Merrick bank credit card balance transfer
If you're in a bind and need cash now, you've got options thanks to the availability of personal loans, credit cards and other methods for stabilizing your finances. One solution is to transfer money from a credit card to your bank account—a cash advance. A cash advance lets you borrow money directly from your credit card rather than using your account for purchases. Some financial institutions allow you to directly transfer a cash advance to a checking account, while others require an extra step. Either way, due to hefty fees and steep interest rates that kick in right away, cash advances should only be used for emergencies. If you have a financial emergency and choose to take cash out via your credit card account, the way you'd do this is through a cash advance. This is a loan you must repay and that can't exceed the current balance available on your credit card. Be aware that interest starts accruing on the cash withdrawal as soon as you take it out. There's no grace period like there is with a typical credit card purchase, so if you need the money for something that you could just pay for with your card, it's better to that. But if you need cash, the process for getting your money depends on your credit card issuer, so you'll need to find out what they offer. Here are a few ways you can typically get cash advance money into your bank account: The short answer is no, it's not a good idea to transfer money from a credit card to your bank account. It's always a better option to use income or savings when possible to avoid going into debt. If it's an unavoidable emergency and you must take on debt, consider other options that carry lower interest first. This could mean a low interest personal loan, home equity line of credit or a new credit card with a 0% interest introductory offer. Or you could even try to borrow the money from a friend or family member. They might not be as bad as payday loans, but cash advances should never be the first option you consider for fast cash. For one, the interest rate on a cash advance is typically very high, so if it will take you some time to repay it, you'll pay a pretty penny in fees for this privilege. The interest rate on a cash advance is typically higher than the purchase APR on a credit card. But with a credit card purchase, you'll at least have a grace period of no interest for a few weeks, so a purchase will carry no interest if it is paid off fast enough. Cash advances have no grace period, so the interest starts accruing as soon as you take the cash out. Most credit cards carry a cash advance fee, which will be either a small flat fee or percentage of the advance amount, with the majority of card issuers charging a 5% fee for every cash advance. If you're taking out large amounts, that can add up fast. Only take out a cash advance if you absolutely need the money in an emergency and don't have more cost-effective options. It's not wise to rely on them whenever you need money. You should also aim to only take out a cash advance if you can pay it back very quickly and minimize the amount of interest you pay. If your financial institution has online bill pay, this makes it easy for you to quickly start repaying what you've borrowed. Keep in mind that using a cash advance to access money can have a negative impact on your credit. The amount of credit card debt you have relative to your total credit limit is called your credit utilization ratio, a factor that represents 30% of your credit score (it's the second-most important factor). To find your credit utilization ratio, divide how much you owe on all your cards by your total credit limit. Using a significant amount of your available credit can be a red flag to lenders and creditors. Because of this, it's considered ideal to keep your ratio under 30%. Say your credit card's credit limit is ,000 and you have a credit card balance of ,000. Taking out a cash advance of

,000 would cause your credit utilization ratio to jump to 60%. A ratio this high can start to negatively affect your credit score. Fast cash is tempting, and credit card issuers offer many different ways to easily get a cash advance, including the ability to directly transfer money from a credit card to your bank account. But it comes at a price, with high interest rates, steep fees and the potential to cause dings to your credit score, a cash advance is rarely your best option. If your current credit card's cash advance terms are really bad, consider finding a different credit card with lower cash advance fees or interest rates.
