Brat, is homeless, and she is in the dung heap. She felt nothing, but hunger.
Oh, please mistress, a little to eat? I will work mistress. I am stronger and smarter than I seem.
Hey, Dung Beetle. No beggars in this village. Away. Those who don't work don't eat.
So, Brat got the name "Beetle". She helped the lady with work in order to get food everyday. The lady was a midwife who's name is "Jane". She advised pregnant woman and helped in delivering babies. Beetle became friends with the cat. Beetle became known as the midwife's apprentice.
The miller's wife needed the midwife, but she was not there. So, the miller made Beetle to help his wife in the midwife's place. But, Beetle wasn't able to help. When, the midwife arrives, Jane helps and scolds Beetle.
I don't know what to do!
The midwife arrives to scold Beetle and to help the miller's wife.
The midwife twists her left leg, so she sends Beetle to attend the Saint Swithin's Day Fair at Gobnet-Under-Green to replenish her supplies.
Grab on! Red-headed lout!
Beetle hates being bullied by boys, but when a boy named "Will Russet" is in danger of drowning, Beetle helps him. Then, they become good friends.
Beetle's new name is "Alyce". Alyce helps Will's cow "Tinsey" deliver two baby calves.
