Answer These Questions based on the text below!
Long ago, there lived a poor woodsman and his wife. One day the wife sighed and said, "If only we could have a son, even he was only as tall as a thumb." The time went by, and in the end thee women gave birth to a little boy who was exactly as tall as a thumb, so they called Tom Thumb.
As the years went by, the boy remained small but he became a kind and intelligent boy. One day, it was necessary to take the cart and go and fetch his father, but his mother was unable to go. "I'll go," said Tom Thumb.
It seemed impossible that someone so small could hold the reins, but then he climbed into the horse's ear, so that he could speak and tell it where to go. When this happened, all the passers-by thought that the horse must be very intelligent, to be able to go places by itself.
A circus master who also noticed it wanted to buy it, only then he learned that he wanted to buy the tiny boy instead. However, Tom's father would not have sold him for all the gold in the world. Then, Tom Thumb convinced him by saying,' "You need the
money,, don't you, Dad? Sell me to the circus and leave everything up to me."
In fact, as soon as he got a chance, Tom Thumb ran away from the circus and . since he was so small, he was able to avoid being recaptured and make his way back home.
