Fred Register Endowment for Children’s Theatre

Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Based on one of Aesop's famous fables, Henry is a simple and happy woodsman. Every day, he chops trees down and sells them at the market. One day, his friend Jim startles him and Henry drops his axe into a pond. Lily, the water fairy of the pond, appears and retrieves Henry's axe. Lily gives Henry a test to find out his honesty and in return for his honesty Lily presents Henry with two ornate axes. Jim finds out Henry's good fortune and decides to drop his axe into the pond. Lily gives Jim the same honesty test—he fails miserably and to punish Jim for lying Lily turns him into a tree.
