“The robber girl lifted little Gerda up, and had the forethought to tie her on, nay, even to give her a little cushion to sit upon. “Here, after all, I will give you your fur boots back, for it will be very cold, but I will keep your muff, it is too pretty to part with. Still you shan’t be cold. Here are my mother’s big mittens for you; they will reach up to your elbows!”

 

Gerda shed tears of joy.

 

“I don’t like you to whimper!” said the little robber girl. “You ought to be looking delighted; and here are two loaves and a ham for you, so that you shan’t starve.”

 

These things were tied on to the back of the reindeer; the little robber girl opened the door, called in all the big dogs, and then she cut the halter with her knife, and said to the reindeer, “Now run, but take care of my little girl!”

 

Gerda stretched out her hands in the big mittens to the robber girl and said good-bye; and then the reindeer darted off over briars and bushes, through the big wood, over swamps and plains, as fast as it could go. The wolves howled and the ravens screamed, while the red lights quivered up in the sky.” (Source)
