Once there was a place where nothing happened but where you could see a lot: a forest, a mountain, a pond and a pasture. Of all places, Nelly built her house there. When it was ready, she invited Sparrow. "Well done," Sparrow said, "but it is a pity that I can't see the forest anymore." And Sparrow flew off. Nelly decided to pull down one wall. Then Bear came along. Nelly invited him to stay the night, but Bear refused: he would miss the mountain too much. Nelly pulled down another wall. Duck missed the pond and Cow the pasture. Nelly demolished the two remaining walls. Suddenly she heard four knocks at the door...
