"The Turnip"

The turnip grew sweet, firm, and bigger than big. Grandpa tried to pull it out, but pull as he might, the turnip wouldn't budge. / Illustration by I. A. Kuznetsov to the Russian fairy tale "The Turnip".

Naeris kasvas magusaks, tugevaks ja väga-väga suureks. Taat läks naerist välja tõmbama, tõmbab-tõmbab, aga välja tõmmata ei jaksa. / I. Kuznetsovi illustratsioon vene muinasjutule "Naeris".

Выросла репка сладка, крепка, большая-пребольшая. Пошел дед репку рвать, тянет-потянет, вытянуть не может. /Иллюстрация худ. И. А. Кузнецова к русской сказке "Репка".

Postcard, 1956.
