26. The Wishing-Table, The Gold-Ass, and the Cudgel in the Sack

Tricked by a lying goat, a tailor kicks out his three sons. After acquiring magical gifts, they head back home to their father, but a dastardly inn-keeper has other plans…

In "The Wishing-table, The Gold-Ass, and the Cudgel in the Sack" we meet a table with no appearance, a gold-depositing donkey, and a time-keeping cudgel.

The story then leads us on to investigating a potentially still running London ice cream parlour and the grisly French fairy tale ‘Donkey Skin’.
