In the end the royal couple had to give the prince to the giant. The giant had a daughter, and she and the prince grew very fond of each other. When the prince was grown and the giant sent him to clean the stables, she summoned animals to clean it for him.
When the giant sent him to empty a lake L: loch , she summoned fish to drink it. When the giant commanded him to bring down a bird's nest from a tall tree without breaking any of the eggs, she cut off her fingers and toes to make a stairway, but during that adventure one egg broke.
The prince and the giant's daughter decided to flee. The giant chased after them. The girl had Nix Nought Nothing throw down her comb, which became a brier, and then her hair dagger, which became a hedge of razors, and then she dashed a magic flask, which produced a wave that drowned the giant L. Jacobs' has woven in these details borrowing from other tales, acting upon Lang's suggestions. The giant's daughter was too weary to go on, and sent Nix Nought Nothing on ahead of her to the king's castle.
But the hen-wife whose son had died cursed him, and he fell into a deep slumber as soon as he arrived at the castle. The king and queen still did not recognize their grown son, and the king promised that whichever maiden can awaken the sleeping man shall marry him. Nicht had already been given a head start even before the giant's pursuit began.
No mention of curse or any cause for slumber. Promise for him to marry maiden who wakes him lacking. The giant's daughter finally arrived at the king's castle, and climbed a tree over a well to watch for the prince.
But when her reflection fell on the surface of the water, the gardener's daughter who came to fetch water mistook the image for her own. She decided she was beautiful enough to be a contender to marry the sleeping stranger. Pop Justice gave the song a positive review and rated the song :.
