My name is Fit3. I think you are an amazing girl. You are always calm and you never give up in every task and situation that was given to you. You even keep your promises and you were calm when the Czar was angry at you. You can solve the problem that is impossible to do so.You are also my favourite character and you are pretty too. I liked the part where you completed all the tasks which were given. When I finished reading, I had learned many moral values. I love reading your book and hope to see you soon!

This story is about a clever girl called Katya. One day, the Czar of Russia was riding in his coach and saw a farmer eating some bread. The Czar was hungry so he stopped the coach. He asked the farmer for some bread and then ate the bread. The Czar told the farmer that it was the best bread he ever tasted and asked him who made the bread. The farmer told the Czar that his daughter, Katya who made the bread. The Czar wanted to know more about Katya. The farmer told him that she's a wonderful girl, pretty, strong, a good farmer, a good singer and a good baker. The farmer also told the Czar that his daughter is the cleverest person in Russia. The Czar then jumped back on his coach and said he will be back. The next day, he went to the farmer's house. He told the farmer to asked Katya to hatch some eggs into chickens. She thought of an idea.
The next day, the Czar came to the farmer's house again and saw a girl singing while throwing some boiled beans on to the ground. The Czar was confused.
