Summary: Three brothers go to the old woman to find wives. She asks them to perform certain tasks to get three oranges from a ree. They fail and turn against each other in the process. Tomas is the only one who ends up with a wife.

Reflection: Long pages, but great story. The vocabulary is fairly simple.

Themes/Connections: folklore, Spanish culture, family, brothers, deceit
