Once upon a time, in a small village, there lived a poor farmer who decided to grow turnips. He carefully tended to his plants, and soon, little turnips began to sprout. Among them, there was one turnip that stood out—it was enormous compared to the others.

The farmer thought, “It’s time to harvest this giant turnip.” With determination, he tried to pull it from the ground, but it wouldn’t budge. He called his wife for help, and together they struggled to uproot the turnip but failed.

Realizing they needed more help, the farmer’s wife asked their neighbor’s daughter to assist. With three of them trying, they still couldn’t move the stubborn turnip. The girl suggested bringing her brother for added strength.

Now, a team of four—the farmer, his wife, the girl, and her brother—pulled together, but the turnip remained firmly rooted. They were puzzled by the extraordinary strength of this turnip.

The boy had an idea and said, “I’ll fetch our dog; maybe it can help us.” Even with the dog’s help, the turnip didn’t yield. So, the boy’s quick-thinking dog brought a cat to join the effort.

With six participants—the old farmer, his wife, the girl, her brother, the dog, and the cat—they made a final attempt to pull out the turnip. Victory! With combined strength, they succeeded.

Delighted, the farmer exclaimed, “You’ve all been a great help! Let’s celebrate with a turnip soup party at my house tonight.”

They took the colossal turnip home, and the farmer’s wife crafted a delicious soup. As evening fell, their unlikely group of helpers—the mouse, cat, dog, boy, and girl—gathered for a delightful turnip soup party.

The girl remarked, “I’ve never tasted such a delicious soup before.” Her brother agreed. They enjoyed the heartwarming soup and celebrated their collective success.
