In old years, one of the king had three sons. Now, when the sons began to age, the king took them and said:

That, sons, take the jib sail off into the open field and shoot: where the arrows fall, there is your destiny.
The sons bowed to his father, took the arrow out in the open field, put bows and fired.
The older son's arrow fell on Boyarsky Dvor, raised arrow boyar's daughter. The middle son fell down arrow on the broad merchant yard, picked it up a merchant's daughter. And the youngest son, Ivan Tsarevich, the arrow went up and flew himself does not know where. There he went, went, went to the swamp, he sits the frog down, picked up his arrow.

He scrutinise Ivan Tsarevich. Nothing to do, took the frog brought it home.
The king had three weddings: the eldest son got married on the boyar's daughter, middle - merchant, and the unfortunate Ivan Tsarevich on the frog.
Behold, the king called his sons:

The sons bowed to his father and went.
Prince Ivan comes home, sat down and hung his head.
The frog on the floor jump, asks him:

The frog says:

Ivan Tsarevich went to bed, and the frog jumped onto the porch, took off her frog skin and turned into Vasilisa the wise, so beautiful, as in the tale will tell.
Vasilisa the wise hit in their hands, and shouted:
- Nurses, nannies, gather, sneezies! Sew me by the morning of this shirt, which I saw in my native priest.
Prince Ivan woke up in the morning, the frog again rides on the floor, but the shirt is on the table, wrapped in a towel. Glad Ivan Tsarevich took the shirt and carried him to the father. The king was received gifts from the big sons. The eldest son was deployed shirt, the king took it and said:

Went brethren home - those two - and judge between them:

Ivan Tsarevich hung his head, came home.
The frog asks him:
What was scrutinise?
- It is necessary to Zavtra bake king bread.

And those daughters-in-law first, then laughed at the frog, and now sent a grandmother-Sidorenko to see how the frog will bake bread.
Frog cunning, she realized. Kneaded kwasny, stove top broke Yes right there, in the hole, all kvasny and knocked. Grandmother Sidorenko resorted to the king's daughters-in-law, all told, and they just started to do.
And the frog jumped onto the porch, turned into Vasilisa the wise, hit their hands:

Prince Ivan woke up in the morning, and even on the table is bread, jeweled different tricks, on the sides of the patterns printed on top of the city gates.
Ivan Tsarevich was delighted, wrapped the bread in the fly, suffered to the father. And the king at that time took the loaves from the big sons. Their wives had podpuskali the dough in the oven as they babeskatharine said,
and came at them one burnt dirt. The king took the bread from his eldest son, looked up and sent in humans. Adopted from the average of the son, and there sent. And filed as Prince Ivan, the Tsar said:

And the king commanded three sons, to-morrow came to him at the feast together with their wives.
Again the return of Ivan Tsarevich home sad, below the shoulders hung his head.
The frog on the floor bounces:

- Frog, frog, how can I not grieve! Father punished me to come with you to the feast, and as I love you people will show?
The frog says:

She waved her left sleeve - and suddenly there was a lake, waved his right sleeve - swam across the lake white swans. The king and guests diva was given.
And the older daughter went to dance: waved his sleeve - only offers splattered, waved to the others - only the bones shattered, one bone to the king in the eye hit. The king became angry and drove both daughters-in-law.
At that time, Ivan was away slowly, ran home, I found a frog skin and threw it into the furnace, he burnt with fire.
Vasilisa the wise returns home, have missed - no frog skin. She sat down on the bench, was miserable, depressed and says Ivan-Tsarevich:

Turned into Vasilisa the wise gray cuckoo and flew out the window.
Prince Ivan cried, cried, bowed to the four directions and walked aimlessly - in search of a wife, Vasilisa the Wise. He went close whether, how far will, sooner or boots have passed, the caftan Easter, little hat, rain Issac.
And there came to him an old man.

The hut turned to him before, back to the forest. Ivan Tsarevich went up to her and sees - on the stove, on the ninth brick, lies Baba Yaga bony feet, teeth - on the shelf, and the nose at the ceiling rooted.
"Why, my good fellow, come to me? "said Baba Yaga. - It tortured or things will lytell?
Prince Ivan replied:
