If you were sitting in a tree and could only come down for someone you would like to marry, who would you pick?
* The best dancer?
* The very rich one?
* Or the very strong and fearsome one, who promises to cut off the head of anyone who bothers you?
Decisions, decisions! Monka was the girl in the tree. Who did she pick? Did she even pick? And, why on earth did anyone think that this was a good way to pick a husband?
Read Monka's story and other tales of courtship and love. I have to warn you though, if you're looking for "lovey-dovey, happily-ever-after" stories, some of these stories are not that.
