Oh, I know where the Devil lives. He lives with his grandmother in the woods, in a tumbledown house made of rocks. The grandmother is a kind old bird. Very wise. Of course, the Devil doesn’t know that. He thinks the old woman is just another one of his captives. Silly boy! His ignorance is almost endearing!
A VERY Old Woman in The Dragon and His Grandmother, Yellow Fairy Book. Picture by Adolph von Menzel.
