Scuola dell ’ infanzia "P. Guarneri" ITALY Vision and interpretation of the icelandic history BUKOLLA An angel is calling Bukolla An old manis walking with a stick and a bag with something to eat. He climbs the mountain and feel "Mu" It’s the cow. He climbs even higher. At every step feels the cow closer, because it goes higher and higher, where is she. He goes even higher and the cow... "Moo" strong … what a fear. There's a man with a red ant and you hear a motor. The old man and Bukolla come to a creek and see a giant who makes noise with his feet when he walks. Bukolla and the old man are happy. The old man crosses the river and goes by the giant. Even Bukolla goes there and drinks. The old man and Bukolla back to where they were before, on the other side of the river, and they are happy. They come where there is a fire, maybe a volcano or maybe it was too hot. Here come two people who want to see the fire, even the giant approaches. The old man and Bukolla are still happy, because the giant he has not eaten them. The rain puts out the fire and then comes the giant that has turned into a monster, but luckily he does not eat Bukolla and the old man, because they run away.
Children who are 6/7 and 4/5 years old read your story: >The first class found the story funny and the sound effects made them laugh! They thought the story included a cow, a mountain climber, a giant, a fairy, water, fire and thunder. They watched it a few times to try and understand it. The children first thought the cow was putting out the fire with her udder. Later, we realised how she helped to put out the fire by drinking up the water. One child was certain that the noise was a woodpecker, but the other children thought it was thunder. Thank you for sharing your story with us. We enjoyed it! >The second class thought it was about an Old lady who had a toothbrush and was wearing her pyjamas. She sees a cow on the mountain. The woman moos loudly because it is very cold! A giant comes and cow uses pixie dust magic. The water comes and the cow drinks it. Two giants come back and the cow makes fire come with magic. Then magic thunder comes. The giant isn’t happy so he goes away. We liked the cow mooing loudly. We liked the giant because of his big stomps. We learnt that giants are big and tall and don’t like loud noises!

Traditional Story from Iceland The interpretation by the Portuguese Children Once upon a time there was Lord who walked trough Vialonga. Then he heard a sound of a cow in the distance. He walked a bit more and could heard better. Finally found the cow and made a pat. Next little cow the kitty liked parties and granted him 3 wishes. The 1st wish was to bring up rain and the little cow drank water because she was thirsty. The 2nd wish was to bring up fire and desire did appear... ( and we couldn't understand why.) The 3rd wish was to bring up wind to extinguish the fire. A very loud noise was heard and then appeared a big monster screaming and the lord and the little cow ran away.
Búkolla – The original Icelandic Folk story Once upon a time there was a man who lived with his wife in a cottage. They had one son, but they weren't very fond of him. There were only the three of them in the cottage. The couple also had a cow, which was all their livestock. The cow was called Búkolla. One day the cow had a calf, and the woman herself sat with her while she was delivering. When the cow had calved and had recovered, the woman dashed into the house. A little later she returned to the barn to see how the cow was doing, but by then, Búkolla had disappeared. The man and his wife went out at once to look for the cow, and they searched for it both far and wide but to no avail. On their return, they were in a foul mood and told the boy to get out and not come within their sight again until he brought back the cow. They packed him some food for the road and gave him new shoes, and with that he set off. He walked for a long time until he became hungry and sat down to eat. In his desperation, he said out loud, "Moo now, my dearest Búkolla, if you're alive anywhere!" From far, far away, he heard the cow's response. Again, the boy walked for a long time before he sat down to have another bite. Then he repeated, "Moo now, my dearest Búkolla, if you're alive anywhere." This time he heard the cow respond somewhat closer than before. Once more the boy walked for a long time until he reached the brink of an enormously high cliff. Having walked up an appetite, he sat down to eat, again saying as before, "Moo now, my dearest Búkolla, if you're still alive somewhere." The cow's response now came from right under his feet. Somehow, the boy clambered down the cliff, and reaching the bottom, he saw a large cave carved out of it. He went in, and there, bound to a low partition, he found Búkolla. He untied the cow immediately, led her out, and set off back home. The boy had gone only a small part of the way when he saw that a huge ogress was coming after him, accompanied by another smaller one. He realized at once that the big ogress, with her long strides, would catch up with him in no time, and he said, "What are we to do now, my dearest Búkolla?" "Pick a hair from my tail, and put it on the ground," said -the cow. He did. Then the cow said to the hair, "By these words I lay the spell that you become a stream so large that no one can cross it but the bird on its wing." At the very instant, the hair turned into a tremendous stream. When the ogress reached the bank of the stream, she said, "You won't get away with that, my boy." And she told the little ogress, "Run home, girl, and get your father's big bull." The young one ran off and soon returned with an enormous bull, which instantly drank up the whole stream. Again, the boy feared that the ogress would overtake him very quickly because of her long strides, and he said, "What are we to do now, my dearest Búkolla?" "Pick a hair from my tail, and put it on the ground." He did just that. Then Búkolla said to the hair, "By these words I lay the spell that you become a blaze so hot that no one can cross it but the bird on its wing." As soon as she had spoken, the hair turned into a big fire. When the ogress reached the blazing wall, she shouted, "You won't get away with that, my boy." And to the smaller ogress she said, "Go get your father's big bull, girl." The girl did and returned with the bull, which then urinated all the water it had drunk from the stream and thus put out the fire. Once more, the boy saw that the ogress would catch up with him very soon because of the length of her strides, and he said, "What are we to do now, my dearest Búkolla?" "Pick a hair from my tail, and put it on the ground," she said. Then, to the hair, "By these words I lay the spell that you become a mountain so big that no one can surmount it but the bird on its wing." The hair immediately turned into such a huge mountain that the boy could see only straight up into the sky. When the ogress came to t he mountain, she roared, "You won't get away with that, my boy." To the smaller ogress she said, "Go get me your father's big drill, my girl." Off went the young one, returning with the drill. The ogress then drilled a hole straight through the mountain. But when she could see through it, she became a bit too rash. She squeezed herself into the hole, which was too narrow for her, and got stuck. When the sun rays hit her face the next morning, she turned into stone right there in the hole. And that's where she remains to this day. As for the boy, he reached the cottage safe and sound with his Búkolla, and the old couple was quite relieved to have them both back.
