Sample passage:
King Apollo soon missed the cows and searched all the meadow for them. He traced them to the cave, but when he got close to it he found that all the hoof-prints led away from the opening, not into it. He was much puzzled, until an old man nearby told him that he had seen a baby with wings at his heels chasing the cows across the meadow. Apollo knew at once that the baby was his mischievous little brother, Hermes.
