Excerpt from The Russian Fairy Book
So she stripped off her dress and jumped into the water. As soon as she had ducked under, the little woman gave her a tap on the back.
Swim off, said she, a little White Duckling. And immediately the princess swam away in the shape of a White Duckling.
Then the sorceress put on the princess's clothes and ornaments, painted her cheeks, and sat down to wait for the prince. As soon as the puppy barked and the bell jingled, she ran to meet the prince, threw herself into his arms, kissed him.
