Martha takes her golden egg to the pet shop “‘A golden egg?’ said the man in the pet shop. ‘For that puppy? A golden egg for that puppy? Five hundred quid, that puppy’s worth! Haven’t you got any real money? I don’t swop puppies for eggs! What kind of gold is it? Is it proper goose gold? A real golden egg, from a proper magical goose? Oh, all right. It’s a deal.'”
