Storyteller: One day, Ichabod went to the home of Katrina Van Tassel. He gave her singing lessons each week. Many people in town admired Katrina, including Ichabod.
N3: Ichabod knocks on the front door of the mansion.
N1: A beautiful and cheery young woman answers.
Katrina: Mr. Crane! Isn’t my lesson tomorrow?
Ichabod: It is. I came by to give you a present.
N2: Ichabod holds out two shiny red apples.
Katrina: Why, thank you.
N3: Ichabod smiles shyly.
N1: The sound of horse hooves fills the air.
Katrina: That must be Brom Bones. He’s come to take me riding.
N2: A large man rides up on a big black horse.
Brom: Hello, Katrina.
N3: He points at Ichabod.
Brom: It looks like your scarecrow escaped from the cornfield.
Katrina: Stop it, Brom. That’s Mr. Crane, the new teacher.
Brom: Sorry, Crane. Your clothes are so loose, and your neck is so skinny.
N1: Brom chuckles unkindly.
N2: Katrina climbs onto Brom’s horse and waves goodbye to Ichabod.
Katrina: Don’t forget about my party, Mr. Crane!
N3: Brom frowns at Ichabod. Then he and Katrina ride off.
