When Emil got his head stuck in the soup tureen

Today, there was meat broth for dinner in Katthult. Everyone liked it, especially Emil who put his whole head into tureen to get the last drop out. But then his head got stuck and the family had to go to the doctor in Mariannelund to get him out of the tureen. What a disaster, and today of all days when there was going to be a party in Katthult and the important Miss Petrell was coming for a visit. The flag was flying when she came, but not any old flag, because little Ida wanted to know if you could see all the way to Mariannelund from the top of the flagpole, and Emil, who was a kind soul, helped her to find out of course.
