This is the story of Katharina von Bora, the nun who, with eleven others late one night, slipped out of the Marienthron Convent and hid among the herring barrels on Herr Koppe's wagon. The driver, having tied down the heavy canvas over the barrels, clambered up onto the wagon and urged the horses on their way. The nuns shivered and gagged as they crouched among the smelly fish barrels. If Katharina von Bora had been content to count her beads, do penance for her sins, and close her mind to the truths of the Bible, she would have lived and died in the obscurity of the Convent. But because she followed where God led, she became the first lady of the evangelical Reformation, the wife of the great Dr. Martin Luther, and the mother of a fine family. She lived to b others.
She found true happiness in serving those in need. The poor, little escaped nun died a truly rich person.

Prinsessan bodde i ett fasligt vackert slott tillsammans med sin pappa kungen och sin mamma drottningen och hundra hovdamer och lika många hovherrar. Några barn fanns det inte i hela slottet, för Lise-Lotta hade inga syskon, och drottningen trodde inte, att det gick an, att små prinsessor lekte med såna barn, som inte var prinsessor eller prinsar. Och eftersom Lise-Lotta aldrig såg några barn, så trodde hon att det bara fanns stora människor i världen och så hon själv, som var liten. Prinsessan Lise-lotta bor på ett slott fyllt med alla slags leksaker man kan tänka sig. Trots det tycker hon inte om att leka. Det är inte förrän hon träffar den jämnåriga flickan Maja, och hennes träklump till docka, som hon upptäcker lekens förtrollande kraft. Novellen Prinsessan som inte ville leka utkom första gången 1949 i samlingen Nils Karlsson Pyssling.
