Lily, a frog, tells fairytales, folk tales and bedtime stories to kids.
The Forest Bride a Finnish Fairy Tale
A Finnish fairy tale re-written and re-told for Tales from the Lilypad by Marlene Wurfel. Eino must look for a sweetheart but gets lost in the Dark Woods. Then he sees a little cottage with a bright light in the window and smoke curling up from the chimney. Could his true love be inside?
A camping story forged in some of Canada's beautiful national and provincial parks, with gratitude to all the squirrels who helped write, voice, and edit this episode.
A Tales from the Lilypad original inspired by Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit: Peter Squirrel knows he shouldn't hang around Campsite #11, his father had a terrible accident there, but it smells like marshmallows and cookies.
Original music by Reid Alexander Whelton
The Little People: A Fairy Tale by a Real Queen
A version of The Little People by Carmen Sylva, Queen of Roumania (1901). Edited, annotated and re-arranged by Marlene Wurfel.

Legend of the Wooden Shoe
Lily finds this old folktale about the origins of wooden shoes, The Netherlands, and gnomes to have a fascinating and different way of looking at our relationship with nature.
It's rewritten and rearranged for Tales from the Lilypad by Marlene Wurfel. “The Legend of the Wooden Shoe” is adapted from a 1918 version in English by William Elliot Griffis in Dutch Fairytales for Young Folks.
Original music composed by Reid Alexander Whelton for Tales from the Lilypad.
