    The Gingerbread Man

    The Gingerbread Man

    We are back for season 5 and thank you so much to everyone who has listened and enjoyed all our stories so far! It only seems right to return with a tale just right for this festive time of year, and so we bring you the tale of The Gingerbread Man! Although this is not a Christmas tale in the truest sense, it always reminds me of the holidays, and I've only ever eaten gingerbread at Christmas, but how about you? maybe you've been lucky enough to eat gingerbread all year round! We hope you enjoy gearing up for Christmas with this wonderfully funny story, and we can't wait to bring you more!

    The Sword in the Stone!

    The Sword in the Stone!

    Here is another well-loved tale that I hadn't heard in years, and rediscovering it was a joy! This classic has its roots in Excalibur, the name given to the sword of King Arthur! The story goes that as a boy, Arthur alone was able to draw the sword out of a stone in which it had been magically fixed. A book called Merlin, written all the way back in 1200 was the first to mention the "sword in the stone" . In another version of the story, it is said the sword was given to Arthur by the Lady of the Lake - and upon his death in battle, a hand reached out of the lake to take back the sword that had kept him safe all through the years - Maybe sometime soon we can hear that story too!

    Sleeping Beauty

    Sleeping Beauty

    We are back after a short break, and thank you so much for bearing with us! Well, what can we say about this tale, it speaks for itself! As you know, we dont usually go in for the Prince/Princess dialogue here at land of nod, its often unfair to women and men alike! But this version puts much more emphasis on other elements of the story, which are really rather beautiful! The help that Beauty receives is much more about the 7 fairies, or guardian spirits, that come into her life, and in my view the real hero of the story is the 7th fairy, who is smart enough to find a work around the dark spell cast on Beauty. Also, as a kid, I was fascinated by this movie and by the image of the castle and all its inhabitants being held in space and time with Beauty, for one hundred years, suspended by a magic spell and invisible to everyone else! We really hope you enjoy this tale as much as we did!

    Big Mouth and the Giant

    Big Mouth and the Giant

    I have said this before and I'm sure I'll say it again, but I think this is my favourite story so far. Sometimes you just come across a gem, and although I can't find exactly where this story originated, I know that it's an old one and has reappeared in many forms! I actually giggled while recording it and left it in because if it can make me laugh then it may just have a chance with the kids- we all know they are the most discerning of audiences! Thanks so much for listening, and I hope you giggle too!

    Jason and the Golden Fleece!

    Jason and the Golden Fleece!

    We are back with another classic and it's fantastic! Full of action and adventure, this one is a wee bit longer also, and perfect for smallies who love a brave and daring hero! It always amazes me just how long these stories have survived and transformed, and again and again, we look back to ancient Greece for some of the best stories ever told! This is most definitely one of them and we hope you enjoy it!
