Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 1

Happy Chinese New Year! This is The Year of the Rabbit, and I — as you know — am a rabbit. Welcome to my year!

In celebration of this magical day, I am launching my year-long (and hopefully longer) project: Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre. Every week I will post a podcast where I read aloud a fairy tale, just for you. I’ve started with The Complete Brother’s Grimm — which has enough fodder for a few years if I only post one a week…but we’ll see how it goes.

You won’t realize how many fairy tales you don’t actually know until you pick up a book and start reading all the ones in between Cinderella and Briar Rose and The Seven Swans. Now, you don’t have to! I will happily read them for you.

The story I have for you today is called “The Fox and The Geese.” It is a sweet little tale about a fox who happens upon some unsuspecting geese…and how the victims “outfox” their captor.

Run time is about 1:45. Enjoy!
