Princess + The Pea
Is she or isn’t she a real princess….?mmm! I wonder.
“Pile up the mattresses, nice and high, Tell her it’s for comfort if she asks why.
If she says it’s bumpy, a Princess she must be. For only a Princess would notice a pea! But if she sleeps as snug as a bug in a rug, she cannot be a Princess, she can only be a THUG!”
A romantic tale of Princesses, Princes and Mushy Peas
(Based on a Japanese Folk Tale): Granny Dumpling makes the best dumplings in Japan. She is also fearless. When a fresh batch of dumplings rolls away from her house she must follow - even if this means following a hairy little goblin (an Oni) into his underground lair.

The Many Legged Musicians of Bremen (Brothers Grimm): Have you ever wanted to be in a band? Looking cool with a guitar slung over your shoulder? Twiddling drumsticks high in the air? Well, this was the dream of four friends: Rodney the Donkey, Rufus the Dog, Mimi the Cat and Spockerel the Cockerel. But to fulfil their destiny they must brave the woods where only bandits dwell.
