TRR: Episode 65, “Eva’s Adventures in Shadow-land” (Part 1)



For the next several episodes, we’ll be reading from an “Alice in Wonderland” hopeful, one of the many books that popped up trying to cash in on the “Alice” concept. The formula is very familiar, as you’ll see (little girl with blonde hair and impeccable manners meets a magical creature and is transported into a magical world where she has strange adventures, etc.). To its credit, the book at least tries to do its own thing, and the description of the mysterious Shadow-land is quite original.

TRR: Episode 32, “Keeping Tryst”



We submit for your approval a story set in the fair days of King Arthur and the Age of Chivalry. Our selection this week is a story from children’s author Annie Fellows Johnston, in which a young page sets out to earn his knighthood. As usual with stories for children from the early 20th Century, this one is built around a strong moral lesson.

TRR: Episode 29, “The Velveteen Rabbit”



Just in time for Easter, or any time for that matter, we present for your consideration the story of the Velveteen Rabbit. Elements of the story have been around and incorporated into other stories both before and since Margery Bianco first conceived the tale, including a vague reference to The Blue Fairy in Pinocchio, and later, to the Lion King who ruled over the Island of Misfit Toys in “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
