Dragon Tales (Stories With Bite) - The Talking Eggs: Dragon Tales
A beautiful theatrical telling, for children, of a folktale from the American South with live music, imagination and... wooden buckets.
But... the ordinary eggs, they began to speak! Calling out 'Take me, take me!
Ooooh... how she wished she could take a fancy one...
The Talking Eggs is a story that has strong echoes of Frau Holle, one of the Grimm Brothers' collection. The tale seems to have emigrated into the American South and found new motifs, but retained the aspects of the Other-worldly Old Woman, the two sisters who are treated very differently by their mother and the come-uppances for those who ignore, rail against or even try to get the better of natural orders and unspoken respect for humanity and all life.
Dragon Tales ARE stories with bite, and this story has the occasional slightly scary bit that might give very small children the collie-wobbles...!
