This week featured an amusing Grimm Brothers tale of the Town Musicians of Bremen (they aren’t necessarily good musicians, and they aren’t even in Bremen!). Ben Weatherstaff becomes endears himself to The Secret Garden team, and the Magic gives Colin new strength.

The answer to last week’s riddle was “duck-billed platypus” – look back to the last post if you want to see the riddle.
The Secret Garden is moving in very exciting direction as Mary and Dickon take the invalid Colin to see the garden, and he makes a fateful declaration. This week we also squeezed in a story about a man put in an awkward situation by the animals he hunts. Plus, we started our summer riddle series with a riddle about an animal which may be mythical, but may also be real. If you can figure it out, send you answer to storynory[at]ktna.org, or call the station at 733-1700 and leave a message. (more…)
We are a little behind on Storynory & Mory posts, so here is one to catch up. There have been 3 weeks of The Secret Garden, during which Mary becomes ever more entwined with her cousin Colin. One week also featured the well-known morality tale of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Enjoy!
Well, the rhinoceros was not exactly in the garden, but the week’s episode did have a story about a rhinoceros AND a story about a garden. Mary defies Colin in The Secret Garden, and an impolite rhinoceros defies the wrong person and ends up with wrinkly skin.
Even witches can be victims of bullying at school, as we find out in this new Katie story. The second half of The Secret Garden, Chapter 15, also played this week, but if you need to hear it just listen to the full chapter at the link from last week. Also posted are items from the special fundraising program – Tevi’s voicemail message from the Story Troll cave and her follow-up story about what happened to set her free.

Goats to the Rescue!
It is springtime on the moor, the robin is building a nest, and the secret garden is coming to life. So are Colin and Mary. In addition to The Secret Garden, there was a bit of discussion about the mysterious Billy Goat Bridge – listen in to KTNA at 7:00pm on Thursday for more of that story.
As our story continues, the new-found Colin summons Mary back to his room to continue their conversation from the night before, and these two unusual, lonely children begin behaving just like….children.
