The second chapter of The Secret Garden follows the newly-orphaned Mary Lennox to England and begins revealing something about the strange house to which she is headed.

Do you know a nursery rhyme that has a “Mary” as a main character other than “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” “Mary, Mary Quite Contrary,” or “Mary Had a Pretty Bird”? If so, please send to storynory{at}ktna.org.

Storynory & Mory – The Secret Garden Begins

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

This week began a long story that we will cover over the next several weeks, a reading of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, published in 1910 as a serial and 1911 as a book. The story starts in India, so the opening act is was the Indian Tale of the Brahman, the Tiger, and the Jackal. Enjoy!

Bertie and the General

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

In this first new Storynory & Mory following Tevi’s retirement, Prince Bertie the Frog made a surprising phone call to Charlie to help provide guidance on what stories to play next. His first recommendation? Bertie’s pick was The Secret Garden, a book by Frances Hodgson Burnett read by Natasha over several episodes. The first episode will be broadcast next week. For this week, Bertie modestly recommended a story about himself, Bertie and the General, which is a quite good tale. You can listen to Charlie’s conversation with Prince Bertie as well as the story by clicking the links below.

Storynory & Mory – The Christmas Cherry Tree and A Christmas Carol Part 2

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

A Christmas Carol continued this week, with Ebeneezer Scrooge meeting the ghost of his business partner Marley and the ghost of Christmas Past. Tune in next week on Christmas Day to hear the conclusion! Also this week, we played The Christmas Cherry Tree, which is drawn from a medieval English tale about Sir Cleges. It is a bit off-beat for modern Christmas sensibilities, but fun.
