Gather the children and the old folks and grab a seat on the front porch, because here’s another short folk tale told by master storyman, Rob Cleveland. Filled with plucked banjos and fun, tasteful sound effects, this seven-minute adventure pits a farmer and his wife against a "big, gruff ogre" who claims to own the whole valley. What follows is a test of wits. With a quaint moral lesson and a satisfying end, The Ogre Bully makes for a satisfying lunch time treat...or a positive lead-in to naptime. Adults, listen for a playfully veiled political satire. But don’t spoil it for the kiddos.
This whimsically drawn story, illustrated by A. B. Hoffmire, is based on an old Swedish folktale.
