Would it surprise you to know that the story of Rapunzel happened in France? Well, it didn't really, but our story takes you on a frivolous frolic through the French countryside. The ogres garden in the mushroom patch while the corn and potato spies report back to Madame Gothel. Frenchy and his intense friends, the wood elves, do their best to help Rapunzel escape the grasp of Madame Gothel. The lost Prince, Rapunzel's parents, and her friends, the unicorns, try to help. Just when you think it's safe to cross the bridge, a troll and three billy goats gruff get in the way. It doesn't help that the three bears (or is it four?) confuse Rapunzel with Goldilocks and chase her through the forest. Add to that the gremlins trying to play tricks on everyone and you have chaos! Well, it's not that bad because the pixies foil the gremlins' plans most of the time. In short, Rapunzel and all the rest of the characters tell a silly tale of personal triumph and friendship.
||The Amazing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe
Purposely varying from the plot of Daniel Defoe's novel, MCT's Robinson Crusoe teaches the lesson that reading invites more than observation. Unlike TV and movies, which provide every detail, a book allows the reader the luxury and the joy of imagination. We arrive on Robinson's island years after he and his sole companion, a goat named Wilson, are shipwrecked. We find that the island has turned into a tourist destination centered around a lovable singing leopard, a tribe of natives known for their colorful coifs, Friday's Seaside Resort, and, of course, the legend of Robinson Crusoe. In flashback, his story comes to life beginning with the shipwreck which marooned he and Wilson on the island. The entire population of the island, including a herd of goats, an all-animal band, Friday and his family, and the inevitable hula-dancing chameleons, discover that our differences need not stand in the way of our friendships. All of the characters live happily and harmoniously ever after.
||The Princess and the Pea
Envision a kingdom of snow where the residents are Winter Wind Workers, Blizzard Bringers, Icicle Sharpeners, and Snow Smoothers, ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a Prince looking for a proper Princess to share the throne. Now imagine the Princess and her friend, the Pea, living in a kingdom of green rolling hills and running rivers with her subjects, the Flower Gardeners, River Runners, Green Shoot Growers, and Tree Barkers. Her parents, King Size and Queen Size, do all they can to keep things running smoothly. Who knows, maybe the dancing Dust Bunnies can help? Although the two kingdoms think they have nothing in common (except a pesky Jack Frost that freezes anything and everything), the peace-loving Leprechauns prove otherwise. Throw in some Phony Princesess and you have a real fiasco! This ain't your grandma's Princess and the Pea. We think you will enjoy its twists and turns.
