Lady and the Lion
Audience: K - 3rd Grade
A retelling of Grimm's fairy tale 'The Singing, Springing Lark,' which combines 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'East of the Sun, West of the Moon.' A merchant's daughter keeps her father's promise and goes to live with a lion, finding a bewitched prince. Next he is changed into a dove and she follows him for 7 years, then joins forces with him to defeat the enchantress once and for all. Lush paintings set this fairy tale in a medieval world full of blooming gardens and mythical beasts.
