Bedtime Story: Adventure 2016

written/read/recorded when kids were 8 and 5 years old

There's trouble in town. The starlings have left the old pier, pigeons almost killed a squirrel in James' garden, and the king under the fort is not happy. He's actually quite grumpy. And hungry. It turns out that these events are related, and now the Green Hands Gang find themselves in the middle of a mad pigeon's plan for supremacy.

This is a 24 chapter adventure story for children, with one chapter read each night of December 2016 up until Christmas. Each night the narration was recorded and published as an episode in the podcast.
