Meanwhile, a wily Frogherd makes false accusations against a wolf who definitely does not eat frogs. But what, or possibly whom, might the wolf eat instead?
Improvised Saturday, December 21 at Bank Street Bookstore. Camera by Nere Kapitani.
Featuring excerpts from these tattered tales: Little Red Riding Hood Man, The Tortoise and The Hare and The Little Whale That Could.

Special guests, author Amy Fabrikant and illustrator Jennifer Levine, perform a puppet version of “When Kayla Was Kyle”, a picture book about a girl who used to be a boy.
In the introduction, children create a puppet named Heehoo, and then Heehoo performs as the country cousin in an improvisational parody of “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.”
Later on Heehoo and Amy have a conversation about being different.
With Andy Laties and Rebecca Migdal of Yippee Skippy Puppet Theater. December 8, 2013
