Winking Kat Tales is excited to bring this fun, farcical, comedy to life. Just like the magic pipe gives the Scarecrow life 'of a sort', P. Haines-Ainsworth and Terence Levitt have given new life to this satirical folktale from the master American storyteller, Washington Irving. Like most of his stories, "The Scarecrow" takes place in the mysterious Catskill Foothills of upstate New York. It's a perfect story for these cool and colorful autumn days. You can listen to "The Scarecrow" on your favorite podcast app or by clicking this link: CLICK HERE
Winking Kat Tales is proud to present this buggy new musical adaptation of the familiar fable of 'The Ant & The Grasshopper' set in bayou country. It's full of toe-tapping, jazz tunes and lilting ballads.
When Purrlie's friends tell her about the Milky Way, she decides to see it for herself - to see if it's made of milk. In her homemade rocket, Purrlie travels the solar system. Will she make it to the Milky Way? You'll have to listen to find out.
Inspired by a Bolivian folktale about a boy who dreams a different life than the one he seemed destined to live.
In the story, Arcani meets an unusual man - a healer who travels the world gathering plants to use as medicine to help others. He offers to teach Arcani about the plants and their uses, but the mayor of the town only sees Arcani as a poor & ignorant boy. In the end, Arcani has the opportunity to demonstrate his potential to become a healer & a respected member of the village.

We are working on that. We have been asked about it many times, but it is difficult to tell these stories without the fun songs and the music Terry writes for them. We hope to make them into animatics or, perhaps interactive e-books soon.
