7. The Wolf And The Seven Little Kids

This week on Grimm Reading we meet our first Big Bad Wolf in 'The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids'.

A mother goat inexplicably leaves her seven kids all alone at home. Can her peculiarly specific survival advice keep the wolf from the door, literally?

Find out what bakers get up to with left over dough, an unexpected use for chalk and learn why miller's are so cowardly. 

We also discuss the similarities with this story and it's cousin across the channel, The Three Little Pigs, and in a final twist we consider whether or not the wolf is really so bad after all.



Theme music: Bicycle Waltz by Goodbye Kumiko

Other Music: ohannes Brahms's 16 Waltzes, Op.39, No 14 performed by Martha Goldstein
