The Wolf Hour
Narrated by David de Vries; Thérèse Plummer / 8 hours 36 minutes
A girl. A wolf. A red cape. And . . . pigs? In the vein of A Tale Dark and Grimm, this gorgeously written, endlessly surprising retelling explores the stories and wildness that define us.
Welcome, my little lambs, to the Puszcza. It's an ancient forest, a keeper of the deepest magic, where even the darkest fairy tales are real.
Here, a Girl is not supposed to be a woodcutter. Or be brave enough to walk alone.
Here, a Wolf is not supposed to love to read. Or be curious enough to meet a human.
And here, a Story is nothing like the ones you read in books, for the Witch can make the most startling tales come alive. All she needs is a Girl from the village, a Wolf from the forest, and a woodcutter with a nice, sharp axe.
So take care, little lambs, if you step into these woods. For in the Puszcza, it is always as dark as the hour between night and dawn -- the time old folk call the Wolf Hour. If you lose your way here, you will be lost forever, your Story no longer your own.
You can bet your bones.
