Using humorous and colourful characterisation, Cat's Grin brings to life many of Aesop's wise and foolish creatures.

Duration: 70 minutes

With their simple morals, based on universal truths, these tales have formed an essential part of childhood lore for over 2000 years.

Young Aesop lives on the edge of a big forest that is home to an assorted collection of animals. Each Animal has an important lesson to learn, not only featuring in his or her own cautionary tale, but appearing in other fables too. This "near soap-opera" approach makes the animals' characters more rounded, allowing a young audience a clearer appreciation of the human frailties depicted.

The twelve stories are:

  • The Camel and the Monkey
  • The Hare and the Tortoise
  • The Fox and the Stork
  • The Dog in a Manger
  • The Wind and the Sun
  • The Boy who Cried "Wolf!"
  • Look Before You Leap
  • The Lion and the Mouse
  • Honesty is the Best Policy
  • One Good Turn Deserves Another
  • A Burden Shared is a Burden no Longer
  • How The Tortoise got its Shell
