Grades K-5, audience 300-400, Length: 45 min. These stories deal with gossiping and bullying. Wolfie Locks, is introduced by reminding children of some of the lies that have been told about the "big, bad wolf"ť and how these led to his being mistreated in such classics as "Peter and the Wolf"ť. The presentation weaves a little of the "Three Little Pigs"ť, "Red Riding Hood"ť, and even the "Three Bears" into the story. In my re-telling of the classic story, The Ugly Duckling, the music brings the feelings of the little duckling to life. Children become very involved as the music and story express his struggle to find his place in the world.
