Sound the war-croak, sharpen every claw – the frogs and mice are going to war! A tragedy has struck Bread Nibbler, king of the mice, and everyone knows who's to blame: the frogs. Now a battle is coming to the pond and it's time to pick a side: will you fight for the frogs or the mice? Originally told as an introduction to epic poetry for the children of Ancient Greece, join us as our storytellers guide you through an interactive adaptation of this tale, using traditional storytelling, improvised music and toy box puppetry.
