Weird fruits, part one: the Durian. Then a manx tale from the Isle of Man involving wholesale theft of seagull eggs! Seriously, people are about to be put in jail over this. This week’s genre: Adventure/Mystery/Poetry.
“Twixt Life and Death” by Clucas Jouchin is from the 1905 anthology Fifty-Two Stories for Girls edited by Alfred H. Miles, and there is no doubt that this story is extremely appropriate for girls of all ages who dream of being a sleepwalker and really — really — don’t care for dogs. So curl up on your favorite coat and grab a drink while we read you this week’s tale.
