Free Odds Bodkin Story: A T-Rex Adventure for Kids

ENTER A WORLD OF LOVABLE DINOSAURS

Little Proto the Protoceratops knows his baby sister is on the way, and he feels left out by his parents. All they talk about is when she’ll hatch. And even though there’s a gigantic but convalescent T-Rex in the Sea Forest nearby, Proto isn’t worried about King Geoffrey the One Eye. After all, he’s helped to get the starving Rex some food. No, Proto is just feeling left out. Little does he know he’s about to be captured by a Pteranodon and flown far, far away.

Enjoy the opening 20 minutes of Odds Bodkin’s original musical story for kids, Little Proto’s T-Rex Adventure. 12-string guitar music, engaging character voices, vocal effects and clever dialog bring this dinosaur adventure to life.  The entire feature length tale is 70 minutes. It’s the second episode of The Little Proto Trilogy.

Tale of the Kittens from SHE’S CLEVER, THAT ONE: Fairy Tales for Smart Girls with Odds Bodkin

It’s not easy living with a lazy sister and an imperious mother.

Since Marie is the only daughter willing to do the work, and her sister won’t lift a finger, it’s Marie who ends up doing everything. Hanging out the laundry. Sweeping off the front porch. Weeding the garden. Washing the dishes.

But because Marie does these things, and because she’s courageous and curious, it’s she who discovers the world of kittens beneath the giant cauliflower on the hill.

It’s she who hears the catchy song.

And it’s she who is given the beautiful gifts.


Come listen, watch and enjoy The Tale of the Kittens, one of four fairy tales for smart girls that Odds Bodkin will perform this coming Sunday, March 7th at 5 pm EST on Zoom. These stories are appropriate for all ages. Music on 12-string guitars and Celtic harp. Plus lots of silly voices.

Tickets: $25 per screen
