Odds Bodkin performs three Thanksgiving Stories with character voices, sound effects and music on Celtic harp,
African thumb piano and 12-string guitar. For all ages.

• A poor Swedish farmer inherits a farm that has not produced food for one hundred years. Why is it so unlucky? Why
won’t crops grow? The good farmer doesn’t discover his farm’s secret until he meets a curious being who lives beneath
his cowshed.

• Kaddo discovers how to grow more millet than anyone in his village. Keeping the secret to himself, he amasses enough
to build a wall of millet around his house and refuses to share with his fellow villagers. Will he let greed overcome him?

• Marie, a brave and curious little girl, goes into the garden in search of chicory at her mother’s request. Instead, she
finds a giant cauliflower with a ladder beneath it that leads down into the earth. At the bottom, she discovers a
magical world of kittens harvesting their garden. And so the tale begins, one filled with audience questions about delicious vegetables, laughter and song.
