Snail Tales Vol 1
Children’s stories told by David Guthrie
David Guthrie is a professional storyteller living in Auckland, New Zealand where he performs and tells stories under the name of David Storyweaver.
The origin of the tales lies with the bedtime stories he told his own children nightly. They were improvised even as they were told, new stories being invented every night, and not just one per night but often many, with the children joining in to weave their own stories. They were all about the adventures of three snails, called Inc and Onc and xx**!!## (no one has yet come up with the correct spelling—you might like to try). None of the stories have ever, to this point, been written down, and every telling, even of the favourites (such as featured on this disc), is never the same twice over.
Now these snail stories are weaving their major with new generations and proving to appeal across an extraordinary range of ages, from pre-school to teenage—even one or two adults have owned to enjoying them. Children are held spellbound by them.
“White Rabbit” is the character soft toy animal that accompanies David on all his storytelling events and has become the mascot and emblem for his storytelling and the recording label he has established.
David Storyweaver’s website is www.whiterabbit.net.nz and you can find him on Facebook pages as “David Storyweaver”. Become a fan and spread the word!
Look out for more Snail Tales in the future.
