Bedtime Stories: The Golden Lion


I love reading to my kids. I know some parents do not have the time to read to their children, or have problems reading. So I am offering bedtime stories, all for free.

This story is The Golden Lion from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang

This story is about three Brothers who decide one by one to venture out into the world. The eldest finds a city where the king is offering his daughter’s hand in marriage, if the suitor can find her. The catch? If they can’t find her after 8 days, they get their head chopped off. Well, the first two borthers get their heads cut off, but the youngest meets an old woman who decides to help him and hides him in a Golden Lion. Will he find the princess? Will he gain her hand in marriage?

This fairy tale is Rated PG. There are several heads chopped off.
