Bedtime Stories: The Story of Ciccu

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 Story of Ciccu from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang

Three brothers, of which Ciccu is the youngest. Dad dies, fairies visit and give gifts, Ciccu tricks brothers into giving him their gifts. He runs off, spends money unwisely, loses gifts, is nice to a stranger, gets job with the king. THe brothers retalliate andCiccu goes on hard quests. Eventually, he tricks king into killing himself, wins the fairest princess of all, and becomes king.

This fairy tale is Rated PG-13 . For trickery, death, woman beating and such. But they live happily ever after at least.
