1.  “The Caster’s Secret”
from the
by Thistle by Thimble Audio Story Series

In an age when trades were passed on exclusively from fathers to sons, a famous plaster caster teaches everything he knows to his daughter. As he gets older and less able to work, his daughter secretly takes on more and more work.  After her father dies, a Duke’s son arrives at the workshop’s door with a very lucrative opportunity. The caster’s daughter is faced with a difficult decision: tell the Duke’s son the truth, or pretend like her father is still alive and take the job.

NOTE: This is one of Lisabeth’s all-time favorite stories!  Be sure to listen along with your children!
