Rank #1: THE STORYTELLER by SAKI

Podcast cover
Read more
In "The Storyteller" by Saki, three children and their aunt are traveling by train while she attempts, without much success, to capture their attention with a story.  The only other person in the compartment is a bachelor, who is becoming mildly irritated with the children's impatience at her inability to keep their attention, and he offers to tell them a story. At first affronted, she takes him to task, and he takes her whitewashed morality tales and delivers more of a Brothers Grimm version. As you can expect, the children are spellbound, but the Aunt-you'll want to find out.
