This HATS FOR THE JIZOS, told with the aid of 16 kamishibai cards, which you find in  my store.  It was filmed on the balcony outside my apartment at Kasees Lodge and Apartments, which as you can see, commands a stunning view over the valley, facing the ski runs opposite.

During a delightful week in Thredbo, in the Snowy Mountains of Australia (July 2012) while my wife was skiing and my son snowboarding, I recorded three winter time tales (but I lost one I was in the midst of editing when my hard disk crashed!)


Is a lovely story from Czechoslovakia, which I tell with the help of some transforming pictures.  I really enjoyed telling this in the cozy warmth of Kasees Lounge, despite the occasional distraction of a guest wandering through, so the telling is more lesiurely (24 minutes) than if it was a live performance.

(I first told this on the Singapore Flyer, as part of their Christmas celebrations in 2010, when the story ran for just 10 minutes!)
