    For children aged 6+ and story lovers of all ages.

  • Synopsis

    King Levi says that stories make your brain go fuzzy and your hands turn green. All stories are banned in the Kingdom of Levitas. It’s Susie and Shredder’s job to enforce the King’s law, shredding stories from dusk ‘til dawn.* But today, Susie will read a story for the very first time. Perhaps stories aren’t so scary after all.
