The Horse Shoe

Read by Tony Addison

(1 stars; 1 reviews)

An hilarious telling in verse of the tale of St. Dunstan and the Devil, in which the Saint, angered by the Devil's mocking of his music-making, responds by shoeing Old Clootie forcibly which, despite the fact he has a hoof, causes him extreme pain. Thereafter every place that shows a horseshoe over its door is safe from the doings of the Devil. Brilliantly lively illustrations by Cruickshank for those who follow the link to the text. - Summary by Tony Addison (0 hr 42 min)
