Welcome to 1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales Audio Podcast!  This is a hand-picked collection of favorites from writers like Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. I narrate the stories and often add background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life. These are suitable for the entire family, enjoyed by all ages and levels of literary experience, and often make great discussion starters for students who are just getting exposed to literature. 

For all of you who love a good story, we hope you come back again and again, and please share our show with others!

In this classic tale from Hans Christian Anderson whcih has been adapted into ballet and theater, a boy receives a set of 25 tin soldiers, all cast from an old tin spoon, and lines them up on a tabletop. One soldier stands on a single leg, nevefr faltering, and falls in love with a paper ballerina. A series of events overtake the tin soldier before he can realize his dream, leaving us to wonder if fate controls our lives regardless of our actions, or if we must rise above our limitations and take control of our lives.
