Did you know that the Very Hungry Caterpillar was originally just a fat worm named Willi? Or that the author of Charlotte’s Web hatched real spiders on top of his dresser? In The Stories Behind the Stories, you’ll hear the incredible behind-the-scenes tales of twenty-nine beloved children’s classics. Discover the childhood inspiration behind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the original name of Curious George, the mysterious origin of Mother Goose, and what happened when Maurice Sendak told his editor he couldn’t draw wild horses (spoiler alert: he drew wild things instead). It’s a celebration of children’s literature, and you’re invited!
