Follow Tim’s folk trail around the globe to visit a bullied South American crab, an Egyptian monk who can’t seem to get rid of a basket of grapes, and a Japanese lord who will do whatever it takes to save his people. This show encourages children to see how much better the world would be if generosity, kindness, and self-sacrifice were the first reaction to every situation.
