The Louse and the Flea

This tale from the ancient Sanskrit collection, The Panchatantra, was recorded in February 2013 at the Gostner Theater in Nuremberg. As you can probably guess, Green Line is the name of a widely-used English textbook.


The Panchatantra was written around 2,500 years ago.

I tell it on the CD The Well of the World's End and other Tales.
