This 15-minute program dramatizing classic novels for children starred John Griggs as the storyteller, doing all the voices in each story. In the early episodes he appeared ad "Roger Elliott," but he used his own name later in the run. The later shows were more fully dramatized. The announcer was Georg Hogan.
