Eric Maddern

Maddern studied sociology and psychology at Sheffield University, then spent ten years travelling around the world. He now performs all over the country as a storyteller and folk singer, and he has built a roundhouse in the grounds of his home in Wales, where he holds storytelling events.

Nail Soup

A traveler in the forest stops at a lonely cottage, hoping to beg a bed for the night. The scowling woman who answers the door agrees to let him sleep on the floor, but declares she hasn't a bit of food in the house. "In that case," says the traveler, "I'll have to share what I've got with you." And with that, he takes a rusty old nail from his pocket and starts to make nail soup! It just needs a little something . . . This wonderfully illustrated retelling is a witty reminder that more bees are caught with honey than vinegar.
