Unfold



Every night at bedtime when my sisters and I were young my dad used to confabulate these amazingly convoluted and fantastical ongoing adventure sagas, most often involving an intrepid little girl thwarting the nefarious schemes of some mean monster or bad witch. Night after night we'd listen enraptured as the labyrinthine plots unfolded. Thanks Dad!
