For instance, tale 10 "The Pack of Ragmuffins" is sometimes called the "The Pack of Scoundrels".

Week 1 (March 1 -8)
1. "The Frog King"
2. "Cat in Mouse in Partnership"
3. "Our Lady's Child"
4. "The Story of the You who went forth to learn Fear"
5. "The Wolf and the Seven Kids"
6. Faithful John
7. THe Good Bargain

It really didn't. I think for classic reads we need to pick shorter books. Or just do a couple tales a month.
