With the help of the immortals, Claus settles into human life in the Laughing Valley. And as he enters into manhood, he creates one of his most famous inventions: toys.  L. Frank Baum, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

This marks the 500th episode of The Classic Tales Podcast. Since we began back in 2007, we have visited the worlds of Tom Sawyer, Frankenstein, Edgar Allan Poe, The Arabian Nights, and many others. We have also delved into the wonders of the short story with O. Henry, Guy de Maupassant, H.G. Wells and more. But some of my favorite episodes are the ones that are, to me at least, the lesser-known tales. We’ve been able to explore the ancient roman world of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, the complex fantasy of Ambrose Bierce’s The Monk and the Hangmans’ Daughter, and the dashing adventures of Arséne Lupin just to name a few. So here’s to 500 episodes, and here’s to 500 more.
