Sedna; Skeleton Story

for adults and children aged 7 and over

PLEASE NOTE This webpage supersedes any previous mentions of Skeleton stories

A fairy tale of the northern nights, spanning the realms of land, air, ocean and invisibility. Sedna's childhood longing to be special, leads to a terrible, stinking nest and a tragic drowning. Now she must trade power for trust if she is to ever find peace in her heart.
