King George III loves bonfires! And he's sure to love this one especially, since it will send George the builder to build a house for his father in heaven. But George the butler is happy too, as this means Mrs George will need a new husband...

You'll need ears as sharp as a sparkler in this hilarious yet mysterious Epic Tale!

Based on the Tibetan  folk tale of "The Three Genjias", adapted by Chip Colquhoun. Read by David Ault (davidault.co.uk).
