Album Notes
"Hey! I know you! You came to my school and told that story! Remember me?" Kids say this to Priscilla all the time (and she loves it). When she tells stories, kids remember for years to come. This CD was recorded live at an elementary school, so you'll hear comments, cheers and giggles in the background.

"Chickens!" is almost an hour of ridiculous (and a few very slightly scary) stories, some of Priscilla's faves. Her first CD, "The Ghost With the One Black Eye" is just as ridiculous, and has even more stories. Both are great for kids age 4-10 (yup, it's a wide age range, but it works).

Her background? Priscilla has been telling stories all her life, and has called herself a storyteller since 1988. In 1993, she quit her job as a children's librarian and became a full-time storyteller in Lawrence, Kansas.

She travels all over the country and has performed in Europe as well--in French and Bulgarian as well as in English.

She tells at schools, libraries, festivals and coffeehouses (also juvenile detention halls, house concerts, conferences, you name it).

She has given workshops at the National Storytelling Conference (1997, 2001, 2003) and performed at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN, at the Exchange Place in October 2001.

Here are some of the comments on her performances:

"...When you told stories there was this feeling inside of me that made me feel like I was having a great dream." --student at Grant School, Lawrence KS

"Tell it again!"--countless students over the years

"Encore une histoire!"--countless Belgian students
