A thoroughly unpleasant lord and lady spend their time tormenting their servants and decimating the wild-life both within and without their castle grounds. I is no surprise then that their jubilee gifts to one another --- a crocodile-skin handbag and a bear fur cape --- should exact such bloody revenge and transform their charnel house home into an animal sanctuary. Ruth Brown excels in creating a melodramatic atmosphere in her pictures. Here the medieval horrors are powerfully evoked and suitably spine-chilling for this 'grizzly' tale told in rhyming couplets which reads aloud very well. Strong stuff --- not for the faint hearted.
