Synopsis

"This story takes place on a cold winters night, where a shadowy figure is seen taking to flight."

In a stylised Victorian London where one might easily come across Sherlock Holmes, Mary Poppins or even Jack the Ripper we are introduced to Spring Heeled Jack!

A tiny goblin with spring for legs who spends his nights smelling the cold night air for the distinctive odour of a naughty child fast asleep in bed. As soon as he catches the scent he’s away, springing across the frozen city until he arrives outside the right window - he's never seen, at least not by anyone who ever be able to speak again!

This dark fairytale is helped along with classic versed narration as the story bobs and weaves revealing a magical and dark fairytale world.
