A sickly boy is living a gloomy existence, coddled and constricted by his guardian aunt who doesn't like him. His only escape from misery is through his imagination and the friends he keeps in the garden shed - a hen and the terrifying polecat-ferret he has created his own religion around. This audiobook narration of the classic Saki tale "Sredni Vashtar" comes to life with sound effects and music.
