Juliet McMaster reads Jane Austen’s story “The Beautifull Cassandra” to a group of children in this video on the University of Alberta Faculty of Arts website.  McMaster’s beautifully illustrated edition of the story, in which she imagines Cassandra and the other characters as mice, is an excellent book to use when introducing children to Jane Austen.  I mentioned it last year in a post on Sheree Fitch’s book Mabel Murple.  Many thanks to the reader of my blog who called my attention to this video.
