Arthur Gives Back his Sword
In one final, terrible battle, Arthur fights all his remaining enemies. It is time for Excalibur to be returned to the Lady of the Lake. Story Teller’s version of the Arthurian legends follows in the footsteps of Malory, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Edmund Spenser.

Butterflies on the Moon
A genttle, Slavic tale from an author (Harold Hyatt) already popular with readers of Story Teller for his comic, knockabout style.

Ginger’s Secret Weapons
Peter Wingham both wrote and illustrated this light-hearted science fiction story about an eventful trip to school.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Part 2)
Alice finds herself bewildered in Lewis Carroll’s world of dreamlike fantasy. Growing and shrinking at every turn, she discovers the White Rabbit’s house and comes face to face with a most unusual caterpillar.

A Great Escape
Geraldine McCaughrean’s story is set in a prehistoric landscape full of danger. But common peril unites the fiercest of enemies.

The Miller and his Donkey
Aesop’ cautionary fable warns against trying to please all the people all of the time.

Sheep-Dog
A delightful rhythimical poem by Geraldine Jones about a crazy, mixed-up dog.
