Story Teller (Marshall Cavendish)

A Tribute to the Collection of the World's Best Children's Stories Published by Marshall Cavendish

Synopses: ST2/Part 12

Box of Robbers
Frank Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz, wrote other delightful stories for children. Here is one of them, about a little girl whose curiosity almost starts a crime wave in the attic!

The Challenging Bull
This warning to bullying, bragging bulls first appeared in The Anita Hewett Animal Story Book, and is published here by kind permission of The Bodley Head.

Barney’s Winter Present
Barney is a stoat … at least he thinks he is. Could the winter snowfall have something to do with the change in Barney?

Toad of Toad Hall (Part 3)
Never has fate brought proud and popular Toad so low! But in order to escape from prison, even Toad is prepared to swallow his pride. Richard Hook’s illustrations are delightfully faithful to the spirit of Kenneth Grahame’s book.

Minnie the Floating Witch
One hot summer’s day, the clouds are floating past in the sky. And they are not all that’s floating!

Grogre the Golden Ogre (Part 2)
Grogre and Bogre meet a baby Slurm and go riding along a great river of fire.

An Eskimo Baby
Have you ever thought what it is like to be very young in the frozen lands of the Arctic? Lucy Diamond’s poem ponders the advantages and drawbacks.
