Story Teller (Marshall Cavendish)

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

Synopses: ST2/Part 19

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Part 1)
Under the pen name Lewis Carroll, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote this delightful tale in 1865. It immediately caught the imagination of children and adults alike, and the magic has never faded. Jane Edmonds’ adaptation preserves all the charm and nonsensical wisdom of the orginal.

Wonder Wellies
From Harold Hyatt comes a story of flying saucers and leaping wellington boots.

Peter and the Mountainy Men
Folklorist Eric Maple tracked down this traditional European story of an ungenerous miller whose son befriended the “little people”.

The Treachery of Morgan
Danger threatens Arthur where he least expects it – from inside his own family.

Pat’s Piano
The story of a little girl and the old piano that sweetened her temper and her playing.

Danger in the Reeds
A vivid impression of the beauty –- and danger – that surround a pair of young trout. Written and illustrated by Rod Sutherby.

My Uncle Paul of Pimlico
Mervyn Peake’s zany poem was first published in Rhymes Without Reason by Methuen Children’s Books.
