A Tribute to the Collection of the World's Best Children's Stories Published by Marshall Cavendish
The purpose of this section is to collect all manner of articles about Story Teller. Ultimately, I’d like to see articles here specially written by Story Teller fans all over the world and writers, readers and maybe illustrators who worked on the Story Teller partwork itself.
So if you would like to share your musings on Story Teller, please drop me a line. Meanwhile, here are our initial offerings …

When I first had internet access in the early 1990s, one of the first things I tried to do was get information on Story Teller.
