A Treasury of Goodnight Stories

A Treasury of Goodnight Stories (ISBN: 0863079539) is another mammoth compilation of stories from Story Teller. Like My Big Book of Fairy Tales, A Treasury contains the same text and artwork from Story Teller. Published in 1988, A Treasury is even bigger than My Book of Fairy Tales with 410 pages and 81 stories in total.

While My Big Book of Fairy Tales featured traditional and classic stories, A Treasury of Goodnight Stories boasted a lot of the original stories specially written for Story Teller. These include the iconic Timbertwig and Grogre the Ogre stories, as well as the cartoon serials like Rumbles in the Jungles and Robbie’s Magic Go-Kart.

    So glad that i found this! Used to have a copy when I was young but mom gave it away as we grew up. Been looking for it but have no info whatsoever other than that it has The Magic Porridge Pot story (which is what led me here!). At least now I have all the info!
