Story Teller (Marshall Cavendish)

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

Story Teller 2


Following the huge success of Story Teller 1, Marshall Cavendish immediately followed it up with another 26-part collection in 1984. In the first issue, the editors promised:

“Every fortnight, Story Teller 2 will introduce a new cast of exciting and colourful characters to amuse and enthrall your children. Like the original collection, Story Teller 2 combines the value of a fully illustrated colour book with a high quality, 50-minute cassette sound recording which follows the stories word for word.

“Whether your child is old enough to read the book, or simply wants to listen to the tape and follow the pictures, Story Teller 2 will provide a lasting collection of stories from around the world … and countless hours of pleasure.”

    This site is fantastic! Brings back lots of childhood memories. …I’m quite angry I’m missing Storyteller book 1 (though I have the tape), yet own everything else. Typical. Occasionally I scour Ebay in the hopes someone is unwittingly trying to get rid of it so I can restore my collection to its 4 glory.

      Oh no I know how you feel. I have issue 1 but the cover is missing. Typical as it was my favourite.

    Oh thanks so much for this! All those wonderful childhood memories listening to these stories. I used to love Grogre the Golden Ogre, Seadna and the Devil and Stone Soup, to name but a few. Makes me want to get out onto ebay or amazon and buy a few of these now!

    Thank you so much for this! I have all the Storytellers and wanted to share with my daughter. I recently found the tapes all excited but alas they have deteriorated.

    Such a shame 3 really good stories don’t work on part 8. Always especially liked The Man Who Knew Better. Are there any up to date links to upload the full versions? Eternally grateful! I’m 40, grew up with Story Teller and now picking through this with my son.

    Ah I used to own the books and tapes, which I temporarily inherited from my Scottish cousins, but I returned them for one of them had a daughter so I thought it appropriate. Love it. I even had a Christmas book and tape, I would listen to a tape each night leading up to Christmas then listen to the Christmas one on Christmas eve. It was such a good time.

    I never had Storyteller 1, but I had the books and tapes of Storyteller 2. Unfortunately the 1st tape broke 😦 I’m listening to the Wizard of Oz on youtube. Also interesting fact: In a song for slug there is a repeating bit of music (oboe and bassoon) in it. A while ago I heard this music used in an episode of Spongebob, amazing that the sound clip has been used for so long!
