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.

  5. scarecrow78 says:

    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!

  9. Michaela Kent says:

    Please can you me know where I can purchase these story tellers . Listening to the stories are some of the happies memories from my child hood . I remember closing my eyes and being transported to these magical places .

  10. Eleanor says:

    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.

  11. shadowgirl says:

    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.

  12. Robert Brookes says:

    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.

  13. Robert Brookes says:

    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!

  14. cueplayproductions says:

    Thanks so much for posting these. My children love these as I once did. Totally heart warming.
    Quite a few more videos have been uploaded since this was published.
    Admin it’s worth an update.
    Thanks again

  15. frosty says:

    Can I have the Diggersaurs (2) read by Steven Pacey story which is found in Storyteller 2 part 21?

  16. Rob says:

    What Frosty said above! This story captivated me as a small child and had a dark, apocalyptic edge which distinguished it from many of the other stories we were exposed to in those days.

  17. Christopher Simpson says:

    I loved these books I remember my mum reading them to me when I was small, memories I will always treasure, thanks for bringing it back 🙂
