Publisher's Summary

Magical retellings of three classic fairy tales, read by Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan.

"Aladdin"

Aladdin is a tailor's son who dreams of making his fortune and marrying the Sultan's daughter, but is tricked into becoming apprentice to a cunning magician. He needs Aladdin to do a very special job - climb down into a deep, dark cave and fetch an oil lamp....

"The Elves and the Shoemaker"

The shoemaker can only afford the leather to make one more pair of shoes. He cuts the leather and lays it on his workbench - and the next morning, there are two perfectly-finished shoes! But who can have made them?

A poor peasant woman wishes for a child, but when a sorceress gives her a brown bulb, it grows a flower - and inside is tiny, perfect Thumbelina!

Dont be fooled by the cover!

A very short, very adapted version of Aladdin! our son was in the play recently and wanted to listen to the story. It was so short and chopped out huge chunks of the storyline! Not worth a credit or the cash!

Listened to it about 100 times.

I listen to this every night when I go to sleep, and Steven Mangan' s voice is just so perfect for the first story ,Aladdin. I've listened to it so many times I nearly memerized it!

very traditional sexist stories

I understand stories like this have been around for a long time, but they are very outdated and so terribly sexist. Women are just possessions. They are better versions.

A excellent selection of story’s for the short drive to school

Nice bit size stories that we enjoyed on the way to school.

Normally the girls are loud and noisy, but we’re quick to be quite so they could listen to the stories
