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?

"Thumbelina"

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!

Thumbelina: A classic story

The story of a tiny little woman as she goes on her adventures. I always love a happy ending. The speaker did a great job of taking on many characters. This was easy to listen to.

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!

Truly magical

I understand stories like this have been around for a long time, but they are very outdated and so terribly sexist.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.

Short and engaging children's audio book

Three short stories aimed at a younger listening audience. All three are well told by the respective narrators, and will be familiar to adult listeners, If you're expecting the Disney versions of these traditional tales though, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how different these original versions are. I recommend this audio for younger listeners.
