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!

Sweet stories sweetly told.

Although there are differences in ease of the stories from those I have heard before they have been told so well and the characters played so nicely I can only approve and will play these to my grandchildren!

***My grand daughter said it's really good***

My grand daughter she is 9 and she loves this book, she has problems listening at school so I decided to download some children's book and thank the Gods it's working. She remember details from the book she tells me what's going on so I'm very happy it might be worth mentioning to her teacher that audiobook works for her. Thanks audible for providing this format of learning.

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!
