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!

Omg loved this so much

Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan - only in my wildest dreams would I have thought these two would record a kids stories audio book together. So well done you can see the acting talent shining through in the readings. Love them both, thanks so much for making this audio book!
