Publisher's Summary

If children's tales are sometimes a little scary, it is because children need imagery to conjure and get rid of their fears in a symbolic, healthy way. Stories are all the more pleasurable if they add an element of horror; children are fascinated, as horror stories provide a healthy way of taking into account intense emotions and making sense of them.

This compilation includes folk tales, classic tales by Charles Perrault and Hans Christian Andersen, and stories from the "Arabian Nights". These stories all have in common the fact that they impress children in a healthy way, igniting the imagination and bringing healing emotions into light; but still, they are suitable for the youngest children, as their teachings are always brought up in a symbolic way.

This audiobook presents you with the most famous and inspiring stories, narrated in a warm and lively way:
  • Bluebeard;
  • Jack the Giant Killer;
  • The Three Little Pigs;
  • Little Red Riding Hood;
