There is also a section at the back with some helpful tips and advice on sharing stories with crowds. Each story is accompanied by bright, colourful illustrations and this book is sure to be returned to again and again and again.

This awesome anthology contains 76 tremendous tales. All of the best-loved stories from the immensely popular The Lion Storyteller Bedtime Book and The Lion Storyteller Book of Animal Tales are collected here into one colourful volume. Accompanied by a new introduction giving advice on storytelling and reading aloud, and vibrant illustrations, this makes a fantastic anthology for story time.
