Regular visitors will have noticed that we’ve revamped the site. The main innovation comes in the form of the sidebar boxes which is now “contextual.” For example, if you are browsing our stories about Bertie you will see a Bertie icon, a brief description of his stories , and his latest stories (most recent at the top). We also supply a link so that you can browse the stories in order of publication (earliest first). The same goes for all our categories – Katie the Witch, Hans Christian Andersen, Greek Myths, etc.
The aim is to improve site navigation, and to help you find your way around our various series of stories. You can also browse these category “boxes” in the archive sections. The links to the archives are now horizontally across the top of the site.
We hope that the icons are giving our characters a better visual representation, and the brief descriptions will help new visitors.
Our “offers” or ads are now top left, in the hope that we will improve our click through rate with casual visitors who arrive here by accident. Each click is another penny in the box.

I like very much your stories, because I can acquire a good skill in listening. This is a good method to learn deeply. Every day I listen to a story many times and so I can absorbe your language.

HELLO I LIKE THIS

I play many of these stories for children in my school ages 3 to 5 years. Please label if there is killing or other violence in any story. Also indicate if there is detailed description of the violence. For example to say that the wolf “ate her up” is not very graphic, however as in Ali Baba and the forty thieves – a man is cut into quarters and then later sewed together. Pretty gruesome and shocking. I’m not sure you can categorize these stories by age – but rather I would like to know if there is killing or violence in advance.

Dear Maria, Alibaba is a story we did some years ago. We used an old text. These days we rewrite everything ourselves. We are about to embark on redoing the Arabian Nights, although it is difficult to adapt because the original is full of quite grown up themes. From what I recall, the language of this story is pretty dense. I would be very surprised if children aged 3 to 5 years old could get very far with it. We do provide the texts. You can see for yourself if you think they are appropriate without having to play them.
