Storyteller: Gobbolino the Witch's Cat

Gobbolino is the story I remember most from my childhood. Like, if you don't like this, you may as well just unfriend me now, that is how much I love this story. This version is shortened and adapted from Ursula Moray William's novel, which I only read years later when I was in charge of ordering books for the children's bookshop I worked in before my current job.

Also, I have figured out, I think, how to embed the audio files for these stories; I'll go back and do the old ones over the next little while. I would really, really appreciate you guys letting me know if A) it works, and B) you prefer it with or without audio.

Gobbolino is in four parts.

Storyteller: The Selfish Giant

Back from my holidays and back to posting. Sad ending and Christian-centric, this one. I wasn't going to include it because I thought it was well known, but I guess I'm biased.

Storyteller: First Flight

I almost didn't include this story. It's always upset me, a little bit. But I promised myself when I started this that I'd do all the stories, barring the ones everyone knows already. So, here it is.

Storyteller: The Creation of Man

Please note, this story contains a reference to Red Indians. I haven't edited, because I'm trying to keep these stories intact as they were written in the eighties, but be aware it's there.
