The Epic Storytime Podcast is back! Be the first to hear the full stories begun each week at epictales.co.uk – read by fabulous voice actors from across the Interweb.
Since 13th September is Roald Dahl Day, we're celebrating the iconic children's author with a folk tale from his home town of Great Missenden! Dahl was almost certainly aware of the deliciously horrid "hero" of this tale; maybe she will inspire the creativity of your children as much as she inspired him?
This story is adapted from a European folk tale by Chip Colquhoun, and read by David Ault (davidault.co.uk).
Illustrated by Erica Terry-Rose.
We're proud to have produced these podcasts completely free for the benefit of schools and homelearning families since the start of the first UK lockdown. However, like many businesses, Epic is now struggling to survive this pandemic.
