At Coram Beanstalk we believe you're never too young or too old, to enjoy listening to a story and to benefit from doing so. 

So, to celebrate Tell a Fairy Tale Day, we asked some of our children's author friends to tell us their favourite fairy tales. 

Take a seat, open your ears and let Abi Elphinstone, Pippa Goodhart, Marianne McShane and Claire Fayers whisk you away to magical lands of adventure, fantasy and legend...

Pippa Goodhart tells the English fairy tale of Tom Thumb

Abi Elphinstone tells the Scottish fairy tale of The Dragon Stoorworm

Claire Fayers tells the Welsh fairy tale of Dic Spot and the Goblin

Marianne McShane tells the Irish fairy tale of Niamh of the Golden Hair
