Elemental - Imagined Worlds

Elemental has been created in response to the ever-decreasing opportunities many children have to play and grow up in natural environments and to listen to stories. Written versions of this story can be found in Eric Maddern's picture book 'Rainbow Bird' and Kevin Crossley Hollands, 'Young Oxford Book of Folk Tales'.


The Fairytale Tree - Imagined Worlds

This tale from Andalusia asks us all that binding question - Do we live a life that's safe, or do we take a risk for something precious. This story gives you a story to help pass those long hot summer nights, when mosquitos buzz and bite. On that island grows a magical tree, and cradled in its branches is a nest holding the story eggs. I first heard this story in Scotland but later discovered it was an old Chinese story.


Box of Foxes - Imagined Worlds

Chicken Licken's hasty mistake spells disaster for his feathered friends when Foxy promises them a short cut to find the King. People have been asking us for years to record our take on this Afro-American storytelling chant. You've heard of putting the fox amongst the chickens - well here's one rooster in a box of foxes. Horses, chickens, a hungry old woman and an alien all want a nibble of that gingerbread man.
