Helping primary teachers to develop the knowledge and skills to improve their storytelling, this book is written by a professional storyteller.

The author shows the reader how to create the plot and characters, how to enhance presentation techniques including voice, expression and movement and how to develop these skills in young people. The stories in the book provide the vehicle for teachers to practise their new skills and give them the confidence to develop their own stories.

Topics covered in the stories include bullying, disabilities, computer games, friendship and greed.

All those interested in reviving, exploring and developing the oral tradition of storytelling for adults and young people will find this book inspirational.
