The Cat is the wildest Animal in the Wild Wet Woods. But when he sees the Man and Woman living in a warm, dry cave, he starts thinking about how he can join them…

A fresh, new retelling of the classic Just So Story. The author, Rudyard Kipling, also wrote the Jungle Book over a hundred years ago. The Cat that Walked by Himself has been re-written, illustrated and told by award – winning British children’s author and illustrator, Shoo Rayner, to bring it up to date with more modern ideas, language and idioms while keeping all the essential fun, language and playfulness of the original.

The Elephant’s Child – Story Reading

Here is another Just So Story by Rudyard Kipling, that I rewrote a little bit, to freshen it up and bring the language up to date. It’s a classic story and so fun to read and listen to. I can still hear Miss Sherbourne reading it to me in Class 2 when I was seven!

New Story Channel

I have started my new Story Channel – Learn English Through Story and have just uploaded the first video actually made for the channel.

Please see the new channel, subscribe and watch some videos – I need to get to 1000 subscribers and 10,000 hrs watched to get a proper channel link.

It’s a Viking Vik Story – Freya has challenged Vik and Wulf to a contest. They have to eat the most disgusting things she can find. But will Wulf eat his fill fairly and squarely, and will Vik triumph in the end?

Viking Vik stories are written for newly confident readers, with high story interest and easy text. Follow along with the story as I read the story.
