Five stories are by established childrens authors: Joan Aiken, Helen Cresswell, Joan Eadington, Dick King Smith and Robert Leeson; and four are by write/performers: Rory McGrath, Tony Robinson, Trevor and Simon and Nick Wilton.
The collection includes stories to read aloud, stories to read alone, new tales about old favourites suck as Lizzie Dripping and Arabel and Mortimer, funny stories, moving stories, extremely strange stories.
Delightfully illustrated by regular Jackanory artists, Silver Jackanory is storytelling at its very best!
