See your children grow their confidence, communication & cleverness as Epic Explorers!

Since 2007 we've had parents and children telling us our storytelling is their favourite: always interesting, always inspiring, always HUGE fun!

We want to make it easy for you to find a never-ending pot of great stories told in a way you know your children will love.

That's why Epic Explorers get 2 new stories every month to watch, hear, or read together at any time, plus 2 bonus stories to watch.

Limiting screen time? Enjoy every story as a complete audio book, or choose our printed editions to have the stories delivered through your letterbox every month!

Build critical thinking & confidence: Each story includes an Epic Challenge to spark creative young minds – and if you share your creations with us, you could get a personal message from one of our storytellers! How's that for a confidence boost?

Meet your storytellers! You'll get free invites to live storytelling events, giving you the chance to meet the Oxford Owl storyteller Chip, and Winnie the Witch's illustrator Korky Paul!

And it all costs less than adding a tin of chocolates to your monthly shop. Choose this adventure today!
