Graham’s collection of traditional tales are a mixture of the familiar and the less well known and could form an exciting part of your literacy, arts and history curriculum. Children will remember a visit by Graham for a long time and it will help teachers motivate their pupils in the study of language.


The traditional tales told to children in England come from a rich mix of world wide stories. Many are derived from the collections written down and published by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Anderson and others, which became popular over a hundred years ago. These formed the bulk of an oral tradition and are now what many remember as tradition tales although, of course, many of these stories have their roots outside teh British Isles.
