Nine Unlikely Tales

Read by Cori Samuel

(4.8 stars; 107 reviews)

Nine original and, yes, unlikely fairy-tales, which include stories of the arithmetic fairy, the king who became a charming villa-residence and the dreadful automatic nagging machine.

All are classic Nesbit: charming, novel and not afraid to squeeze in a moral or two -- told with proper fairy-tale style.

I have listened to this book at least 10 times and it still hasn't lost its charm! I have listened to most of E Nesbit's books and they're all amazing!!!!

My 9 year old and I both love these stories and the reader is fabulous. Check out “The Treasure Seekers” and subsequent stories if you haven’t, they are very cute as well.

How difficult to create a truly unique fairy tale...and Nesbit has done it nine times over. Great reading too.
