DISCOVERING FORGOTTEN INTERNATIONAL FAIRY TALES
Magical Storybook's English Nanny Bedtime Stories podcast was launched in January 2020 by author and former BBC journalist, Rehannah Mian. She searches the archives for long-forgotten medieval fairy tales from around the world, and brings them back to life for people to hear again.
Her passion for medieval and Tudor history led to her discovering many forgotten historical people of colour - scientists, folklore heroes, and 'influencers' of their day, so she now writes stories about them, celebrating their lives, and showing children around the world that heroes can look like them.
Mia and the Curse of Camelot is the first of her children's novels, and centres around forgotten African folklore hero, Sir Morien - King Arthur's strongest knight.
It is Magical Storybook's mission to ensure that every child in the world enjoys the happiness and escapism of hearing fairy tales from their country. No child should ever miss out on a bedtime story because of financial barriers.
