Welcome to Magic Carpet Storytelling, all kids and inner kids are welcome, come and play!
My stories are for kids and the inner kid within us all. All stories are magic carpet stories. Stories can take you anywhere to anywhere in the universe. Storytelling takes you as far as your imagination will go.

My storytimes are based around books with elements of traditional storytelling. I am passionate about promoting children’s books and encouraging children to read for fun.
All the storytimes are interactive, in which ways depends on the children taking part. I use a range of props designed for children to help fuel their imagination, but also encourage children to act out parts of the stories, decide on details or choose what happens next from a range of adventures of options
Why is it called Magic Carpet Storytelling?
Ever since I started telling stories in the library I have encouraged listeners to come and join me on the Magic carpet. A place where stories can take you anywhere. Since then I have developed a number of stories based on books, folk tales and my own creation inviting the listener to take part in the stories in a story within a story creation.
