This week is National Storytelling Week.

It’s a week running from 27 January – 3 February, and celebrates the tradition of “oral storytelling, the very first way of communicating life experiences and the creative imagination.”

And we’re all about unleashing creativity and creative imagination!

It’s a bit tricky to write about oral story telling – but maybe we’ll do a Facebook Live sharing our favourite stories…

Until then, here are our 6 favourite illustrations from literature…
