In news that will excite parents and carers all over the country, LiSTNR has published Storytime with Fifi Box, the audio adaptations of Fifi’s two hugely popular children's books - Minty Mae Gray and The Strangely Good Day (illustrated by Freda Chiu) and Posey Pearl is a Curious Girl (illustrated by Adam Ming).

 

Published today, 20 March, to align with World Storytelling Day, Storytime with Fifi Box, is narrated by Fifi and offers kids a special one-to-one audio experience with the celebrated radio and television star. Filmed vision of Fifi in the studio, stills and audio grabs here

 

Brought to life in colourful sound design, Fifi invites children into the magical worlds of two curious and courageous girls – Minty Mae Gray and Posey Pearl – as they each learn to recognise and celebrate all the things that make them, and the people around them, unique and special. Through these playful and thoughtful narratives, kids are encouraged to feel conformable in their own skin, celebrate their differences, and to be full of love as they explore their feelings.

 

Fifi said she decided to work with LiSTNR to create the audio adaptations so the books could be experienced in a new way, and in new places, with friends and parents.

 

“Let me tell you, morning radio is EASY compared to entertaining your kids when they are having BIG feelings. Like on the school run? Or bedtime! If you can relate, then try Storytime with Fifi Box. The stories will take the little ones away on new adventures through the eyes and hearts of Minty Mae Gray and Posey Pearl, bring new perspectives to their important moments, and encourage them to be curious, courageous and to let their own sparkles shine bright,” said Fifi.

 

“It was such a delight recording these books and I hope parents and carers also have time to listen with their kids, because shared stories and experiences are so much better!”

ABOUT Minty Mae Gray and the Strangely Good Day

Minty Mae Gray is having a very bad day. A girl in her class said something mean about how she looks, and poor Minty is crushed. But just as she’s sinking into the depths of despair, something odd happens … the unicorn picture on Minty’s wall COMES TO LIFE! Led by her lovable, pink-spotted unicorn friend, Minty sets off on a magical journey through some of history’s greatest works of art. As she meets the subjects of these great paintings, and the artists behind them, Minty comes to realise that true beauty comes from the inside, and that she’s perfect just the way she is.

 

ABOUT Posey Pearl is a Curious Girl

Posey Pearl is a Curious Girl is a rhyming picture book about how families can be different but still be full of love, exploring feelings that children can have about their families and how they may be different from others. When Posey Pearl hears a strange song coming from afar in her little town, she thinks, just maybe, it's someone who needs a home. But what she finds at the end of her journey - and along the way - is quite unexpected!
