Welcome to our brand new website!

We are still in the process of transition. Some links are still to be tested, and some developer “placeholder” content is yet to be replaced. If anything doesn’t look or work as you’d expect, please contact us.

Find, enjoy, and share stories you'll love

If you love stories, then you've come to

THE RIGHT PLACE!

The Epic Story Circle is the home of Chip & Korky’s Cracklin’ Caperswonderful tales from around the world, told by Chip from the Oxford Owl and illustrated by the award-winning Korky Paul (Winnie & Wilbur, The Dog That Dug) and friends!

It’s also the home of the Epic Learning Podcast – in which teachers share lesson ideas based on each story, covering the entire curriculum – numeracy, science, and even PE!

If you want to enjoy 2 new and complete illustrated stories every month, use these stories to increase children’s attainment, confidence, and well-being, or both, you’ll find everything you need right here. 😊
