We Tell Stories

Story-telling is one of the oldest professions in the world, but Penguin has brought it bang up to date with this interactive website.

Here they offer six stories that unfold over six weeks in various unusual formats.

For example Slice takes the form of two blogs, from the perspective of a young girl and her parents, and The 21 Steps follows the journey of the author on Google Maps.

I'm not going to spoil the plot for you by talking about the stories, just pop along and immerse yourself in the authors' worlds for a few minutes and you'll soon understand a lot more about it.

There's information about the stories, the authors and the classic fairy tales their works pay homage to in the panel across the bottom.
