The Magic Shop by H G Wells
Manage episode 348610098 series 2799177
The Magic Shop by H G Wells was published in 1903. "The Magic Shop" is a fantasy short story about a little English boy named Gip who wanted his father to take him into a magic shop they found while walking. They don't know that what they're about to see in the magic shop will permanently change both of their lives.
A whimsical story on a similar theme to a previous story we read out on The Classic Ghost Stories Podcast: The Door In The Wall. H G Wells is saying that there is a world of magic and wonder that is always present and can be seen with those who have innocent and wondering eyes and hearts. But our ability to see it gets duller as we get tied up with the necessities of modern living and so we may miss our chance at wonder. A perfect bedtime story.
A sweet and lovely audiobook story with only a tiny bit of horror and not much sci fi (science fiction)
