KPE Episode 238: "Tall Tale" by Chris Bell

Ala and Reina from Room 15 have been reading "Tall Tale" and bring us this latest podcast. They tell us what happens when two kids are forced to be penpals by their teachers and make up a whole series of tall tales in order to make their letters to each other sound more exciting. It sounds like a fun read.


  1. Hi girls,
    I read this story too and thought it had a really good message! How long did it take you to realise as you were reading that they were both telling 'Tall Tales'?
    I think the pet Chimp was a bit of a stretch of the imagination!
    I'm looking forward to your next Korero - well done.

  2. Hi Mrs Nua,

    Thank you very, very much for leaving Reina and me a comment on our podcast. Thank you! And Mrs Nua.... It did take a while till we had found out that they were BOTH telling " Tall Tales " . I thought that it was pretty funny how you had said ' I think the pet Chimp was a bit of a stretch of imagination!' Once again thank you for leaving me a comment!

    Yours Truly, Ala
