The theme of the next few posts are Tales.
Today’s writing prompt is: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?
I don’t want to be corny and say the Little Mermaid, Snow White, or Cinderella. I had to look up a list of fairy tales to refresh my memory . A few I remember , The Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina, Hansel and Gretel , Rumpelstiltskin( not to be confused with the character on Once Upon a Time, a show I love. He also played Belle’s Beast, and Captain Hook’s Crocodile.)
Also A Christmas Carol was on the fairy tale list. A story I love. A movie I watch every year around Christmas. I love the characters in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland but not much of the story. While the Princess and the Pea and Thumbelina are cute, Hansel and Gretel is a bit dark, and Rumpelstiltskin makes me smirk at the end but the one I love most is Snow White and Rose Red .
I remember reading it as a child. I remember liking the story because no one got hurt , except the dwarf. ( but he deserved it) And both girls were happy. They didn’t have to compete against each other. As a little girl I wanted the little girls in my story books to be happy.
Your turn… Click on the link above to see the list and tell me your favorite fairy tale . 🙂
One thought on “What is your favorite fairy tale and why?”
Love this post! My favorite fairy tale would have to be Sleeping Beauty. It’s both scary and wonderful. I had it on an vinyl record when I was a kid and I enjoyed listening to it on my small turntable record player. The music, voices, and sound effects were wonderful. Oh my goodness… after searching and searching I finally found it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpuxGTDX2PI (Tale Spinners for Children Sleeping Beauty with Denise Bryer)
When I finally found it, I instantly recognized the cover (and that awful evil fairy!)
Thanks for bringing up a great memory, Erin. Excuse me while I go listen to this again.
