What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

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.

One thought on “What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

  1. 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.
