Featured Fairy Tales

I LOVE fairy tales! They have always been such a huge part of my life and still continue to be. I’ve fallen in love with the various retellings out there, but sometimes I stop and think: what about the original tales? Sure, we all know the Disney-fied versions, but if you’ve ever sat down and read the original tale you quickly realize that not everything is as happily ever after as we might think.

Featured Fairy Tales is a project I started a few years ago where I feature a different fairy tale, breaking it down some so we can get a better look at it. I will start out by telling you the tale, then discuss why I love it, why you’ll love it, and finally give you a few examples of some great retellings.
