    It's All Good

    Being a bit of an old fairy myself it goes without saying that fairy tales are wonderfully insightful glimpses into our cultural and moral sensibilities as passed onto subsequent generations. They also are lovely to read. My personal favourites are by Oscar Wilde, full of colour...

    Dark Tales

    I grew up with an artist and storyteller father. Since I was old enough to remember, he spun fantastic tales of faeries and goblins who dwelled in the woods behind our house, carved gnomes for me out of scrap wood, and drew pictures for me to hang on my walls. He inspired my love...

    Especially the older,

    darker versions, like the original versions of Grimm's. And when you think about it, Hans Christian Andersen wasn't exactly a ray of sunshine either. The little mermaid basically commits suicide in his version. My all time favorite is Bluebeard. IMHO, it's one of the first...

    Lessson By Fairy Tales

    The lesson which a fairy tale teaches effects easily and profoundly? An archer of any motive should say to himself: 'As I was drawing the bow, I travelled a long road. Now I release this arrow knowing that I took the necessary risks and gave of my best.'

    And Other Fables And Old Stories

    I love all sorts of children's literature. I even took a course on it in college. I love reading various stories, old and new, from all over the globe. But the most impressive and entertaining are the oldest stories on record. :)

    I like fairy creatures.

    ..like the Irish ones... I find a pleasant feling Reading their stories, magical tales about long lost places, a way of letting the mind fly ...far from this world of ours...which can be so stressing and hurting ... I wish one of them could come now and take me with them...

    Wasn't Aware.... AND Not soo much anymore!

    of how religious most are. For Kid's Lit I was just reading the Brothers Grimm Aschenputtel (Cinderella) and the mother told the daughter to be pious and pray daily. I was shocked as I didn't remember that when I used to hear them growing up. Also that some of the people I...

    Nice Stories, But Kind Of Cruel.

    I do love fairy tales, I really do. I'm a kid in a grown up's body, probably why I have an easier time managing kids than most adults do. As a little kid, I loved them even more. But the down side of being a kid listening to fairy tales is that you actually believe them. You...

    Fairy Tales Are Very Important In My Life.

    I have always loved fairy tales since I can remember. I remember we used to have fairy tale collection books. When I grew "too old" for them, my mother gave them away! I was sad, real sad, because at that time I started liking them again... But my sister, my dear sister...

    Goldilocks And The Three Trolls

    One day (well, we think it was day; it could have been night; there are no time zones for data) Goldilocks got lost in The Cloud. No really. A real Goldilocks, not a virtual one. She was wandering around really quite lost. Everywhere she looked: nothing but white. Sometimes the...
