I love reading books that have fairy-tale elements in them. (Gregory Maquire’s “Wicked” books are some of my favorite!) I’m always surprised at how different the original fairy-tales are. They don’t always have the typical “happily-ever-after” endings and I don’t think I would let my future young children anywhere near them until they were much, much older. But then again, the version I’m familiar with is usually a Disney movie or some media knock-off.
I’ve also become recently addicted to ABC show Once Upon A Time. Very different and unique versions of fairy-tale stories and the costumes and settings are amazing!
