This week kicks off Away to Whimsical Fairy Tale Land. I am so excited about it because I love fairy tales so much. There is still time to sign up here. My posts are going to be a little late for this event because my laptop broke yesterday and I had to wait till I got home to get on the desktop computer to finish this post. Now for my introduction:
What is the fairy tale you picked?
I chose to pick Robin Hood. I love Robin Hood's tale. Technically... all Robin Hood stories are retellings because Robin Hood is based on tales of a real character. There is no accurate source material though many people use The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle as the earliest telling so I will be using that book too.
Why did you pick your fairy tale of choice?
I picked this one because I find Robin Hood to be interesting. I really loved Robin Hood from when I was a kid and would watch the Disney Robin Hood movie. Love love! Then when I was a teenager I fell in love with the Robin Hood Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner. I mean such an amazing story. Plus I mean.. the song that goes with the movie??? Swoon. I was going to post the video here but Bryan Adams has made it to where it can't be embeded.. so we'll go with this:
Why do you love Fairy Tales?
I think the reason I love Fairy Tales is because they just take me away to a magical place that seems like it's fun. I suppose I love Fantasy and to me that is what a Fairy Tale is. Plus maybe it's because my mom and dad surrounded my sister and I with Fairy Tales when we were young.
What are some of your favorite Fairy Tales?
I have so many I love!! Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland. I love Villains so much. Maleficent is my favorite. I have actually read most of the source stories
That's all. Be sure to stop by back and check out my review of a Robin Hood retelling.
