Fairy Tale Friday: Clip Show Edition

June 11, 2010 at 12:07 am Leave a comment

Happy Friday, readers! My life has been woefully short on fairy stories lately, so you’re going to have to settle for some magical web links instead:

  • Neil Gaiman has a short story that reinterprets Snow White, called “Snow, Glass, Apples.” An amazing story, even though its popularity is probably due at least in part to Twilight fans (the story was written in 1994, well before the current vampire trend). It’s wonderfully chilling, but in a way that makes the reader realize just how creepy the original story was all on its own.
  • Jacqueline Ogburn’s A Dignity of Dragons is throughly enchanting, with beautiful illustrations that won’t lose their charm after multiple reads. This one is destined to become a childhood classic — though maybe it’s one of those children’s books adults love and kids hate. Who knows?
  • Ever wondered what economics and fairy tales have in common? Scroll down to the bottom of this article by Edward L. Glaeser to see how he connects Cinderella with economic theory. (Full academic article by Glaeser can be found here.)

Have you seen anything fairy-tale related in the news or online recently? Share it with us in the comments below!
