1. Choose one of the fairy tales below. Follow the links for different versions of the same tale. Compare and
contrast the different versions. A good place to go (which is linked many times in the box below is
He has a bunch of great links to different versions of fairy tales. Anyway, write your compare/contrast as part
of your Fairy Tale packet to turn in.
2. Access at least 5 more fairy tales and choose just one version of each. Choose your favorite of the tale chosen
for number 1. Fill in the comparison chart for fairy tales. (Copy this comparison chart six times, obviously.)
3. Make a list of items from the six tales that you read that you feel are essential elements in a fairy tale. Based
on these elements, create your own fairy tale.
4. Write the fairy tale on durable paper, and illustrate. This book will be presented to the class, so make the
words and illustrations large enough to show to a classroom sized audience. Bind your book as desired.
5. You may keep your book but make a paper copy for all the students in the class as well as your teacher, who
grades you (text only, unless you just want to share ...).
6. At your book presentation, turn in your compare/ contrast page, six comparison pages, your list of essential
elements, and a written copy of your story.
|Due to copyright laws, I am unable to copy other editions for you on this website, with the exception of
James Finn Garner's tales, who was sweet enough to grant permission! However, if you should find them at
McKay or online, they are a wonderful purchase; you will get a kick out of them.
BUT, on my own visits to McKay, I have found lots of copies of fairy tales. Here are a few suggestions if you
are looking to own some or check some out of the library. I always recommend trips to McKay; you can find
so many children's books that are so worth the price to own. And really, their prices are priceless!!! Buy them
for hours of Weekend Fun.
Beauty and the Beast, retold and illustrated by Jan Brett.
ANY Hans Christian Anderson stories
ANY Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm stories
QPB Illustrated Treasury of Classic Fairy Tales, various authors and illustrators.
The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith.
Plus many more that are fabulous. Have fun!

|World's Shortest Fairytale
Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl "Will you marry me?" The girl said,"NO!" And the guy lived happily ever after and went fishing and
hunting and played golf a lot and drank beer and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.
