This Week's Topic is: In honor of this month's Bookmobile book, Marissa Meyer's CINDER, name a fable or story you'd like to see a retelling of. If you're feeling creative, come up with a premise of your own!
I do enjoy reading retellings, especially contemporary/supernatural ones, but I've never thought of writing one...okay, maybe I considered a contemporary Robin Hood for maybe three seconds.
So, as I looked over lists of fables and fairytales the only familiar one that jumped out at me as doable but not yet overdone is Hansel and Gretel.
It helps that Hansel and Gretel has sentimental attachments for me. It was my first stage production...I was one of the gingerbread children in the opera when I was twelve. Also, I love gingerbread houses, and have a decorating party every year for the holidays.
*insert villainous laugh*
Actually, the more I think on that one, the more I think it could grow wings and fly...you never know.
What about you? Any fairytale or fable you'd like to retell. Any other take on Hansel and Gretel?
