Synopsis

My Book of Stories Write Your Own Fairy Tales by Deborah Patterson

This is a compendium of story starters taken from some of the very best stories ever written. Bewitching scenes from Hansel and Gretel, magical transformations from the Ugly Duckling and happy endings from Sleeping Beauty will inspire new characters to be created, new endings to be written, and perhaps even a new comic strip to unfold. Within the colourful and beautifully illustrated pages of this book are opportunities to write tales of travels through mysterious forests, or to invent new companions to help defeat a wicked witch, or to conjure up the ultimate punishment for an innocent prince. Budding authors will have stories to write, journal entries to fill in and pictures of new characters to draw, all inspired by some of the best-loved fairy tales from around the world, featuring not only the well-known stories of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, but also less familiar tales from Eastern Europe, India and the Middle East. My Book of Stories will also be packed full of writing top tips, fairy tale fun facts and mind-boggling puzzles to complete.
