Once again I’ve had a great time rediscovering some of the fairytales I read when I was younger, while I tried to decide which one I wanted to retell next. Then I stumbled on a Scottish fairytale published in the 1800’s. Considering the amount of fairytales I’d read as a child, I was surprised to find one I hadn’t read before. I was fascinated. I knew immediately that this was the one I wanted to retell. After reading the story several times, trying to decide whose point of view I wanted to tell the story from, I decided it should be from two characters. The evil witch and the prince. These characters stood out more than any of the others, making me feel that it was their story. I’d love to know if you think the story belongs to them too.
