Remake of a Fairytale: the unlikely children's story

Directions: Decide on a common fairytale to adopt a storyline from. Remake the story based on the storyline you have chosen. Maybe this means that you will have different characters and the story will take place in a different time period, but you will follow the common storyline of the fairytale you have chosen.

  • You do not have to include dialogue in your story, but it should be told as if it were a children's book. This will create irony in your project.
  • You are not required to use pictures or to create a booklet from your story, but you are encouraged to do so.
  • You must go through the entire writing process, and your story must not exceed three typed pages.
  • Have fun!
