In the recent Seasonal Sampler Giveaway, entrants were asked if there was a particular story they would like to see covered in a future issue of Enchanted Times. Responses ranged from Frankenstein/plastic surgery (unlikely!) to anything dog-related (can you think of any doggish fairy tales? I was blank on this for a while, but actually ‘The Tinder-Box’ by Hans Andersen is a strong contender).
- East of the Sun & West of the Moon
- The Elves and the Shoemaker
- Hans, my Hedgehog
- The Little Mermaid
- The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Who knows what the New Year will bring, but I will certainly bear all these suggestions in mind when sending out ET’s roving reporters to uncover new strands of old stories. In the meantime, please enjoy this stunning adaptation of Andersen’s Little Mermaid by Jenny Smart (whose Thumbelina artwork also featured in ETM #5.5 v.iii A little goes a long way).
Do you have more ideas for stories in need of (further/) investigation by the Enchanted Times? Please see the new SUGGESTIONS BOX feature, under the drop-down feedback menu above. If your suggestion leads to a future feature story (or discovery of a new Goblin Market product), you could be a winner – follow the link for further details!
