Hello everyone and happy New Year!
You probably know the stories of Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and The Three Little Pigs, or do you? Try looking at these same tales from the antagonist’s perspective. Are they as bad as the original stories would have us believe or just misunderstood?
This question is answered in the following retellings.
No Lie, I Acted Like a Beast!: The Story of Beauty and the Beast as Told by the Beast by Nancy Loewen, illustrated by Cristian Bernardini
Seriously, Cinderella Is So Annoying!: The Story of Cinderella as Told by the Wicked Stepmother by Trisha Speed Shaskan, illustrated by Gerald Guerlais
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! by A. Wolf by Jon Scieszka, illustrated by Lane Smith
1. Compare and contrast the retelling with the original story.
2. Rewrite a classic tale from a different perspective.
