While we’re at it, debating the merits of Disney Princesses and re-imagining Princess-Kissing-Frogs-Fairy-Tales, let’s take another moment for childlike imagination. In an inspired marketing move, UK publishers are going to start putting Roald Dahl excerpts on children’s cereal boxes in the hopes of getting more kids reading. So, we’re gonna post up this Dahlian re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood as our quote of the day. Roald may have styled his poem “revolting,” but we’re gonna take it as a metaphor for how to deal with that villainous GWJBYO in your dah. Fairy Tale Princesses everywhere – take note!
hat tip: thanks to Galley Cat for posting up Roald Dahl’s Cinderella.
