Retelling of a Fairy Tale
- a story that takes a fairy tale and changes plot points, characters, and/or themes, but a reader can still identify the original tale
As we begin this month's discussion, here are some guiding questions:

- Was the story an original fairy tale or a retelling?
- If it was a retelling, how close was it compared to the original fairy tale?
- Were there other genres woven into the text?
