NAPOWRIMO DAY #19
Use one of the following famous Fairy Tales and change it…in at least three ways in a poem (any style or no style). Change the ending. Change the setting/time period. Use a character from a different fairy tale. Use a famous celebrity or cartoon character in the fairy tale. Make the villain the misunderstood hero.
Fairy Tales: Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Beauty and the Beast, The Boy who cried Wolf, Cinderella, The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Frog Prince, The Gingerbread Man, Jack the Giant Killer, Peter and the Wolf, The Pied Piper, Rapunzel, The Red Shoes, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, The Three Little Pigs, Thumbelina, or The Ugly Duckling, or Irving’s Rip Van Winkle and Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Fracture them, combine them, twist them in a poem—any form or no form.
