Based on the diaries Susan has kept since she was in her 20s, The Fairy Tale Girl is book one of a two part series. Together the books are an illustrated memoir, charmingly designed in Susan's style with her whimsical watercolors and personal photographs. It's an enchanting story of love and loss, mystery and magic that begins in a geranium-colored house in California, and ends up, like any good fairy tale, on the right side of the rabbit hole, in a small cottage in the woods on the New England Island of Martha's Vineyard. The Fairy Tale Girl humorously explores Susan's journey as an artist and as a girl/woman, from the 1950s through the 1980s. In the first book of the series we get a revealing view of Susan's early life as the oldest of eight children and the marriage she imagined would be forever; it's filled with inspiration, romance and discovery, and a leap into the unknown.

A Time Out New York Best Book of the Year. “[Bernheimer is] one of literature’s foremost champions of the fairy tale.” —Nylon Elegant and brutal, the stories in Kate Bernheimer’s latest collection occupy a heightened landscape, where the familiar cedes to the grotesque and nonsense just as often devolves into terror. These are fairy tales out of time, renewing classic stories we think we know, like one of Bernheimer’s girls, whose hands of steel turn to flowers, leaving her beautiful but alone. “Deftly blends gloomy fairy tales with existential manifestos. Nine nimble stories confront a spectrum of suffering; loneliness, addiction, poverty, and death lay exposed with open language for all to interpret.” —Entrophy “[Bernheimer], an impassioned advocate for the relevancy of the fairy-tale genre, fills the whole strange, lovely book with such gems, reinventing traditional, timeless tales for new readers.” —Time Out New York “With dinosaurs and pink sisters, shadows and talking dolls, librarians and totems, Bernheimer presents haunting looks at mothers and daughters, the magic of childhood, and the power of illusion, fantasy, and dreams.” —San Francisco Book Review “I’ll read anything [Kate Bernheimer] writes, and I’ll undoubtedly learn more about myself and my own writing than from 100 other books. Truth is, I hope every young writer is lucky enough to discover a particular writer who speaks to her more than any other, a writer whose words reach out through the pages and touch her heart, the way Kate Bernheimer has done for me.” —Electric Literature “Bernheimer manages to tickle the cerebrum without sacrificing surface pleasures.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 404 In this 404th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Swahili Fairy Tale "THE ONE-HANDED GIRL”. A dying man asked his children which they would have: his property or his blessing. His son wanted his property, and his daughter his blessing. He died. Soon after, his wife died as well, and again, the son wanted her property and the daughter her blessing. She died. The brother left his sister only a pot and a vessel, but people borrowed her pot and gave her corn for it, so the sister survived. One day, she had a pumpkin seed and planted it, and grew pumpkins as well. Her brother, envious, stole her pot and mortar, but she was able to replace them by selling her pumpkins. Her brother's wife sent a slave to buy one, and the sister gave her one for free, though there were few left, so the wife sent another slave, and this one the sister had to send away, because there were none left. The wife wept and told the brother that his sister would sell pumpkins to other people but not to her. Enraged, the brother went to cut the sister's pumpkin patch down. His sister told him that if he did, he would cut off her hand with it, but putting her hand on it did her no good: he cut it off while chopping down the vines. Then he sold the house she lived in and cast her out. Well, what happened next you ask…? Well many things happened. There were some strange, some silly and some serious occurrences. But exactly what were they? To find the answers to these questions, and others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!

Parents, there's no point hushing the topic of sex. Our pre-teens will see and hear confusing and inaccurate messages about their sexuality, through the media and among their peers. All around them, casual \"hook-ups\" are the new the relational norm. But we can win the hearts of our girls with a message of purity, by bringing the topic out into the light and offering the straightforward answers they need to make informed choices. Dr. Missy Kifetew remembers her own frustration in not being able to find the answers about sex she sought as a young girl. So here she writes with a tone of love, understanding, and honesty, as if penning a letter to her own daughter. In fact, she is. Her desire to equip her own daughter to pursue a sexually pure life inspired this book! In Beyond the Fairy Tale, girls will learn about the two basic necessities that prepare them to live sexually pure. They'll see how the beauty of God's creation is reflected in them and in His design for their sexuality. And they'll be equipped to avoid the dire consequences of sex apart from God's plan. Rather than a list of dos and don'ts, this book helps girls understand how and why God is for sex and pleasure... within the safe and loving boundary of marriage he designed. What our girls know and don't know about sex will make a lasting difference in their lives-like the difference between darkness and light. Each chapter includes reflection questions. Parent Guide and Leader Guide are available for download on the author's website, to help strengthen communication with youth on the topic of sex.
This book examines how the fairy tale is currently being redeployed and revised on the contemporary teen screen. The author redeploys Victor Turner’s work on liminality for a feminist agenda, providing a new and productive method for thinking about girlhood onscreen. While many studies of teenagehood and teen film briefly invoke Turner’s concept, it remains an underdeveloped framework for thinking about youth onscreen. The book’s broad scope across teen media—including film, television, and online media—contributes to the need for contemporary analysis and theorisation of our multimedia cultural climate.

The language and linguistic organization of a dozen versions, old and new, of the Little Red Riding Hood story are analyzed using a variety of theoretical approaches, including Critical Discourse Analysis, Conversational Analysis, Functional Grammar and Critical Stylistics, to uncover the contribution of fairy tales to the discourse of gender relations over time.

As in the United States, fairy-tale characters, motifs, and patterns (many from the Western canon) have pervaded recent Japanese culture. Like their Western counterparts, these contemporary adaptations tend to have a more female-oriented perspective than traditional tales and feature female characters with independent spirits.In From Dog Bridegroom to Wolf Girl: Contemporary Japanese Fairy-Tale Adaptations in Conversation with the West, Mayako Murai examines the uses of fairy tales in the works of Japanese women writers and artists since the 1990s in the light of Euro-American feminist fairy-tale re-creation and scholarship. After giving a sketch of the history of the reception of European fairy tales in Japan since the late nineteenth century, Murai outlines the development of fairy-tale retellings and criticism in Japan since the 1970s. Chapters that follow examine the uses of fairy-tale intertexts in the works of four contemporary writers and artists that resist and disrupt the dominant fairy-tale discourses in both Japan and the West. Murai considers Tawada Yoko’s reworking of the animal bride and bridegroom tale, Ogawa Yoko’s feminist treatment of the Bluebeard story, Yanagi Miwa’s visual restaging of familiar fairy-tale scenes, and Konoike Tomoko’s visual representations of the motif of the girl’s encounter with the wolf in the woods in different media and contexts. Forty illustrations round out Murai’s criticism, showing how fairy tales have helped artists reconfigure oppositions between male and female, human and animal, and culture and nature. From Dog Bridegroom to Wolf Girl invites readers to trace the threads of the fairy-tale web with eyes that are both transcultural and culturally sensitive in order to unravel the intricate ways in which different traditions intersect and clash in today’s globalising world. Fairy-tale scholars and readers interested in issues of literary and artistic adaptation will enjoy this volume.
