Tale Weaver #121 25.05.17: Reverse/Naughty Fairy Tales

Thanks Lorraine for this week’s challenge with an image from The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch:

‘It was not supposed to be this way!
‘But you were my knight in shining armour, my saviour, my magical Prince.’
‘I’m not ready for parenthood! How could you be so careless?’
She saw red then.
‘ME careless??? Who was it who swept me off my feet with words of undying love and devotion?
Who then went away on a TENNIS tour, leaving me on my own for months?
Well, you certainly gave me a Night to remember.
Now get out!’



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Lovely — you caught the attitude of the Paper Bag Princess perfectly — just the sort of the attitude I was hoping folks would give their fairy tale characters this week.
    Perfect contribution — thanks for playing along.

    I really enjoyed this – how you used the image and ran with a new interpretation – definitely brought it up to speed – and it speaks with the same “assertive” tone of the original story. Great job!

    • Thank you for your kind comment. I have to admit, I’m not familiar with the story, so maybe I should look it up!

        It’s an amazing story! And what, maybe a 15 minute read? It’s targeted for children, but honestly, I know many adults who adore it – but then, most of Munch’s books are *that* good. 🙂

  3. Haha great I love reading how you have made this imagery so relational to reality. Great work
