One Folklorist Has Had It and He's Letting Fairyland Have It...
...Does Cinderella ever strike you as a slightly dull Goody Goody?
...Do you ever suspect she is Not Exactly The Sharpest Knife In the Drawer while retelling the tale to your children?
...Have you ever thought that perhaps the fairy godmother would have been more help with the housework than with Finding a Prince Charming?
You are not alone.
The Snarky Narrator feels the same way.
And he (unless, perhaps he's a she) is putting that frustration on paper, in a series of witty essays. Take a look at this tale of Cinderella and see if you don't agree!
