December 20th, 1812 celebrates the 200th Anniversary of the Brother’s Grimm, That’s right, 200 years ago the Children’s and Household Tales (Kinder-und Hausmarchen) was published. Or as we probably know them, The Grimm Fairy Tales. Google celebrated by having an interactive storybook header centered around Red Riding Hood.
But December 20th is also a very special date for me….It’s also my Birthday.
So maybe I was always destined to rewrite and respin the famous tales. It’s in my blood. If I wasn’t spending the day with my family I would have caught it earlier and blogged about it, but Hey, it’s better late than never.
I think that the coolest birthday gift to me would be if my books, my version of that tales would last as long as the Grimm’s versions. That they would be the classics you would read to your kids years down the road.
