The Other Side of the Story

The Other Side of the Story

Most traditional fairy tales are told by a narrator, who sees and knows everything but who still has a certain way of looking at things. For example, the wolf is always “the bad guy.” But many new versions of these stories tell the story from a different point of view—for example, it is told by the giant or the witch. Open the task outline below and explore some of the links to alternative versions before having a go at writing your own Traditional Tale with a twist.
