In William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing (1599), Benedict jokingly quotes the tag, “It is not so, nor ‘twas not so, but indeed God forbid it should be so,” saying it is from an old tale. The two young sisters in Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro, 1988) go live in the countryside while their mother is ill, and there they encounter friendly forest spirits called totoro. And, in their death the sinners became saints. This funny fractured fairytale goes behind the scenes of Rumpelstiltskin. “A most magical feat,” writes Newbery Honor-winner Kirby Larson, “Liesl Shurtliff spins words into gold.”In a magical kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone’s joke.

Steppenwolf deals with the human and animal nature of the individual and portrays the artist and intellectual as an outcast. This basis of Svenska folksagor och a early collection never achieved the popularity of the Norwegian tales, perhaps because Hylt en-Cavallius retold the tales in a deliberately archaic language. Scholars no longer considered folktales to be the receptacles of fragments of myth or products of primitive thinking. Among the tales, published between 1899 and 1902, were Ivan-tsarevich, Zhar-ptitsa i sery volk (Ivan The Tsar’s Son, the Firebird, and the Grey Wolf); Vasilisa prekasnaya (Vasilisa the Beautiful); Peryshko Finista yasna-sokola (The Feather of Finist the Falcon); Mariya Morevna; Tsarevna-Lyagushka (The Frog Princess); and the lyrical Belaya utochka (The White Duck).

Westport, CT: Green€nsel und Gretel.” Frankwood Press, 1987. 69–71; B€ ohm-Korff, Regina.
