New Approaches to Teaching Folk and Fairy Tales provides invaluable hands-on materials and pedagogical tools from an international group of scholars who share their experiences in teaching folk- and fairy-tale texts and films in a wide range of academic settings. This interdisciplinary collection introduces scholarly perspectives on how to teach fairy tales in a variety of courses and academic disciplines, including anthropology, creative writing, children’s literature, cultural studies, queer studies, film studies, linguistics, second language acquisition, translation studies, and women and gender studies, and points the way to other intermedial and intertextual approaches. Challenging the fairy-tale canon as represented by the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, Hans Christian Andersen, and Walt Disney, contributors reveal an astonishingly diverse fairy-tale landscape. The book offers instructors a plethora of fresh ideas, teaching materials, and outside-the-box teaching strategies for classroom use as well as new and adaptable pedagogical models that invite students to engage with class materials in intellectually stimulating ways. A cutting-edge volume that acknowledges the continued interest in university courses on fairy tales, New Approaches to Teaching Folk and Fairy Tales enables instructors to introduce their students to a new, critical understanding of the fairy tale as well as to a host of new tales, traditions, and adaptations in a range of media.

A magical traveler. A sleeping princess. An unsure reunion. An impossible task. A widow wronged. Five fairytales retold. They're not green with envy, only scorching stories for adult eyes only. You thought you knew them. You were wrong. Lost and Found by Linnea Alexis After Haley Monroe’s estranged husband drops dead, she discovers he left her with a whole lot of debt and most of her family heirlooms missing. Too bad the only person who can help sort through the mess and clear her name is her late husband’s attorney…her only one-night stand and a man she never thought she’d see again. Attorney Eli Libertini jumps at the chance to help Haley clear up the financial mess. He’d like nothing more than to reconnect with his hookup from spring break ten years ago—the woman he’s never been able to forget. “LOST AND FOUND was an ideal bedtime story with its cast of interesting characters, a sweet and sexy love story, and a suspenseful mystery that kept me guessing right up to the very end. It's a modern telling of Grimm's "Stolen Farthings" fairytale, and mingles themes of righting past wrongs, redemption, and second chances with some steamy romance. It's a satisfying read and I'll be watching for more stories from Linnea Alexis.” ~DeAnna Cameron Slumber by Cassandra Dean Upon decree from his king, Sebastian, Tailor to the entire kingdom of Dormiraa, embarks on the mission to fetch the Princess Thalia home, her seven year royal trip over. He didn't expect to find her working with clockwork and gears, encased within a coffin of glass. He did not expect the sight of her wild hair to set his heart to pound, or the flash of her dark eyes would heat his blood. He did not expect he would want her so badly, not when he could never have her. “I am a huge fan of fairy tale retellings…when they are done as well as this one. I have a special place in my heart for Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty style tales, but I have to confess I prefer a strong feminine heroine which is not always the case in those stories. In this story the heroine is strong and knows what she wants, but also able to bend for love. The dichotomy of the strength and frippery of the tailor add to the pleasure of this story.” ~Dreamer2229 Bitten By Snake Oil by Shiloh Saddler Since the death of his wife four years ago, blacksmith Jed Riker has been fighting his attraction to men. When sexy medicine-show man Peter Saint comes into Tumbleweed, Kansas, Jed buys his potion hoping for a cure, but receives vivid erotic dreams of the perfectly built salesman instead. Jed uses all his strength and energy to fight the attraction in a town where the local preacher's hellfire and damnation sermons promise repercussions if he dares to act on them. Can Peter Saint's potions offer a solution and free the blacksmith to live and love as he wishes and not as his closed-minded neighbors demand? “I really enjoyed this story. It was a rather quick read and lots of smoking hot sex between the two MC's! Definitely right up my alley. I liked Jed and Peter together, and thought the end with the Reverend was a bit much but still enjoyable. I will definitely be reading more from Shiloh Saddler in the future!” ~wickedwolvesanddreamingdragons Saving Sultan by Jennah Scott Dillon Sultan never imagined he might some day lose Sultan Ranch. He’s got one month to find the money needed to keep the bank from taking his family’s land. One month to find a miracle. Liam Callahan hasn’t talked to his best friend since the night they kissed six years ago. Now he’s got a chance to make things right and catch the man of his dreams. But first, he has to help Dillon figure out a way to keep Sultan Ranch. “I loved Jennah Scott’s retelling of the Brother’s Grimm tale “Old Sultan.” The original fairy tale, a very short but charming one, is about an old faithful dog that the farmer has deemed useless as the dog has lost his teeth and supposedly his ability to protect the household…One of those Grimm stories where “and then what happened?” doesn’t get answered, not here at least. These Beyond Fairy Tales published by Decadent are a great way to resolve that! I believe the underlying theme to Old Sultan is loyalty and the odd shapes and forms it can take yet remain the bedrock of so many relationships.” ~JA Matthews Don’t Call Me Iron Man by N.D. Wylders Once upon a time...there was this guy. A man who had an IQ out of this world and was arrogant enough to give the legendary Tony Stark a run for his money. He had everything he could ever want—a good job, more money than he knew what to do with, and all the sex he wanted—no strings attached. But that all changed on one fateful night... “This is my first time reading N.D. Wylders’ writing I could not put this story down. There is action, adventure, hotter than sin dominates, and so much more in this story. I am a sucker for a great fairy-tale. This one is a twist on the Brothers Grimm story Iron John. Don’t Call Me Iron Man is an amazing must read story.” ~Redz

The wife of a rich man fell sick, and as she felt that her end was drawing near, she called her only daughter to her bedside and said, “Dear child, be good and pious, and then the good God will always protect thee, and I will look down on thee from heaven and be near thee.” Thereupon she closed her eyes and departed. Every day the maiden went out to her mother’s grave, and wept, and she remained pious and good. When winter came the snow spread a white sheet over the grave, and when the spring sun had drawn it off again, the man had taken another wife. The woman had brought two daughters into the house with her, who were beautiful and fair of face, but vile and black of heart. Now began a bad time for the poor step-child. “Is the stupid goose to sit in the parlour with us?” said they. “He who wants to eat bread must earn it; out with the kitchen-wench.” They took her pretty clothes away from her, put an old grey bedgown on her, and gave her wooden shoes. “Just look at the proud princess, how decked out she is!” they cried, and laughed, and led her into the kitchen. There she had to do hard work from morning till night, get up before daybreak, carry water, light fires, cook and wash. Besides this, the sisters did her every imaginable injury —they mocked her and emptied her peas and lentils into the ashes, so that she was forced to sit and pick them out again. In the evening when she had worked till she was weary she had no bed to go to, but had to sleep by the fireside in the ashes. And as on that account she always looked dusty and dirty, they called her Cinderella. It happened that the father was once going to the fair, and he asked his two step-daughters what he should bring back for them. “Beautiful dresses,” said one, “Pearls and jewels,” said the second. “And thou, Cinderella,” said he, “what wilt thou have?” “Father, break off for me the first branch which knocks against your hat on your way home.” So he bought beautiful dresses, pearls and jewels for his two step-daughters, and on his way home, as he was riding through a green thicket, a hazel twig brushed against him and knocked off his hat. Then he broke off the branch and took it with him. When he reached home he gave his step-daughters the things which they had wished for, and to Cinderella he gave the branch from the hazel-bush. Cinderella thanked him, went to her mother’s grave and planted the branch on it, and wept so much that the tears fell down on it and watered it. And it grew, however, and became a handsome tree. Thrice a day Cinderella went and sat beneath it, and wept and prayed, and a little white bird always came on the tree, and if Cinderella expressed a wish, the bird threw down to her what she had wished for.
