Around the Web

Fairy Tale Footnotes-everyone's favorite fairy tale news hound, Ink Gypsy (of Once Upon a Blog), has started another blog with more of her personal reflections and day to day encounters with fairy tales! Lots of great posts are already up. I particularly enjoyed reading about C.S. Lewis and Tolkein's thoughts on Disney Dwarves, and seeing the matroyshka doll based off of Koschei's hidden heart!

At Multicolored Diary-I've been loving Csenge Zalka's series on folktales around the world-she brings her impressive knowledge to shed light on folktale collections from all around the world, lots of fascinating stories and patterns of stories! She also just finished her A to Z challenge, WTF, Weird Things in Folktales. Some really bizarre, and very amusing, tales to read about!


  1. Aw thanks for the lovely shout-out! I'm so glad you're enjoying my personal fairy tale encounters blog! I wasn't sure if people would want to read stuff like that but then thought, heck, I would if someone else recorded their FT moments, so gave it a go. :) And I've been loving Csegne's posts at the Multicolored Diary a LOT. The weird things in folktales series - is it weird I don't find them so weird..?

    1. Haha, not weird at all! I think the more folktales you know, the more you get used to the strangeness of the genre.

      I wish I had more time to get to all your new posts! I'll read what I can though :)
