I love the Twelve Dancing Princesses because I love to read the different ways it is told because it can be told so many different ways.

My favorite fairy tale is Peter Pan. I know that it comes very close to not counting as a fairy tale, but fairy dust IS a big deal in it. I have always loved this story. When I was little I used to try and teach myself to fly so I could go to Neverland. I think what made me love this story is the idea of flying. Ever since I was little I've dreamed about having that superpower.
