Many lovers of fairy tales are getting fed up with the mindless treatment they have received on film and TV recently. This story is something different. It acknowledges its place in the sea of stories. It’s a re-telling, as all new fairy tales are, but I hope it treads sensitively and lovingly across old ground. I am a lover of fairy tales, and I have written a story that I would like to read myself.
