Duration: 1 July - 30 September 2020


Many of us have grown up with fairy tales, folk tales and fables. For this quarterly challenge, we are inviting you to go on a scavenger hunt and choose words/themes from these stories to inspire the books you read. These keywords can appear in the title, on the cover, or as part of the plot. If you want something a bit more challenging, you could also see if you could find the word inside the book you are reading.

Some examples:

Alice in Wonderland
Alice - Still Alice
Time - "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" from A Tale of Two Cities
Tea - Fishing for Tigers because it has a teapot on the cover
Queen of Hearts - Heartless (a retelling)

Cinderella
Stepsisters - Stepsister
Ball - Summer Ball
Fairy Godmother - The Godmother
Shoe - Ballet Shoes
Pumpkin - Pumpkinheads

Momotaro (Peach Boy, Japanese folk tale)
Peach - James and the Giant Peach
Talking animal companions (Monkey, Dog, Pheasant) - Dr. Doolittle (Original Illustrations & Text) or A Brace of Pheasants

From Aladdin to Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks to Rumpelstiltskin, The Boy Who Cried Wolf to The Tortoise and Hare, it's completely up to you which fairytales, folk tales or fables you choose for this challenge. If you want to include retellings or the actual stories, that's fine too. Post below if you would like to take part.

This challenge is based on an idea by Ashleigh who will be leading it. Thank you!

Used Kingdom of the Blind for a hospitality prompt for Snow White, Rose Red because the Gamache's have several people staying in their house during a snowstorm. Also Three Pines is quite a hospitable place (except for the murders).

It's up to you, but you can set yourself a challenge. Just remember to post an updated post whenever you read another book so I can update, because I don't scroll back so won't notice if you don't post a new one to let me know :)

Also, well done everyone! You guys are smashing it!
