It’s What’s Your Favourite day over at Revenge of Eve, and today’s topic is fairly tales.
I don’t have much recollection of being read to as a child. My mother loves to read, so I think it must have happened but I don’t remember it. What I do remember is watching Disney movies every Sunday night with my grandfather. I think a lot of Disney movies are based on fairy tales, so I’m going to go out on a limb and talk about that.
My favourite would have to be Pete’s Dragon. Not the newest version, but the one from 1977.
For those of you who don’t know it, the story is about a boy named Pete who for various reasons (orphan, abused, sold) had trouble dealing with reality and so would escape into a fantasy world. Pete’s best friend is a dragon named Elliot. The movie is about overcoming dire circumstances and gives hope in being able to survive even when it might not seem possible.
