"Breathing New Life Into Old Stories" permalink
When I started reading Tales of the Big Bad Wolf, I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, other than the obvious retelling of a fairy tale that many of us are familiar with, but I've been pleasantly surprised by what the author has done. The age-old character have been dusted off and each seems to have been given more of a depth and life of their own than they were really allowed in the old tale. I'm especially intrigued with what has been done to the wolf; I've always been more interested in stories that don't seem quick to demonize any particular character, and this is what the author seems to have achieved here. Also, I've been enjoying the site design, especially the artwork that goes along with each chapter.
Although I haven't read too far into the story yet (up through chapter 5c), I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories based off of mythical or fairy tale references. I'm most interested to see where the story goes from here, especially what happens to the wolf and Red Riding Hood, and to see what the author does next.
