Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Rants: The Frog Prince

It’s here! It’s here!

As promised (for sooooo long), here is my inaugural video blog (aka: “vlog”) entry in which Princess Alethea Rants About Fairy Tales!

These rants may not always be about the Grimms’ tales, but as I’m a Grimm Girl, and there is CERTAINLY enough fodder in the Complete Grimms’ Tales, this is probably the best place to start.

Enjoy! xox

Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 5

Episode 5: “The Frog Prince” (8:23)

If you don’t know who Faithful Henry is, then you’ve never heard the original Grimms’ version of “The Frog Prince.” In this tale there are about 724 instances of the word “and.” There is also little explanation of how the prince came to be a frog, or why he asks all these strange requests of the princess. Also, the princess is a bit of a shallow jerk. There was no kissing involved. I fully believe her intention was to kill the frog.

A recipe for true love if there ever was one.
