Weekend Assignment: CSI — The Fairy Tale Edition

Click on the photo to visit the prompt on Education Rethink


I’ve always been a fan of the retold/re-imagined tale. I thoroughly enjoyed Jasper Fforde‘s  The Fourth Bear and The Big Over Easy in which Jack Spratt plays the detective solving “Nursery Crimes.”

This week, when John Spencer of Education Rethink posted a writing prompt inviting authors to create a tale where Red Riding Hood investigates the death of Humpty Dumpty, I knew I had to include it in a Weekend Assignment post. Click on the link above, or on the picture to go to the full prompt.

Maybe Red isn’t your type of character. That’s cool. Just pick a different one to play the role of investigator and give him (or her) a case. What about that Robber Bridegroom? Was the Big Bad Wolf really to blame for the death of those pigs?

Use your imagination and have fun.
