She invited us to recall them, admitting that her favorites didn't make the Disney big screen. I knew the answer to this question, immediately. My favorite fairy tales were not done by Disney either. Two of them you might be familiar with, but I'd be surprised if you know the third, and probably my favorite as a child.
Golden Press published a beautiful series of Hans Christian Andersen stories illustrated with 3D puppet holographic images. I owned two of these books, The Wild Swans which Juliet Marillier used as part of the basis of her book, Daughter of the Forest. The other Golden Press book I loved was The Snow Queen. I no longer have my copy of The Snow Queen, but I read my original copy of The Wild Swans to my granddaughter a few months ago. She fell under its spell, which thrilled me to no end.
But, as a child, the fairy tale I probably read the most was Snow White and Rose Red. Maybe you didn't know that these two characters co-starred in a story, but they did. Both found love without the help of seven dwarves. and a bear (who really was a prince) played a large part in their story. Not too long ago, I pulled out my fairy tale volume of The New Junior Classics (which isn't so new anymore) and discovered my memory of the story contains gaps. The story didn't enthrall me like it used to, but then, I'm not ten years old anymore, either. It still lives in my heart as a story that filled my mind with wonder and imagination.
As for Disney? From the classics, I prefer Sleeping Beauty. Of the more recent titles, my favorite is Beauty and the Beast.
