Reading Notes: Italian Tales part B

I really like the first story of the sin being able to talk to animals. I think it would be great if I switched the gender and put it into modern terms.

The Sexton nose is interesting as well because it goes on and on about getting on thing from another.

The last story had potential to make a new story out of but the original was boring.

 Italian Popular Tales unit. By Thomas Frederick Crane (1885).

Reading Notes: Italian Popular Tales, Part A

Italian Popular Tales by Thomas Crane

I like Zelinda and the Monster because it kind of has slight Cinderella feel to it but mostly beauty and the Beast. I really want to see how this really traditional story can do with a gender swap. 

I most likely will just make the three sisters men and the beast a girl. 

I like the thought of changing the last story as well. I think it is sad that the moral of the story is, those who do good are ill treated and those who do bad are rewarded.
