- I really like the monkey in the tale of the three friends. He seems really resourceful – much more so than his friends. I’d like to potentially rewrite this story with human characters in a different setting and see how it plays out
- I don’t know what to say about the story of the three brothers of fortune. All I want it to see this from the woman’s point of view. I really want her to get the chance to give the three brothers a piece of her mind
- I really enjoyed the story about Cochinango. I’m not sure what I would do with this story if I used it for storytelling this week, but I think it would be fun to work with. I could either remove the magical elements or tell the story from the princesses point of view.
- I feel like the Enchanted Prince story is missing a lot of exposition. I think it would be nice to write about what I image happened leading up the main body of the story. I bet I could come up with something interesting
- I like that the story of the poor man and his three sons has a moral to it. I have been missing those lately, but I like that this moral is applicable to everyday life. It’s honestly really sound advice
