Great Ideas And Fairy Tale Stories

Great Ideas and Fairy Tale Stories

Life’s lesson are taught in various ways. Stories are one way to share ideas, beliefs, entertainment, information, and life struggles. Fairy tales are stories that mark inspiring and intelligent literature for all.

History shows that fiction story writers are people with profound depth and goodness in their hearts. Readers have to find out the moral value of the story. Thank God for the beautiful stories and the writers who help us see life, with hope and faith that goodness saves man.

The Shoemaker and the Elves by Sue Ullstein
Pinnochio by Carlo “Collodi” Lorenzini
The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” features Nicholas Cage and Jay Baruchel in a fairy tale based story this 2010.

There are revisions and new ideas. For one fiction story to create effects and highlight, modifications are made. Virtues are highlighted in the films.

In the end the village boy triumphs with the magic, and helps his village/community with his bird friend to get good harvests.

The Shoemaker and the Elves

Stories are woven to show the beauty of life in simple things. The poor shoemaker works hard in his old age (and with his wife), then creates the finest shoes in their village.

The elves help them because they are a good couple who works hard. The wife makes clothes for the elves and there is sharing and support in the old couple and the elves.

Life is sharing in whatever form, and with everyone else.


The Pinocchio story is the puppet (turned-real boy), who lies and gets his nose longer because of lying. Kids love the animation of this story. I could recall the toy stories in the movies where everything moves.

After the troubles, Pinocchio becomes a good boy and stays out of trouble. Again the virtue of goodness and honesty are shown.

The Little Match Girl

How lovely! But this story is a sad story of a poor little girl forced by a bad parent to sell matches in the cold snowy night. Another heartless boy robs her shoes.

The little match girl comes freezing to death in the snow while working. The symbols used in the story are vivid and deeply touching the heart.

In the end the little match girl dies and gets reunited with her grandmother to join with God.

Here we can see the abused children molested to do adult duties. While they are supposed to study and enjoy life, some people abuse them.

Children are angels, we have to help them live and enjoy life.
