my favorite childhood story was "the little old man who could not read."

Helen Sanlon said...

My fav fairy tale is the princess and the pea.

Unknown said...

My absolute favorite was, and still is, the Firebird. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firebird_(Slavic_folklore) My grandfather got me a beautifully illustrated pop-up version of the story when I was 4 and I couldn't help but fall in love with it.

Unknown said...

oh the class looks like its bursting with everything I hold dear, colour and creatures!
my favourite fairy tale when I was a girl, was Rapunzel, I used to tie a sheet to my had and swan around the house with this epically long sheet pony tail on more occasions that I could count! I think my love of spinning wheels came from this story aswell, as I have a beautiful old wheel called thumbelina..sigh* how I adore fairy tales.
It would be an honor to win a spot in one of your classes! I am yet to experience one, due to mummy budget.
have a beautiful day Alisa

Sarah Martin said...

this looks amazing. My favorite story is Cinderella

April O. said...

When I was a child, I had beautiful, three-dimensional Hansel and Gretel book. The book was actually in the shape of the witch's candy house, and I would pour over and over that book just because of the amazing illustrations; I could almost imagine myself inside of that story.

Thank you for the walk down memory, and for such a wonderful giveaway!

Denise said...

Oh this class sounds amazing!
I can't decide which was my favorite story. It's between George MacDonald's The Princess and the Goblin (with gorgeous art by Jessie Wilcox Smith!) and Tenthragon by Constance Savery. Both were just scary enough... ;0)

Stacey said...

I love The Princess and the Pea for some reason. Thanks for all the inspiration! I love this blog.

Cindy (JunqueArt) said...

This class looks great! Thanks for the giveaway, keeping my fingers crossed! I loved the Wizard of Oz.

Claudia said...

The Frog Prince....because, of course, one has to kiss a lot of frogs before one meets her handsome prince!

mary said...

My favorite was Sleeping Beauty. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

Natalie B said...

Ooohhh this looks so cool. I am currently doing your larger than life course, so would be stoked to follow it up with this course. My fav of course was snow white & the 7 dwarves. It has all the goodies you want in a fairy tale. Evil witch, beautiful princess, handsome prince and lots of woodland creatures and friends to help the damsal in distress. And of course a happy ending. :-)

jabbott said...

I loved Simon and the witches it was spooky!!

Unknown said...

Not really fairy tale, but the Bible stories. I loved the old testament stories. My mother used to read us at the bed time.

Sara said...

I love the story of Cinderella. I've heard so many different versions and yet it never gets old. :)
The magic, wonder, and true love. That's a fairy tale I love to hear.

Unknown said...

My favorite was Cinderella. I always like to see the underdog win.

nicole said...

The first movie I ever saw in a theater was Disney's Snow White. I was excited and terrified at the same time. Then in high school, my French class put on a play of Snow White - yes, entirely in French. (Wish I could speak it as well as I did then.) This class looks like fun!

Debbie Chouinard said...

I always loved Goldilocks and the three bears. I used to be a blonde child and I lived in the woods.

Kelley said...

My favorite story was "weenie witch", about an old witch who gets banished to the top of a glass hill until she can learn to behave! Would love to have the chance to do this course; it looks intriguing.

Shine on!
Kelley

Gale said...

Oh Gosh, there are sooo many it is hard to pick just one... Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlotte's web, Snow white and Rose Red, Secret Garden and more. I was a big reader and I had (have) a big imagination :>)

lee said...

My favourite was the princess and the pea, the class sounds fabulous

Cynthia said...

What a fun idea. I love Alice in Wonderland. It's a dream with all the craziness of a dream...magical, scary and odd happenings like many of my own dreams.

Unknown said...

I'm afraid not a fairy tale either, but a favorite book. Goodnight Moon-both of my children's first books. Our favorite line, "and the Old Lady whispering hush"

Thank you Alisa-your blog is part of my morning wake up routine!

jen decker said...

I remember my mom telling me the story The Gift of the Magi"....I'm really hoping to win this class!!

Cynthia said...

I loved the Fox and the Grape. I guess it's more of a fable than a fairy tale though. :-)

Serena Lewis said...

I'd love a chance to win a place in your new class, Alisa.

My favourite story as a child was The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. Actually, I loved most of his stories.

Anonymous said...

Rapunzel is our family favorite right now. I really hope I win!

Julia H. S. said...

I can't think of just A favourite fairy tale, all the titles mentioned above make me smile and remember!
Still, "The little mermaid" and her statue in Copenhagen (is it?) could be mine.

Thanks a lot,
Julia

Chris said...

My favorite story was Epaminondas. Part of the fun was because I loved my grandfather telling the story.

KALI PARSONS said...

My favorite fairy tales were the ones my friend, Patricia, and I would make up. I have such fond memories of us sitting under tables at the local cat shows weaving all sorts of tales. They were funny and often involved the President...who happened to be Nixon at that time. Good times. Thanks for the chance in your drawing!

SO exciting! I would love to take this class!
My son who is two has just recently become obsessed with the Harry the Dirty Dog books, which were some of my favorites as a kid. They are so cute and simple with really sweet drawings all while Harry goes on fun adventures. It's been a blast re-living them again.

Anonymous said...

Oh, so many books and stories. My favorite was probably The Borrowers, I loved the creativity of the everyday items used to furnish their homes.

Michellem said...

I've always loved The Little Mermaid - but the tragic original version. . . so moving, what she was willing to do for love.

Anonymous said...

giving spots away for your class is such a lovely thing to do! the class sounds fabulous. When I was in grade school I loved the story of Snow White because all the animals loved her and would gather around her. I had bedroom windows that opened outward (like small french windows) and I used to open the windows hoping and praying that a bird or small animal would come to me on the window sill. haha never happened! But I always wished it would!!

Michelle Turbide, an artist on a soul journey said...

I love the original Snow White fairy tale. Not necessarily the Disney version.

Mary said...

My favorite---definitely Cinderella

A spot in your class would be fun. Thanks for the chance.

Sandi said...

As a child, I never grew tired of hearing the story of bold little Goldilocks barging into the home of the Three Bears, sitting on their furniture and eating their food. She was naughty, but fearless!!

Janet Ghio said...

I love so many of the fairy tales, but one story that my mother used to read to me was called "The Baker's Daughter" and one of the characters names was Carmalita Miggs..

Claudine said...

Mr Popper's Penguins and the Wizard of OZ...! A long long time ago for sure.

Anonymous said...

Maniac Magee! I would love to win this!

Maggie said...

It's a tie between The Princess and the Pea and The Elves and the Shoemaker. I dreamed of sleeping on a pea, waking up black and blue, and realizing I too was a princess.

Christie - Fine Lines said...

I was always a sucker for Cinderella. I had a small book version with records (45s) and a little kids' record player. I also had a big Disney book version with gold trimmed ball gowns and fancy borders. I think I learned how to read listening to that story hundreds of times. I still have both versions of the book, but the big one's pages are all loose and separated from the binding. I used to share it with my 1st grade class as an example of how precious a book might be!!

Deb Zoulias said...

One of my favorites from childhood was The Princess and the Pea. My mom always told us fairy tales before bed and I loved pretending I was the princess! Thanks for the chance to win a spot in your class!

Mrs. Rachel said...

I don't know how I'd ever choose a favorite childhood story. I loved to read as a child, and still do. One of my favorites was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I still remember my mom reading that to us.

Полина Виноградова said...

Cherish said...

I love the story of Frog Belly Rat Bone. My kids love the illustrations, they are so uniquely beautiful for a picture book. Wish me luck ;)

Robyn said...

Barbara's Photography said...

The ugly duckling by far. As a child I . But was so sad that his brothers and sisters made fun of how he looked but in the end he was a beauty even in all of that he still showed them kindness........

Thank you for this chance to win a free class!!!!

Lora said...

My aunt made up a story that she would tell us kids whenever she put us to bed. She named it "Piggy on a Motorcycle". I remember every detail and its still my favorite!

Kate-isms said...

i'm quite a newbie here but i instantly fell in love with this site. for someone living outside the US, the online classes are actually pricey and so i hope to be one of the lucky winners of a free spot.

my favorite Filipino myth about the world's creation, rather than a fairy tale, is that from the Panay-Visayan islands here in the Philippines. It tells about the husband and wife, god Tungkung Langit and goddess Alunsina who went against her husband's orders in order to assert her self. It also tells the legend of why the sky rains on earth. It says in the story that the rains are actually Tungkung Langit's tears reaching the earth where Alunsina dwelt, asking for the goddess' forgiveness.

Sandrine said...

Me, me, me. I would be so happy to follow this new class which seems awesome

yælæd said...

I have a strong connection to Snow White and all different forms and variations of the tale. My grandma used to read it to me while I sat on her lap. The image of her licking her paper soft, wrinkly fingers and turning the pages is so deep in my mind. I wonder if she still has that book, I would very much like to keep it.

Sobre el Arte y otras Aventuras said...

I have two favourite fairy tales. Difficult to decide among them! One is the "Sleeping beauty", like the prince fighting the dragon, the enchanted forest,... and "Peter Pan", wish I could go for a visit to Neverland. Thanks for the chance!

Priyanka Rastogi said...

anna maria said...

My mother was Italian, and when I was a child she read to me from Italian fairy tale books as part of my Italian language lessons.
My favorite is a collection of stories entitled "Chi vuol fiabe, chi vuole? , by Luigi Capuana. I was fascinated by the stories and the illustrations, and still am, in fact I still have the book.
Great memories.

Tracy said...

I've always liked 'The Princess and the Pea.' It seemed so fun and fanciful to me to think that something so small could have such an impact on something so much larger than itself.

Cynthia said...

My favorite fairy tale from childhood was Hansel and Gretel or The Boy Who Cried Wolfe.

Anonymous said...

When I was a young child I read a lot, books I borrowed from the little local library. One series of books I loved were the fairy story collections edited by Andrew Lang. There was the Crimson Fairy Book, the Violet Fairy Book, Grey, Orange, Red, Olive, Green, Pink, Blue and Yellow Fairy Books. They were collections of fairy stories from all over the world collected together in the appropriately coloured coverings. I loved them all. Some of my favourites were How to tell a True Princess (The Princess and the Pea!) The Six Swans, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Snow-daughter and the Fire-son... Imagine my delight when I was able to download them to my kindle to share with my daughters and nieces. I also loved Enid Blyton's The Wishing Chair.

Mermaid33 said...

I Have lots of old Favourites but I really thought that perhaps I would find out I really Should have been a PRINCESS !!!! but no ! It wasnt to be "The Princess and the Pea ! " :)

Alina said...

Woow! Such a great class! I loved a Romanian story called Baby quail. I is a sad story about a baby quail that did not listen to his mom and got shut. When winter came he died because he couldn't fly! It is very sad, but I loved it and always cried when I heard it!

dellerd said...

This looks like a very fun class. My favorite fairy tale is "Snow White" Many years ago when my parents took me to the movies to see it, and Snow White ate the poison apple and fell to sleep. I cried and sobbed, I thought she died and the usher asked my parents to take me out to the lobby. So it is a favorite had a big effect on me....thank you for this great giveaway.....

Rosemaree & Finn said...

kimdeal@web.de said...

Grown up in Eastern Germany, i loved and still love the stories by Hannes Huttner, such as "Taps and Tine". My 2-year-old also fell in love with them, reciting this 3page-story by heart.

http://www.amazon.com/Taps-Tine-Hannes-Huttner/dp/3896033530/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1361266363&sr=8-6&keywords=taps+tine

Fay said...

Hi Alisa, my favourite stories were 20,000 leagues under the sea by Jules Verne and Nobody's boy (Remi) by Hector Malot. I cried my eyes out over Remi and loves the adventures under the sea. Thanks for the offer Alisa!

Fräulein Rucksack said...

I wasn't told fairytales for reasons, but I loved the moomins.

janeine said...

my favourite story is Finding Nemo it's not a story from my childhood but takes me back to it.
I used to be like Nemo, now I behave like Marlin (new mom). But I'd love to live like Dory. Not a clue!

coco.nut said...

in my early childhood I loved fairy tales like Cindirella and Sleeping Beauty, but when I started reading myself I loved adventure books - some Polish classics that you won't be familiar with and all books by Karol May (Winnetou, etc) and other writers, but mostly about Indians ;) I've never really liked Andersen's tales, though - too sad for me...

Virginia said...

Not sure it would be considered a Fairy Tale, the first book my Mum ever bought me was the Tales of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter and my most favourite book from childhood was Alice in Wonderland!

Christine said...

I always loved the Arthurian legends, not exactly fairy tales as such, but rich and powerful stories

tropicslady said...

I would have to say my favorite childhood story is Hansel & Gretel. I even named one of my labrador retrievers Gretel!

Lori said...

I always loved Hansel & Gretel. Thanks for the opportunity - you are so generous.

Lynde said...

I love fairy tales. Picking a favorite would be tricky. But one of my favorite books as a child was There's a Wocket in My Pocket by Dr. Seuss. Frankly I loved all our Dr. Seuss books.

Mary C. Nasser said...

Thank you for the chance to win.
I always loved the fairy tale of the tortoise and the hare. :)

Nancy said...

Another lovely class of yours! <3 With this one I would go and create some stuff for my little niece...
As a child I loved to sit and watch fairy tales with my sister, which we did every sunday at midday so fairy tales are a really lovely memory for me...
Thanks for the chance to win! Nancy

Emie58 said...

Does Mary Poppins count? It was the first movie I ever remember seeing.....

Anne said...

Oh another online class from Alisa!!!
Taking your classes made me sketching again - something that was lost somewhere along a 45 year journey. I love the way you teach us. Keep at it!

Anne said...

I fogot to tell you about a fairytale. I loved one about a pot that made pudding all day long and didn't stop. I don't know the english title. I liked the idea of having something sweat to eat as much as you want :-).

danielle said...

So many to choose from...guess one of my favs would be Charlottes Web, (though not sure that constitutes as a "fairy tale"). And also Cindella. Love your courses! Thanks for this opportunity!

lakeavemom said...

The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton - what a delight. Read it now with Lucy, read it next year with Lucy , read it in 10 years with Lucy and it will still be a delight. My favourite - the land of "do as you please" - delightful!

Kelly Lynn said...

My mother is very creative and always taught us to use our imaginations! I named two of our cats - one was Georgie for Georgie Porggie and the other was Peter for Peter pumpkin eater! :)

Estelle Gomulka said...

"Be Our Guest! Be our Guest! Put your worries off your chest!....Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite! I remember watching it with my neice and nephew when they were little 20 years ago...and now with my little guy still today. A true classic. Makes me want to sing and dance:) Love your art. It is so joyful and inspirational. Pick me! Pick Me!

Cindy Tobey said...

My favorite as a child was always Cinderella - Disney's version. Thanks for the chance to win!

Christell said...

In France, I work with children who have from 2 months to 3 years. When they have between 2 and 3 years they say "no" all the time. During this period I read
this story : "NO"
small goldfish is hungry
but hunger of a candy.
Big goldfish said no.
Then small goldfish also says no.
It is not hungry of soup, no,
it is not hungry of pie, no and no,
it is not hungry of a earthworm in the fishhook, no, no, no.
Small goldfish says noooooooooooo
At the end small goldfish does not know any more if it is hungry of a candy.
Nor even if it is really hungry.
Il would set well at first a big cuddly no ?

Children love this story because they can to shout nooooooo.
I hope my translation will be good.
In any case this class seems very interesting.

ashleymoranyoga said...

Loved The Little Mermaid. Thanks for the giveaway :)

Alice said...

When I was very young and my Grandmother always told us that she had little elves that lived in her shoe boxes and at night they came out and did little jobs to help her around the house and of course we would always leave out cookies for them!! In the mornings it was total magic to me that all the cookies would be gone! Proof that there was elves and I believed with my all of my little heart... In magic!!! I would love to win your course!!! thanks for the opportunity!!! vonniepie@aol.com

Is Narnia a children's story? It's certainly a favourite of mine now in later life. But the Gingerbread House in Hansel and Gretel is my favourite image. Thanks for the offer, love all your work!

I don't remember fairy tales or stories as a kid, but I use to read Green eggs and ham and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish to my son all the time when he was little and those were some fun books!

Victoria said...

My favourite children's story was (and still is) the 'Dark is Rising' sequence by Susan Cooper. I love the way that she revives traditional British myths and legends, including another of my favourite stories, that of King Arthur.

Cinderella!

My favorite story was Martine. She was a little girl, travelling a lot and always with her super cute dog.
I kept all my books and gave them to my daughter !!

Kim said...

My favorite strories was Sesame street but I also loved to write stories myself!;)

Madeline Rains said...

So hard to choose! I loved The Secret Garden and anything by Roald Dahl and all of the Hans Christian Anderson Fairy Tales, especially the illustrations in the collection I had.

Janet said...

I loved the Twelve Dancing Princesses. I loved the rainbow of colored dresses, the dancing, the secrets and the long flowing hair. This class looks like one of my favorites too!

Hope Amen said...

I loved so many books as a child. I still go back and read them! I think one of my favorite book series was the Miss Piggle Wiggle series. Her magic ways of helping was enchanting. Thank-you for the opportunity to win a spot in your wonderful online class.

Alex said...

What a wonderful giveaway. My favorite story as a child was "Caperucita Roja" or "Little Red Riding Hood" My mom used to tell it us in Spanish.

When my two oldest daughters (now 27 & almost 29) were little I purchased all of the Faerie Tale Theater videos, and we watched them all over and over. One of my favorites was the Twelve Dancing Princesses with Lesley Ann Warren. Maybe it was because I didn't really know the story well before watching it, or maybe because I had two little princesses of my own. Thanks for a chance to win a spot in your new class.

Unknown said...

I adored Thumbulina. Still is my favorite! And would love to win a chance to take your class! You are so inspiring!

My very favorite mythical creature is the unicorn- I LOVED them, collected them, and even had rainbow unicorn wallpaper. Unicorns aren't really a fairytale story, so my favorite story was Peter Pan- the thought of flying, and cute sassy Tinkerbell were very appealing to my delightful little mind.

Thanks so much for your giveaway! Your work inspires me!

Kaz said...

It has to be Rapunzel in the tower with her beautiful long hair waiting for a prince to rescue her. I'm still waiting for him!!!

My favorite book from my childhood wasn't a fairy tale but was the book Caps For Sale. I could just see that peddler going around town yelling "Caps, caps for sale. 50 cents a cap.". I would mimic his gestures which brought the caps sailing down at him. Your new class sounds like so much fun.

Paige said...

My favorite fairy tale is Snow White. Who can't help but love the Seven Dwarves? Although my favorite thing about the movie is Snow White's bond with the animals.

MarveLes Art Studios said...

It was hands-down... Black Beauty! I listened to it on LP records for hours at a time... and then read the book several times over!

Natalie said...

Oh this is wonderful! My favorite fairy tale is a little known story "The Tinderbox." I've been wanting to do a class with you forever!

lulu moonwood murakami said...

My favorite fairy tale is the Wizard of Oz. I've read all the books, seen the movie a gazillion times, memorized the sound track... Thank you for this opportunity!

Kate Burroughs said...

I didn't really like any of the fairy tales- all too scary. Your mother dies and you are left to fend for yourself with an evil step-mother. I do have several classic books though that I loved: 1."The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster, illustrated by Jules Ffeifer. My favorite line was "As if it isn't bad enough wasting time but KILLING time is really terrible." and 2. "The Wind in the Willows". I loved the line when Rat says to Moley, "There is nothing like messing around with boats."

Shelly said...

I always loved the stories about fairies and wee folk, and wanted to live in a little toadstool house in the woods! Love your classes, inspiring and beautiful

LoriJ said...

I loved Rumplestitlskin when I was little, I thought it was great how she won over that little mean man in the end! Thanks for the chance to win - I have always wanted to take one of your classes! I love your work!

EEeeek! It's not easy to just pick one.... at a push I think I'd have to go for Rapunzel (closely followed by 4-way tie: 12 Dancing Princesses, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin and The Princess and the Pea).

One of my favorite fairy tale is the story of the last unicorn and the movie is very cute. Thanks for the giveaway.

Brianne Wood said...

I am currently teaching fairy tales and fables to my 2nd grade students! My favorite fairy tale would have to be Disney's Aladdin. (I hope this counts as a fairy tale.) I love that she ends up not having to marry someone her father chooses and she has the freedom to choose who she wants! Thanks for giving away spots!!

Sally said...

Sleeping beauty was my favorite. I love her dress and always wanted long flowing hair. I love your classes. They help me to find a way to express myself In a creative way. Pick me:-)

Ju Ribeiro said...

My favorite childhood story is Hansel and Gretel. I liked to imagine how it would be nice to have a house of candy just for me!

Kourtney L. said...

The Twelve Dancing princesses. I love how they escape down below there bedrooms, through gold, silver and diamond forests to dance the night away.

For my favorite chilhood story, I would have to say Bambi and Peter and the Wolf. I had a vinyl disc of Peter and the wolf and listen to it over and over and over and over again! I just loved (and still do) how a little kid and some friendly animals could overcome this wolf that was scaring everybody! ;)

Robin Sample said...

How fun! My favorite fairy tale was Cinderella, but I always loved Winnie the Pooh and wanted to live in the Hundred Acre Wood. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Monica Owen said...

I poured over a Brothers Grimm folk tale book as a child. It is illustrated by Michael Foreman and the pictures took me as far into my imagination as the stories. I still have it! I have read the stories to my boys (who are now teenagers) and leaf through it myself fairly regularly. Lovely escape.

se7en said...

I always loved Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella. I was a typical young girl who loved to watch and re-watch those movies with my sisters.

Kelly said...

The Emperors New Clothes was my favorite fairy tale! There was just something so hilarious about him walking so pridefully NUDE through the streets! I
