Mother Goose: Teller of Fairy Tales

Worlds of Wonder's Mother Goose has another difference between the legend and this version, in that she doesn't recite nursery rhymes. The stories she tells are fairy tales. In fact, Worlds of Wonder didn't touch nursery rhymes until a year later. Mother Goose not only tells and sings the stories, but also interacts with the characters.

Famous quotes containing the words fairy tales, tales, fairy, mother and/or teller:

    And in their fairy tales
    The warty giant and witch
    Get sealed in doorless jails
    And the match-girl strikes it rich.
    Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)

    ech of yow, to shorte with oure weye,
    In this viage shal telle tales tweye
    To Caunterbury-ward, I mene it so,
    And homward he shal tellen othere two,
    Of aventures that whilom han bifalle.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    Every time a child says “I don’t believe in fairies” there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead.
    —J.M. (James Matthew)

    Recent studies that have investigated maternal satisfaction have found this to be a better prediction of mother-child interaction than work status alone. More important for the overall quality of interaction with their children than simply whether the mother works or not, these studies suggest, is how satisfied the mother is with her role as worker or homemaker. Satisfied women are consistently more warm, involved, playful, stimulating and effective with their children than unsatisfied women.
    Alison Clarke-Stewart (20th century)

    The teller of a mirthful tale has latitude allowed him. We are content with less than absolute truth.
    Charles Lamb (1775–1834)
