Research on going..

Still researching on the story- and I found there are plenty of parallel titles of the same story only with different titles like “The Kind and Unkind Girls and Diamonds and Toads.” This new website is at http://www.surlalunefairytales.com.
Well, I must say that I am impressed as I find out these folktales actually managed to be circulated throughout Europe although there were no savvy technology tools like the Internet. For example, Perrault’s story was circulated from France to Germany, while the Grimm brothers came across the story while conducting their research on Linguistics. It is amazing how many new things you can learn by just taking some time to do research on a topic!
