Darilyn tagged me a few days ago. This really is a different tag and I am excited to see what books strike my interest from it.
Here’s how it works:
1. Pick up the nearest book (one of at least 123 pages)
2. Open the page to 123
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag 5 people.
The book closest to me is one that Stephen is reading for a class at school. It is The Classic Fairy Tales. On page 123 is a rendition of Cinderella called Catskin, by Joseph Jacobs.
” So there she hid her fine dresses, and went up to the castle gates, and asked for work. The lady of the castle saw her, and told her,’I’m sorry I have no better place, but if like you may be our scullion.’ So down she went into the kitchen, and they called her Catskin, because of her dress.”
This book has some interesting versions of the fairy tales and often times they are not ones you would want to read to your kids. But then again, Grimm’s were pretty grim.
I tag…Kas, Emily, Kim, Alisa, and Emily M
