In a bid to create a global ‘fictional’ version of Scotland’s fairy tales legend, a group of Scottish writers have created a “fairytale giant” to help them to write their fairy tales and bring them to life.
They have written a book, Fairy Tales Scotland, that will be published by Scottish publisher, Macmillan in 2019, to help those who want to create their own versions of Scotland, according to the BBC.
The group, known as The Fairy Tales Society, has developed a series of ‘fantasies’ for the first time in Scotland.
They are based around Scottish fairy tales that have been passed down to them by their grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
One of the ‘fancy tales’ that the group has created is ‘The Rose and the Thorn’ by Robert Louis Stevenson, who is credited with bringing the fairy tales to Scotland.
It was originally published in the 1840s and has since been translated into several languages including English and French.
The Scottish version has been adapted into several films and books including ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘A Christmas Carol’.
The ‘fantasy giant’ that The Fairy Tale Society will be working with, and will help them develop their own stories and create their ‘fictions’, is called the ‘Fairy Tale World’.
They hope to bring it to the UK, where it is known as a fairy tale epic, to create ‘fanciful stories that people can enjoy and relate to’.
It will also allow people to take part in the creation of a ‘fascination fairy tale’, which would feature in a movie.
The organisation has published its first ‘fansite’ in October 2017, which was based on a series by the famous novelist and playwright, Arthur Conan Doyle, and is a book of stories from the original edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
It is hoped that by creating the ‘World’, people can get into a ‘little fable world’ where they can watch and learn about the ‘real world’ around them, according the BBC’s John Nellis.
