Student Writer Instructions:
Bubba the Cowboy Prince is a retelling of Cinderella, but the story is made fresh (and funny) by being set in Texas. What happens in the story is basically the same, but the details the author uses to show you the new setting are often very funny. Who ever heard of a Fairy Godcow?!
In this writing exercise, you’re going to take a fairy tale you know very well and put it in a different time and place. You’ll take the characters and details of the place and change them all around to show your new setting. It could make the story a lot of fun. Use your skills of organization to keep the plot the same, but make it a whole new story!
Here’s another fun activity you could do: create some great illustrations for your story that show your characters and your setting!
