Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time On TV & In Literature


Network prime time television is suddenly all about fairy tales this fall with two fairy-tale based series premiering in the same week. Once Upon A Time is on ABC and Grimm is on NBC. Just the fact that these show are on TV will mean an increase in books and movies with fairy take themes. If these two shows are successful, then we should see more like them in the future because, as the saying goes, “In Hollywood, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”


Since I saw the pilot episode of Once Upon A Time the other day, it made me think that now is a good time to write about my own children’s book told in rhyme which came out earlier this year. It’s called Joyce of Westerfloyce – The Story of the Tiny Little Girl with the Tiny Little Voice.




There are lots of extras included in the ebook such as parent/teacher/discussion questions, vocabulary words, and activities to accompany the reading.


Here are the opening paragraphs of the story:


Once upon a time
In a village called Westerfloyce
There lived a tiny little girl
With a tiny little voice


She had a dainty blue dress
Which she wore by choice
She was always quite happy
So she earned the name of Joyce


Her skin was so soft
Her disposition calm and fair
Pretty pink ribbons
Adorned her long, golden hair


They assumed she had
Not a single vice
Made entirely of sugar
Sweetness and spice


– - – - – - – - – - – - – -


They assumed wrong!


Find out Joyce’s big secret.
