    As a writer & one who studies folk & fairy tales, I came up with a list a few years ago that I called, “Stories for a Weak Economy”. I hope to write some adaptations inspired by some of them, but here’s the list:

    Stone Soup
    Hansel & Gretel
    One Grain of Rice
    The Porridge Pot
    Jack & the Beanstalk
    The Shoemaker & the Elves
    The Little Match Girl
    Heidi
    A Little Princess
    Feeding the Multitude: The Loaves & the Fishes
    The Crow & the Pitcher
    Frederick by Leo Lionni (not a fairy/folktale, but a lovely tale about gathering what we need to survive)
    Pied Piper of Hamelin
    Bremen Town Musicians
    The Twelve Months
     Silvershod
    Snow White & Rose Red
    Annie
    Cinderella
    Beauty & the Beast
