    Imagine yourself telling a fairy story to a child or group of children! Try changing any of the details of the story and you will discover something significant about audiences and expectation: there is no way a five year old will permit ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ become Little Black Riding Hood! Hansel and Gretel will not become George and Gretel! Goldilocks will not countenance a fourth bear, and even in non-porridge-eating-households, muesli or flakes will not find their way into those bears’ bowls!
