Thanks to Luna for making Fairy Chrissi!

Welcome to another Fairy Tale Friday. This week I read The Fisherman And His Wife. I wasn’t familiar with this fairy tale before today. I don’t think it’s a stand out fairy tale. It’s certainly not as memorable as some of the others I have read for this feature, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

The Fisherman and His Wife is about a poor fisherman who one day captures a fish, he finds out that this fish is an enchanted Prince. The fish asks the fisherman to let him go, which the fisherman does as he has never seen/heard a talking fish before. The fisherman’s wife thinks he’s stupid and should have asked the enchanted Prince for a wish. The fisherman goes back to find the fish. The enchanted Prince grants some wishes. The wife gets greedy and asks for more. The fisherman knows that his wife is getting greedy, but she can’t be stopped. The sea is getting stormier and the fish/enchanted Prince is getting angry. When the fisherman’s wife demands to be equal to God, the enchanted Prince revokes everything that he has granted, leaving the fisherman and his wife as destitute as before.
