This week’s fairy tale was A Leaf From Heaven. I hadn’t read this before! It’s about a leaf falling from a heavenly planet. An angel is carrying the leaf around. No-one can recognise the strange leaf. A botanist gets involved and tries to categorise the strange plant! A young girl puts the leaf into her bible. She dies later (how cheery! and a man who looks after pigs uproots the leaf and feeds it to his pig. The story ends with the leaves being quite powerful and able to cure the king’s melancholy! A rather random little fairy tale, but interesting to read all the same!
