1 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text 1 1 Little Red Riding Hood There once was a girl named Little Red Riding Hood. She had baked some treats for her ill grandmother, who lived on the opposite side of the forest. Little Red Riding Hood s mother said she could take the treats to her grandmother, but she was not to talk to strangers on the way. Soon after leaving on her journey, Little Red Riding Hood met a wolf, who was curious to know where she was going. After Little Red Riding Hood told the wolf where Grandmother lived, the wolf raced ahead to Grandmother s house and ate the grandmother. Then he disguised himself as Grandmother by wearing her glasses and lying in her bed. When Little Red arrived she thought something seemed odd about Grandmother. What big ears you have, she said. All the better to hear you with, he answered. What big eyes you have, she said. All the better to see you with, he answered. When she commented on the size of his teeth he jumped out of bed to try to eat her. He chased her out into the woods, where a woodsman heard her cry. The Woodsman killed the wolf and cut it open. Out came Grandmother. Little Red Riding Hood thanked the Woodsman.

2 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text 2 Goldilocks and the Three Bears This is a story about a girl named Goldilocks who came upon the house of three bears: Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear. Since the bears were out, she let herself in to the house. She noticed three bowls of porridge. The first one was too hot to eat. The second one was too cold. But the third one, which belonged to Baby Bear, was just right. So she ate it all. After her meal she decided to sit by the fireplace. The first chair was too soft. The second chair was too hard. But the third one, Baby Bear s, was just right. Goldilocks sat in it until a leg broke. Disappointed and tired, she looked for a bed to sleep in upstairs. After trying Mama and Papa Bear s beds, she fell asleep in Baby Bear s bed. When the bears came home and discovered the eaten porridge and broken chair they became suspicious and went upstairs. They chased Goldilocks out of Baby Bear s bed and out of the house.

3 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text 3 Sleeping Beauty Once upon a time in a far away kingdom, a princess was born. The king and queen of this kingdom invited seven fairies to come to the castle and bless their daughter. Living in the castle, however, was a witch, who felt rather perturbed that she had not been invited. After the fairies gave the baby princess their blessings, the witch cast a spell on the girl, declaring the princess would die by pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. Fortunately, one fairy still had enough magic to alter this spell, turning the princess death sentence into a 0- year slumber. The king banished all spinning wheels from the kingdom and protected his daughter. Nevertheless, when the princess became a curious teenager she wandered into an old woman s home and discovered a spinning wheel. She pricked her finger and fell asleep. Thorns and trees covered the tower in which she slept. One day by chance, a prince was passing by on a hunting expedition. He cut through the thorny branches and discovered the princess. He gave her a kiss and she awoke from her slumber. They married and lived happily ever after.

4 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text 4 Jack and the Bean Stalk Jack and his mother were poor and hungry. His mother told him to go into town to sell their cow, because they needed money for food. Along the way, Jack met a farmer who convinced Jack to exchange the cow for a handful of magic beans. When Jack came home, his mother was angry and she threw the beans out the window. The next morning, Jack discovered a giant beanstalk outside his window. He climbed the beanstalk into the clouds where he came upon a giant s castle. Fee, fie, foe, fum, bellowed the giant who didn t like children. Jack recognised the giant as the one who had taken all of his father s money years ago. The giant s wife helped Jack hide from the giant. She gave Jack his father s money, a magic hen and a golden harp. Jack played the harp, which made the Giant fall asleep, so that he could sneak out of the castle. But the giant awoke and began to chase Jack down the beanstalk. When Jack came to the bottom of the beanstalk, he chopped it down with an axe. The giant fell to his death, and the hen laid a golden egg. Jack and his mother had enough money to eat for a lifetime.

5 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text Rumpelstiltskin An old miller went before the King and, trying to impress him, told the King his daughter Rose could spin straw into gold. The King ordered the girl to be locked in a room full of straw. He said she was to spin the straw into gold or her head would be cut off. Rose began to cry, and suddenly a little man with a long gray beard appeared and said, I will help you spin the straw into gold if you give me something in return. The first night, she gave him her ring. The second night, she gave him her necklace. But then she had nothing left to give. The little man wanted to have her first- born child. Rose had to agree or have her head cut off by the King for not spinning straw into gold. The little man kept his promise, and the King made Rose his queen. When Rose had her first child, the little man with the gray beard came to take the baby away. He said he would not take the baby if Rose could guess his name. She had three days to come up with three guesses. Rose sent messengers out to spy on the little man and found out his name was Rumpelstiltskin. And the baby remained with the king and queen.

6 3.1.2 Dominant, alternative and resistant readings Text 6 Hansel and Gretel Hansel and Gretel wanted to help their poor, hungry parents, so they went into the woods in search of food. To ensure they wouldn t get lost, they marked their path by leaving breadcrumbs along the way. After a while, they came upon a little house made of gingerbread. Hansel broke off a piece to eat. Suddenly, the door flew open and an old woman came out and invited them in. She fed them mountains of pancakes and fruit, and then tucked them into bed to sleep. The old woman was fattening them up so she could cook them in her favorite dish: roasted child! She kept the children in a small cell, where she fed them regularly. Because she could not see well, she told the children to stick their fingers out of their cell, so she could feel how fat they were getting. One day Hansel held out a bone instead of his finger. When she entered their cell to check the child s weight, the children escaped. They pushed the old woman into her oven. They filled their pockets with jewels and food and used the trail of breadcrumbs to find their way back home, where they lived happily ever after
