Thank you so much for your awsome stories. Just a little suggestion. Please be ware of stereotypes that you would inadvertently reinforce by some stories. For example portraying stepmothers as mean creatures. I think we should feel responsible on what we transfer to our children as the facts of this world. Thank you so much again for bringing fun and happiness to our homes.
