    We do stuff on subverting fairy tales: Revolting Rhymes and Shrek.

    Why subvert them? If they've 'done' them a thousand times before, why are you doing them again? Rather than 'subvert' them, why not do something different? If these stories are new, why spoil then?

    I'm not sure what you mean

    We look at the stereotypical fairytale, look at how Roald Dahl subverts this to create humour, the kids have a go at this themselves, we look at how Shrek does this and write a film review of it.

    Writing subversive and conspiratorial stories in the style of Roald Dahl have been quite successful, I think. Tim Rylands has done some inspiring stuff with this.
