We had a unit in my English class about myths. We looked at the original versions of the myths (such as Persephone, Rapunzel, and Oedipus). Afterward, we looked at these myths being retold in different forms like poetry or prose and compared how the structure and language of the retellings impacted the messages they were trying to emphasize. Our English assignment was then to choose a myth to "reimagine" and write it in poetry or prose form. As seen from the title, I chose the myth of Thumbelina, originally written by Hans Christian Andersen, and rewrote it as a poem from Thumbelina's perspective with my own twist.

With his homelife in sudden slobbery upheaval, Puss takes on a new case: A little lady who puts a new spin on 'little' that's gone missing.
Warning: The story of Thumbelina involves a lot of rude, and edible, small animals. Puss is tragically a slave to his nature, but that won't stop him from solving the case.
