The Little French Princess by Jean-Jacques Rousseau was also very appealing to her.
Anne was obsessed with the story, and was drawn to its magical qualities.
She was also fascinated by fairy tales written in the 16th century, particularly the tales of The Great Fairy Queen and The Little Red Riding Hood.
Anne’s First Fairer French Fairytale When she was in her teens, Anne M learned that The Little Dutch Fairy was about a Dutch peasant girl who is married to a white man and has to find a way to escape her husband.
She eventually decides to leave her husband and move to America to become a woman.
She writes the story in the first half of the 18th century.
Anne and the Little Dutch fairy story Anne M was drawn in by this story, which she read as a young child.
It became her first fairy tale.
Anne learning French Fairytales The story about a young girl who escapes from her husband in The Little White Woman by Jean Baudrillard, inspired Anne to write The Little English Girl by Thomas Mann.

Anne having fun with The Little Snow White The Little Welsh Fairy Tales by J.M. Barrie was also a favorite for Anne.
She read the story as a little girl and loved the story of the Welsh fairy queen, Gwenhwyfar, who lived in a village called Mungarth.
Anne loved Gwenhwys tale and loved to make the story more beautiful.
