The Brother’s Grimm – The Fisherman and His Wife
- What three wishes would you make upon meeting a magic fish? Would the wishes be for yourself, for someone else you know, or for others in the world around them. Now make three new wishes, one in each of these categories (you, someone else, the world). Discuss your reasoning behind each of your choices.
- The fisherman comments, “It will not end well. It will not end well. Asking to be archbishop is too shameless.” What does he mean by this, and what is he afraid will happen?
- Discuss whether or not this fairy tale has a moral. Can a story have more than one lesson? Why or why not.
