We asked Tynga to discuss her favourite book as a child and she chose La Petite Sirene (The Little Mermaid). Take a look at what she had to say...
**********When Ashley & Christie contacted me to be part of this event, I knew I had to participate! I read lots of books when I was a kid, then lost the reading love in High school & College because when they made us read it was so boring. I finally fell in love again with books just 2.5 years ago with Twilight. No, you can’t laugh =P
So I wasn’t sure if I would talk about The Little Mermaid or The Beauty and the Beast. They were my favourite books & movies, and well I’m gonna talk about the Little Mermaid. Or maybe I should say La Petite Sirène. Those of you who know me already know, but for everyone else, I’m French Canadian, so my Little Mermaid adventure was a French one =)
I remember watching the movie countless times with my huge graphic book in my lap and turning the pages as the story on the screen progressed. I picked the VHS so many time out of the library that my mom filmed the TV playing the movie… yes you read right.. so I could have a copy at home. It was crappy, the sound sucked, but I watched it everyday lol Luckily, I had the real hardcover copy of the book so I was in heaven!
Arielle was somewhat of a role model for me. She was always nice with her friends, and I wanted to sing like her. I recall doing, God knows how many times, this exact scene in the bath HAHA.Oh and what can I say about the Prince? I’m sure every little girl wanted an Eric of their own. I was so sad when to poor Arielle lost her voice and couldn’t seem to let Eric know how much she loved him, but her perseverance paid off in the end!
Writing this post got me wondering if I still have the book somewhere at my parent’s place. I know I still have the puzzle but I find myself wondering about the book. I’ll have to check it out, so I can hold on to it for my own kids *g*
I feel old talking about the good old times like that lol. Thank you so much guys for reading the ramblings of an old 25 years old girl *winks* and thank you very much A&C for inviting me =) It’s greatly appreciated and I had lots of fun!
