When the Main Character Becomes Dinner!!!

Is it just me, or is anyone else out there disturbed by stories like The Gingerbread Man and The Runaway Latke - seasonal tales in which the protagonist gets eaten?
Why not transform those stories into Pinocchio type tales, in which a little fairy comes along, whacks the cookie and the latke with her magic wand, and transforms them into children - even if those children smell suspiciously delicious!
Happy Holidays to Young Writers Everywhere.

  1. I completely agree -- main characters should not be eaten!
