Why are Folktales and Fairy Tales Strange?

USC Digital Folklore Archives

Currently, I’m rewriting and editing my next novel. While rewriting one chapter yesterday, I decided that I wanted to include an Argentine folktale. I want the main character to share a folktale, but even though both of my parents are Argentine, I don’t know many folktales. In fact, I don’t know any.
