IF YOU CAN READ THIS WITHOUT FEELING A WARM BUBBLE OF HUMAN JOY IN YOUR HEART I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO FOR YOU

(Also I was so confused for a while because the OP totally missed a number in the thread but the story is so precious I forgive them)

This is adorable and hilarious!

Okay, so I found out more about this story/tale.

First, it is originally an Armenian folktale called “Clever Anaeet”. But I haven’t found more information unfortunately about the original story.

There is a version of it though in “The Fabrics of Fairytales” by Tanya Batt. It is actually a collection of various fairytales and is relatively short (80 pages according to Goodreads).

However, I think this post is referring to the picture-book adaption of the same story,
“A Weave Of Words” by Robert D. San Souci.

I hope this helps anyone who wants to read it for themselves or look into this further.

@rejectedprincesses don’t you have an entry about this woman in your book or on your website? I feel like I read it somewhere…

Yep, right here! It’s based off an Armenian fairytale called Anahit, collected in 1881 by 

Ghazaros Aghayan.

This Twitter thread has been going around and I’ve been tagged a couple times – I suspect I need to do tweetstorms like this for RP entries, instead of just a couple pics and a link to the entry.
