A sort of fairy tale. Generally intended for children and also grown-up children like me. I'd like it to work read aloud, right? Also does the mixture of old and new work?

How Prince Marmaduke... is, as `CrumpetsHarvey herself notes, a sort of fairy tale. ( Featured by neurotype )

The mixture of old and new is weird, and I like it a lot! :D That's how I managed to get through the whole story so easily! :nod:

I think it works in these circumstances. It was pretty funny and starred an unlikely hero, one of my favorite kinds. Nice.

Super Congrats on the DD!

I love it and am now going to make my friends read it.
It reminded of how I always pictured fairy tales should be =]

Nice work. All I can say is that if a kid asks me for a story, I'll tell this one. And if the kid asks me where I got it, I'll say it's a classic. :D Unless you want me cite you, of course.

I loved it and I would have adored a fairy tale like this growing up :la:
The mixture of old and new works wonderfully - I don't think there's any way you could improve it, to be honest. Well done and congrats on the DD

Hey, I just wanted to say, the old and the new works splendidly to bring in something entirely original and funny! I read this out loud to my sister...we're both sitting at our kitchen table on our computers, and we couldnt help but laugh at poor Marmaduke's circumstances. Wow, what an interesting spin on a 'traditional' sounding fairy tale! You kept us well entertained and it was a great start to what will hopefully be a great morning. ;)
Well, anyway, have a great day and stay safe!
Tootles for now! :D

You ever read the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, Patricia C. Wrede? Reminds me a bit of that, very fun and quirky.
