Create-a-Cover Challenge

I thought it would be fun to kick off this year's festivities with a cover game.  The challenge is to create a book cover (or a movie poster, if you're so inclined) for a fairy tale of your choice.  You're welcome to create multiple covers or do multiple tales.  You can be traditional or modern, whatever inspires you - you can even do a mash-up!

As an example (and because I love doing these, and can't get enough of this set - you know, the one where I got the button?), here's my Little Red Riding Hood cover:

This challenge will run the entire length of FTF; when you're done with your cover, just come back here and post a link to it.
Use any image that strikes your fancy, for any tale you choose - just make sure that if you use any images that you don't own rights to, that you credit them in your post!

If there are enough entries, at the end of FTF I will gather them all and we will vote on a winner, and THERE WILL BE A MYSTERY PRIZE.  =D
Have fun and get creative!!
