This fairytale is inspired by the tales I have read in LLEA 353. Having gained the knowledge of the structures and elements of a fairytale immensely helped in creating my own. “The Bonsai Tree in the Bento Box” is significant to my Japanese heritage and celebrates cultural differences. This tale also calls attention to the value of friendship and loved ones especially in times of hardship and change. Life is mysterious and unpredictable in nature; yet beauty can always grow from difficult situations.
