I was recently inspired da ShaylaBelle07 to write a lista of some of the retold Fairytales that I have read. Unfortunately I can not remember them all for I have been Leggere fantasy libri since about 5th grade and I am 30 now. In the past few years I have become greatly entranced da retold fairytales, I Amore to read different versions of some of my preferito stories. And I like to get versions geared for my children as well. Maybe I will put up a lista of retold fairytales children’s version at another time. I hope I can remember them all, if not I will maybe make another lista at a later time. I am going to put up the Authors, Book titles, and a synopsis of the books, as well as my opinion of the ones that remember what I thought of them (I can read up to 3 o 4 libri a week so it is hard to remember sometimes. Some are just a mix of Fairytales and some actually focus on one well known story.

The Sisters Grimm Series (By Michael Buckley)
There are 7 libri in the series:

-The Fairy-Tale Detectives
-The Unusual Suspects
-The Problem Child
-Once Upon a Crime
-Magic and Other Misdemeanors
-Tales from the cappuccio
-The Everafter War

link

Here is a summary of the first book:
In Book One of the series, we meet two sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, who have been sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm. From their first giorno in Ferryport Landing, the sisters begin to unravel a mystery that reveals a family secret. Sabrina and Daphne learn they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous book of fairy tales is actually a history book. Snow White, the Three Little Pigs, the Big Bad Wolf—they're all alive and now neighbors of Granny Relda in this community of Everafters, as magical folks like to be called.

But life is not a fairy tale in Ferryport Landing. Someone has set a giant loose on the town, and it's up to the sisters Grimm to stop the giant and find the Everafter behind its murderous rampage. Is it Mayor Charming, formerly Prince Charming, who may have plans to get his kingdom back? o Jack, the erstwhile giant killer, now working at the Big & Tall store?

My Opinion: The mostra Once Upon A Time slightly reminds me of this series. If te do not want a serious read it is nice. There are some dramatic moments and some interesting twists with the fairytale characters, but it does seemed geared toward a più juvenile crowd. Maybe 9 to 13 yr olds would enjoy them more.

Princess School series (by Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens)
The Princess School series da Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens features Ella, Snow, Rapunzel, and Rose as they attend princess school. They become Friends and face challenges with their many adventures. There are 7 libri in the series:

1: If the Shoe Fits
2: Who's the Fairest?
3: Let Your Hair Down
4: Beauty is a Beast
5: Princess Charming
6: Apple-y Ever After
7: Thorn In Her Side

My Opinion: I found these libri nice light entertainment and I enjoyed seeing some of the fairytale princesses in school together and being friends. This is another Juvenile series that I could see even 9 o 10 yr olds enjoying.

Mercedes Lackey...I Amore this Author! She has writes some of my preferito fantasy libri and she has done some wonderful retold fairytales! I especially Amore two of her series!

Five Hundred Kingdoms
-The Fairy Godmother
-One Good Knight
-Fortune's Fool
-The Snow Queen
-The Sleeping Beauty
-Beauty and the Werewolf (really, really want to read this)

My Opion: These are not necessarily a fairy tale retold, but a mash up of fairytales in a fairytale world. It is più adult oriented and a lot più serious then the first ones I listed. But I Amore her style!

Elemental Masters

-The fuoco Rose (Beauty and the Beast)
-The Serpent's Shadow
-The Gates of Sleep
-Phoenix And Ashes
-Wizard of Londra
-Reserved for the Cat
-Unnatural Issue (I have not read this one yet but want to)
-Home from the Sea (this one has not came out yet)

My Opinion: Each of these is a different fairytale retold and some are easier picked out then others. I enjoyed them all, but once again they are very serious and very adult oriented.

Alex Flinn: She is a good autore of a few Fairytales that I have read. One of the libri was made into a movie da the same name: Beastly. I have not read all her books, but I have read these:
link

-Cloaked
A poor shoe repair guy finds adventure and romance with a beautiful princess, six talking swans, two giants, and one magical cloak.

-A baciare in Time
Sleeping Beauty wakes up in the twenty-first century and goes to South spiaggia in this humorous fish-out-of-water romance

-Beastly
Ever wonder what it was like for the Beast? Find out in this contemporary retelling.

My Opinion: I have read più interesting books, but they were okay. They were fine amusement and I read through them pretty quickly. I would say junior high and high schooler's would enjoy them as well.

Once Upon A Time novels:

-The World Above da Cameron Dokey (A Retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk and Robin Hood, published June 8, 2010)

My Opinion: I have not read all of these, but have read most of them. They are very interesting and I would say high school age and up would enjoy them. They are all from different authors and done in different styles, so if te do not like one it does not mean te would not like one of the others.

Gregory Maguire: He wrote the book Wicked about the Witch from the Wizard of OZ, but he has written some retold fairytales too.

Confessions on an Ugly Stepsister (Cinderella retold) my opinion: I found this book very dark and a bit disturbing)

Mirror Mirror (Snow white retold) my opinion: I can not remember what I thought of this book, but I have found all his libri Dark and disturbing.

Mette Harrison:
link

I have only read this one, but there are other fairytales da this autore at the site above.

Mira, Mirror

te know the mirror from the Snow White fairy tale. o do you? One hundred years later, she is still hanging on that wall. This is her quest to be human again.

My opinion: This was a twisted and kind of sad book. I found myself feeling sorry for the mirror. It was a quick read and a juvenile read.

Robin McKinley
link

She has written some very good fantasy libri and some are retold fairytales:

Spindle's End
All the creatures of forest, field and riverbank knew the baby was special. She was the princess Briar-Rose, cursed da the evil fairy Pernicia on her name-day. But Katriona ha rubato, stola her away to the small village where Kat lives with her aunt, and they raise the princess as if she were their own. No other human, not even Rosie herself, knows her true identity.
But Pernicia is looking for her, and two village fate and all the animali in the realm may not be enough to save her.

Rose Daughter
When their father's business fails, three sisters sposta to a tiny neglected cottage far away from anything they have ever known. Beauty tends the awkward, unknown, thorny plants that surround it, and when they bloom the following summer an old woman tells her: "Roses are for love. Not silly sweethearts' Amore but the Amore that makes te and keeps te whole . . . there aren't many rose around any più because they need più Amore than people have to give them to make them flower."
And when Beauty takes her father's place at the terrifying Beast's palace she discovers that the Beast's beloved rose garden is dying.

Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
Beauty has never liked her nickname. She is thin and awkward; it is her two sisters who are beautiful. But what she lacks in looks she can perhaps make up for in courage.
When her father comes home with the tale of an Come d’incanto castello in the forest and the terrible promise he had to make to the Beast who lives there, Beauty declares she must go to the castle, a prisoner of her own free will.

My opinion: I can not remember what I thought of these particular books. But I believe I enjoyed them.

I dedicate this poem to all of you, who like myself, still believe. I Amore te all!


We’ve been fascinated with them since we were little girls.
Back when we wore our hair in ribbons and curls.
We longed to go to a fancy ball and wear a pretty dress.
Now our lives are full of worry and stress.
All we wanted was to be like the Princess in our preferito story,
A place filled with nothing but glory.
A place where true loves baciare can break the most evil of spells.
A land of happily ever afters and wedding bells.
Where the glass slipper always fits,
And a handsome Prince who finds it easy to commit.
It’s...

One day, gelsomino was in a bad mood. She decided some brightly-colored jewelry might cheer her up but she couldn’t decide which color to wear. Just then a arcobaleno appeared. The colori made gelsomino feel happy. “I know! I’ll wear a arcobaleno jewelry,” she giggled. The only color jewelry gelsomino didn’t wear was her pearl bracelet. “It’s too plain,” she thought, putting in her pocket. gelsomino wanted to mostra Aladdin colorful look and headed to the market. She notices how happy everyone was. “Wow, your jewelry looks great,” detto Aladdin. “It’s as cheerful as the rainbow!” Jasmine...

The Disney Renaissance, one if the most successful times for WDAS from the late 80s to the late 90s (or to some people, the mid 90s).
 (1989-1999)
(1989-1999)

 (1989-1994)
(1989-1994)

This era is known for its amazing musicals, superiore, in alto notch hand drawn animazione using the computer, many awards, and great critical and financial success (most of them), and the movie that is known to start this fantastic era is The Little Mermaid, which I think gets too much credit for starting the Renaissance, and I know many will disagree, but hear me out.

The Disney Renaissance was the time where a lot of money was made, which...

8. Jasmine

FHG Ranking: #9
PPG Ranking: #9
Average Score: 9

FHG: She looks like an alien in my opinion. She has a big nose and extremely large eyes. She just looks weird nearly the whole time. I could only find one good shot of her. ONE. There is only one heroine who is fuglier than her, and is overrated in beauty A LOT. *cough*Meg*cough*.

PPG: Okay,...
