I was recently inspired kwa ShaylaBelle07 to write a orodha of some of the retold Fairytales that I have read. Unfortunately I can not remember them all for I have been kusoma ndoto vitabu since about 5th grade and I am 30 now. In the past few years I have become greatly entranced kwa retold fairytales, I upendo to read different versions of some of my inayopendelewa stories. And I like to get versions geared for my children as well. Maybe I will put up a orodha of retold fairytales children’s version at another time. I hope I can remember them all, if not I will maybe make another orodha 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 au 4 vitabu 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 vitabu in the series:

-The Fairy-Tale Detectives
-The Unusual Suspects
-The Problem Child
-Once Upon a Crime
-Magic and Other Misdemeanors
-Tales from the kofia
-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 siku 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? au Jack, the erstwhile giant killer, now working at the Big & Tall store?

My Opinion: The onyesha Once Upon A Time slightly reminds me of this series. If wewe 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 zaidi 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 kwa Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens features Ella, Snow, Rapunzel, and Rose as they attend princess school. They become Marafiki and face challenges with their many adventures. There are 7 vitabu 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 vitabu 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 au 10 yr olds enjoying.

Mercedes Lackey...I upendo this Author! She has writes some of my inayopendelewa ndoto vitabu and she has done some wonderful retold fairytales! I especially upendo two of her series!
link

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 zaidi adult oriented and a lot zaidi serious then the first ones I listed. But I upendo her style!

Elemental Masters

-The moto Rose (Beauty and the Beast)
-The Serpent's Shadow
-The Gates of Sleep
-Phoenix And Ashes
-Wizard of London
-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 mwandishi of a few Fairytales that I have read. One of the vitabu was made into a movie kwa 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 Kiss in Time
Sleeping Beauty wakes up in the twenty-first century and goes to South beach, pwani 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 zaidi 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:
Once Upon A Time is a series of novels published kwa Simon Pulse, an imprint of Simon & Schuster[1]. The Once Upon A Time novels are usually new retellings of fairy tales featuring a teenaged heroine. Some of the recurring themes and subjects in the vitabu are romance, magic, fantasy, intrigue, finding true love, and good conquering over evil in the end.

-The World Above kwa 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 wewe do not like one it does not mean wewe 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 vitabu Dark and disturbing.

Mette Harrison:
link

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

Mira, Mirror

wewe know the mirror from the Snow White fairy tale. au 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 ndoto vitabu 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 kwa the evil fairy Pernicia on her name-day. But Katriona aliiba 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 vichimbakazi and all the wanyama in the realm may not be enough to save her.

Rose Daughter
When their father's business fails, three sisters songesha 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' upendo but the upendo that makes wewe and keeps wewe whole . . . there aren't many roses around any zaidi because they need zaidi upendo 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 nyumbani with the tale of an Enchanted ngome 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.

My opinion: These vitabu were amusing and interesting. A great read for Juvenile girls.

Melody shut her eyes tight as she held her ball in her face, preparing for the car to crash into her. But the car's aim never came. Melody felt herself being swept off her feet kwa a pair of slender and soft arms. Somebody saved her! When she was gently dropped onto the sidewalk on her feet, her eyes opened. Melody found herself face to face with a young woman who bended her knees to meet Melody's level. She is a petite woman with long red hair and baby blue eyes. The young woman was also, wearing a purple tank juu and a green skirt, upindo with matching shoes.

"Evy, I have a bad feeling about this..."
"Don't be such a baby, Jason!"
I pushed a mti branch out of my way, and I could finally see it.
"This is it!" I said, pulling Jason beside me. "This is the meeting place of the last of English monarchs!"
Standing before us, was a ramshackle cottage with shattered windows covered in mold, with weeds surrounding every inch of it.
"This is where English monarchs hold their secret meetings?" Jason asked.
"Well, back then, their meetings weren't very confidential, so they had to hold them in a discreet place." I took a step over a mossy log and walked toward...

kusoma some of the comments, I realized there's much thing that people are wrong about princesses, well, at least I think they're wrong, so in association with princesslullaby, JonnaSe, lepetitsouris and CureDiana I tried to cover them as objective as possible. Thanks princesslullaby for awesome pictures.

5.Cinderella
I think cinderella is one of the best role models of the princesses. The thing she was aliyopewa the most flack for was not standing up for herself and not running away from home. C'mon, run away from home? And go where? Secondly, she's not gonna leave this house she grew up in. It's the one of the few things she has left of her father and mother, it has so many memories, if she left it she would feel guilty and disloyal. Also, people blamed her for not standing up to her step-family. Just because she doesn't start screaming at them doesn't mean she doesn't...

My Least inayopendelewa princess is Aurora.I don't hate her au dislike her at all I'm just neutral about her. Many of wewe say that she doesn't have a personality but she does. Many of wewe just don't see it au may not like it. I found out that Aurora is a romantic person. Well....that's it. I mean wewe can't blame...

"Who are you?" alisema Phillip, starting to emerge from the tub.
I gasped and scrambled onto my feet. I was too chicken to talk to him, so I ran out of the bathroom.
But I'm not a lucky girl. I slipped on water, and slammed hard on the linoleum floor.
Damn it, I muttered, standing again. Phillip was in his vazi now.
I couldn't take any chances. I ran out of the bathroom, back in the hallway again. My only options were the staircase that had a sign that read "Dungeon", and a shiny armor.
I picked the armor. I stuffed the camera in my pocket and climbed in, making sure the kofia, chapeo closed tightly...

I opened the door to my boss's office. "Mr. Anthony, I got the note signed kwa my mother. What's next?" I sat down in the plastic chair in front of his desk.
He dug through his dawati and pulled out a black suitcase. "The task begins," he announced, handing it to me.
My moyo stopped. I felt the cool texture of the black leather under my palm. "What's inside?"
"Your suit, a camera, notepad, laser pen, and a bar for defense," he counted these...

Ariel stared into her brother's eyes, trying to follow what her sister had said. "Belle's right, did wewe get contacts?"
"Were wewe guys recently brainwashed? Because you're actually agreeing with each other," Charming said, confused. He waved the subject off. "So, um, who's up for a dance?" He and Anastasia quickly left the room.
Ariel looked into the terrified eyes of her younger sister. "His eyes were green!"
"And Anastasia looks like Mom!" Belle added.
"He swore that he'd never marry a woman that looked like Mom," Ariel breathed.
Melody put her sketchbook down for once. "I think the two of...

Snow white:
I don't know what it is that I don't like about her, But I think it's because I can relate to her the Least. I don't Wait for my prince, I'd go after him!

Gaston pulled the dagger back out. "I've been meaning to make an offer with wewe princesses." He snapped his fingers, and the cage began to rise over the pit of green slime.

cinderella smoothed back her hair. "This is terrible! Now we have to find Snow White, too!"
