Quick question!! I really love books that take fairy tale or Disney stories and retell them in a new world, or just in a different way. Things like Ella Enchanted, Beauty, After Alice, Daughter of the Forest and more!!

Do you guys have any favorite fairy tale inspired books or fairy tale retellings?

I want to make a list of some of the best ones, and thought I'd ask you guys before I search for them. I'll probably have to make a few lists to cover them all!

the original since I have not found a retelling of Alice in Wonderland land that is not zombies.
Not for kids, but I absolutely LOVE The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and Rapunzel, only Cinderella is a cyborg who loses her foot instead of her shoe at the ball, and the Big Bad Wolf is a sexy ex-cage fighter, etc. Alix Flynn has Beastly and I think some others. A Tale Dark and Grimm, by Adam Gidwitz, retells Hansel and Gretel and other Grimm's tales. I'll probably think of more later:) Oh, The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley!!
oh, and now that I look at your lovely illustration, I see most of these are already there!
@Spudsomma I hadn't really looked into the illustration yet, just found it as a good image for this post. I have been wanting to read the Lunar Chronicles, but haven't yet, so thanks for the reminder! Those all sound great -- I will be looking them all up :)
