Super excited! Just sent my questionnaire in!

So what's some of everyone's favorite non-Disney adaptations of fairy tales, just out of curiosity?
I recently have really enjoyed some of the "fractured fairy tales" style of books coming out for elementry-middle grade students, namely James Riley's "Half Upon a Time" series and Christopher Healy's "Hero's Guide" series (also known as the League of Princes series). I tend to lean toward the funnier, more light-hearted interpretations myself.

Jackson Pearce does fairy tale retellings for her books. She has done Red Riding Hood (The Sisters Red), Hanzel and Gretel (Sweetly), and the Little Mermaid (Fathomless).  Also there is the Lunar Chronicals by Marissa Meyer (Cinder, Scarlett, and Cress). I haven't had a chance to read any of these but I have The Sister's Red and Sweetly on my Kindle (thanks to bunny1kenobi) and plan to read them soon.  Wink

Hmm...looks fun.
I'm sort of disappointed in my fairy tale knowledge and have been wanting to read all the Grimm tales for years.  Maybe now's a good time.  Any other book suggestions?

Oh man... I was leaving room in my swap puddle to not overwhelm myself, but... I want to do this one. *grin* I'm with Ludi... I may have to wait until closer to the end of sign-up to see how my current swaps are progressing along and, to think about what fairytales I want immortalized.  Grin

 I hope you both make it in. You both would be wonderful additions to the swap.  Grin

 The only other retelling book I can think of off the top of my head would be Wicked. But whatever you make doesn't have to be based off a specific retelling. I am hoping to have a more interpretive swap.
