February 26th: Tell a Fairy Tale Day

Tell a Fairy Tale Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated on February 26th that encourages people to listen to, read, and tell their favorite fairy tales from around the world. We love the classics but it is also fun to check out some of the interesting and quirky re-telling of fairy tales such as:

Grounded by Megan Morrison (Juvenile Fiction, J MORRISON)  Rapunzel believes she is the luckiest person in Tyme, because Witch tells her so, but when Jack climbs into her tower to steal an enchanted rose, he hints that Witch is not telling the whole truth and Rapunzel, driven by her anger and fear, descends to the ground for the first time.

The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer (Juvenile Fiction, J COLFER) Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, twins Alex and Conner leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.

Do you have a favorite fairy tale?
