Description

The tales are reworked to fit a modern day world, but the lessons, both new and old, behind each tale have not been lost in the least. Now, much like the original Grimm fairy tales, these tales have not been sugar-coated in the least.

Francesca Lia Block, whose Weetzie Bat novels have often been called pop fairy tales, here turns to the real thing for some very different imaginings of Snow White, Thumbelina, Cinderella, Rose Red and Rose White, and other tales.

I love fairy tales retold, but frankly this book is just bad. The author spends a lot of time describing tactile sensations . I'm writing this after reading the book for the 5th or 6th time. Of the nine fairy tales rewritten here, a few stand out above the rest: Snow Charm Bones Beast.

I love fairy tales retold, but frankly this book is just bad. The author spends a lot of time describing tactile sensations and just assumes you will fill in character development yourself. even though she's completely divorced the characters from their original story. There's no reason to identify with the story which makes reading it a chore. Block makes these tales different, almost unrecognizable. My only issue is that sometimes her narration gets repetitive.

By Francesca Lia Block. Tiny was protected from the outside world in the gated garden full of roses, irises, and azaleas, orange, lemon, and avocado trees, and she didn’t mind. The garden got more radiant and abundant and redolent every day that she watched it and, as her mother said, blessed it, although she didn’t know how she did that, really.

With language that is both lyrical and distinctly her own, Francesca Lia Block turns nine fairy tales inside out.

Escaping the poisoned apple, Snow frees herself from possession to find the truth of love in an unexpected place.

A club girl from L.A., awakening from a long sleep to the memories of her past, finally finds release from its curse.

And Beauty learns that Beasts can understand more than men.

Within these singular, timeless landscapes, the brutal and the magical collide, and the heroine triumphs because of the strength she finds in a pen, a paintbrush, a lover, a friend, a mother, and finally, in herself.

I love these modern retellings with her lyrical style. Sad still, and often troubling, but also beautiful. I think I need to brush up on some of the originals, because I wasn't familiar with all of them. I want there to be more though I love the stories she picked.

Clever and whimsical prose reinvent these classic stories for young and old alike!! I just wish there were more of them!

Short easy reads. Some profanity.

Loved when I was in middle school but now at 25 I find it lacking. A fun retelling of stories to read once but nothing more.

Stays true to the Grimm Fairy Tales while updating them.

Well, I will start by saying that I have always been a big fan of Francesca Lia Block. She deals with the "dirtiest" of topics-cutting, drugs, abuse- in ways that make them sound dreamy. I'm writing this after reading the book for the 5th or 6th time. Of the nine fairy tales rewritten here, a few stand out above the rest:
Snow
Charm
Bones
Beast.
Block makes these tales different, almost unrecognizable. My only issue is that sometimes her narration gets repetitive. It's as if many of the stories are being told by the exact same person, in the exact same voice. Still, I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes modern fairy tales. You won't be disappointed.

I love fairy tales retold, but frankly this book is just bad. The author spends a lot of time describing tactile sensations and just assumes you will fill in character development yourself...even though she's completely divorced the characters from their original story. There's no reason to identify with the story which makes reading it a chore. Several of the stories aren't retelling so much as finding a comparable real life horror (like trafficking and rape) and giving them the most comparable fairy tail name. They had potential but in my opinion they're just poorly written. I really don't recommend it.
One of the most magical books I've ever read. I reread it every winter, I recommend it to anyone who loves fairytales and magicz
