How to Fracture a Fairy Tale


I jumped at the chance to read this early. I love all fairy tales, even those who have been re-imagined with new endings. Jane Yolen is a masterful storyteller and keeps the stories dark yet charming which is a difficult balance. There are stories from Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm, Native American stories, Greek Mythology, Japanese folk tales, Celtic mythology and more.

They remind of the old Fractured Fairy Tales. There is a Snow White located in West Virginia, and many other tales from around the world. I read an advance copy on my kindle and I’m pre-ordering it to add it in to our geography studies.
