I was recently inspired سے طرف کی ShaylaBelle07 to write a فہرست of some of the retold Fairytales that I have read. Unfortunately I can not remember them all for I have been reading fantasy کتابیں since about 5th grade and I am 30 now. In the past few years I have become greatly entranced سے طرف کی retold fairytales, I love to read different versions of some of my پسندیدہ stories. And I like to get versions geared for my children as well. Maybe I will put up a فہرست of retold fairytales children’s version at another time. I hope I can remember them all, if not I will maybe make another فہرست at a later time. I am going to put up the Authors, Book titles, and a synopsis of the books, as well as my opinion of the ones that remember what I thought of them (I can read up to 3 یا 4 کتابیں a week so it is hard to remember sometimes. Some are just a mix of Fairytales and some actually focus on one well known story.

The Sisters Grimm Series (By Michael Buckley)
There are 7 کتابیں in the series:

-The Fairy-Tale Detectives
-The Unusual Suspects
-The Problem Child
-Once Upon a Crime
-Magic and Other Misdemeanors
-Tales from the ڈاکو, ہڈ
-The Everafter War

link

Here is a summary of the first book:
In Book One of the series, we meet two sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, who have been sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm. From their first دن in Ferryport Landing, the sisters begin to unravel a mystery that reveals a family secret. Sabrina and Daphne learn they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous book of fairy tales is actually a history book. Snow White, the Three Little Pigs, the Big Bad Wolf—they're all alive and now neighbors of Granny Relda in this community of Everafters, as magical folks like to be called.

But life is not a fairy tale in Ferryport Landing. Someone has set a giant loose on the town, and it's up to the sisters Grimm to stop the giant and find the Everafter behind its murderous rampage. Is it Mayor Charming, formerly Prince Charming, who may have plans to get his kingdom back? یا Jack, the erstwhile giant killer, now working at the Big & Tall store?

My Opinion: The دکھائیں Once Upon A Time slightly reminds me of this series. If آپ do not want a serious read it is nice. There are some dramatic moments and some interesting twists with the fairytale characters, but it does seemed geared toward a مزید juvenile crowd. Maybe 9 to 13 yr olds would enjoy them more.

Princess School series (by Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens)
The Princess School series سے طرف کی Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens features Ella, Snow, Rapunzel, and Rose as they attend princess school. They become دوستوں and face challenges with their many adventures. There are 7 کتابیں in the series:

1: If the Shoe Fits
2: Who's the Fairest?
3: Let Your Hair Down
4: Beauty is a Beast
5: Princess Charming
6: Apple-y Ever After
7: Thorn In Her Side

My Opinion: I found these کتابیں nice light entertainment and I enjoyed seeing some of the fairytale princesses in school together and being friends. This is another Juvenile series that I could see even 9 یا 10 yr olds enjoying.

Mercedes Lackey...I Love this Author! She has writes some of my پسندیدہ Fantasy کتابیں and she has done some wonderful retold fairytales! I especially love two of her series!
link

Five Hundred Kingdoms
-The Fairy Godmother
-One Good Knight
-Fortune's Fool
-The Snow Queen
-The Sleeping Beauty
-Beauty and the Werewolf (really, really want to read this)

My Opion: These are not necessarily a fairy tale retold, but a mash up of fairytales in a fairytale world. It is مزید adult oriented and a lot مزید serious then the first ones I listed. But I love her style!

Elemental Masters

-The آگ کے, آگ Rose (Beauty and the Beast)
-The Serpent's Shadow
-The Gates of Sleep
-Phoenix And Ashes
-Wizard of London
-Reserved for the Cat
-Unnatural Issue (I have not read this one yet but want to)
-Home from the Sea (this one has not came out yet)

My Opinion: Each of these is a different fairytale retold and some are easier picked out then others. I enjoyed them all, but once again they are very serious and very adult oriented.

Alex Flinn: She is a good مصنف of a few Fairytales that I have read. One of the کتابیں was made into a movie سے طرف کی the same name: Beastly. I have not read all her books, but I have read these:
link

-Cloaked
A poor shoe repair guy finds adventure and romance with a beautiful princess, six talking swans, two giants, and one magical cloak.

-A Kiss in Time
Sleeping Beauty wakes up in the twenty-first century and goes to South ساحل سمندر, بیچ in this humorous fish-out-of-water romance

-Beastly
Ever wonder what it was like for the Beast? Find out in this contemporary retelling.

My Opinion: I have read مزید interesting books, but they were okay. They were fine amusement and I read through them pretty quickly. I would say junior high and high schooler's would enjoy them as well.

Once Upon A Time novels:
Once Upon A Time is a series of novels published سے طرف کی Simon Pulse, an imprint of Simon & Schuster[1]. The Once Upon A Time novels are usually new retellings of fairy tales featuring a teenaged heroine. Some of the recurring themes and subjects in the کتابیں are romance, magic, fantasy, intrigue, finding true love, and good conquering over evil in the end.

-The World Above سے طرف کی Cameron Dokey (A Retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk and Robin Hood, published June 8, 2010)

My Opinion: I have not read all of these, but have read most of them. They are very interesting and I would say high school age and up would enjoy them. They are all from different authors and done in different styles, so if آپ do not like one it does not mean آپ would not like one of the others.

Gregory Maguire: He wrote the book Wicked about the Witch from the Wizard of OZ, but he has written some retold fairytales too.

Confessions on an Ugly Stepsister (Cinderella retold) my opinion: I found this book very dark and a bit disturbing)

Mirror Mirror (Snow white retold) my opinion: I can not remember what I thought of this book, but I have found all his کتابیں Dark and disturbing.

Mette Harrison:
link

I have only read this one, but there are other fairytales سے طرف کی this مصنف at the site above.

Mira, Mirror

آپ know the mirror from the Snow White fairy tale. یا do you? One hundred years later, she is still hanging on that wall. This is her quest to be human again.

My opinion: This was a twisted and kind of sad book. I found myself feeling sorry for the mirror. It was a quick read and a juvenile read.

Robin McKinley

She has written some very good fantasy کتابیں and some are retold fairytales:

Spindle's End
All the creatures of forest, field and riverbank knew the baby was special. She was the princess Briar-Rose, cursed سے طرف کی the evil fairy Pernicia on her name-day. But Katriona چرا لیا, چوری کی her away to the small village where Kat lives with her aunt, and they raise the princess as if she were their own. No other human, not even Rosie herself, knows her true identity.
But Pernicia is looking for her, and two village fairies and all the animals in the realm may not be enough to save her.

Rose Daughter
When their father's business fails, three sisters اقدام to a tiny neglected cottage far away from anything they have ever known. Beauty tends the awkward, unknown, thorny plants that surround it, and when they bloom the following summer an old woman tells her: "Roses are for love. Not silly sweethearts' love but the love that makes آپ and keeps آپ whole . . . there aren't many roses around any مزید because they need مزید love than people have to give them to make them flower."
And when Beauty takes her father's place at the terrifying Beast's palace she discovers that the Beast's beloved rose garden is dying.

Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
Beauty has never liked her nickname. She is thin and awkward; it is her two sisters who are beautiful. But what she lacks in looks she can perhaps make up for in courage.
When her father comes ہوم with the tale of an enchanted قلعہ in the forest and the terrible promise he had to make to the Beast who lives there, Beauty declares she must go to the castle, a prisoner of her own free will.

My opinion: I can not remember what I thought of these particular books. But I believe I enjoyed them.

My opinion: These کتابیں were amusing and interesting. A great read for Juvenile girls.

Everyone knows that as soon as the damsel marries her very own Prince Charming that she will live happily ever after. People forget that happily ever after gets boring every now and again. My name is Cinderella and yes I married a Prince and became the Princess Bride of his beautiful kingdom. However I was beginning to feel restless.

I am lucky to have such great friends, only last week I met with Tiana, who was visiting the kingdom in which she is princess of, Maldonia. Another fellow princess of France attended the occasion as well, we both shared a carriage and travelled to Naveen's marble...

3. If I Never Knew You (Pocahontas) سے طرف کی the Cheetah Girls
Although this song was cut from the original release of Pocahontas, in the special edition version, Disney decided to put this song back in. It was کہا that this song did not make it in the film because during a special screening, children found it boring. I completely disagree. I think it's one of the most beautiful songs ever. Unfortunately, the Cheetah Girls ruined the song. Not to say that they're bad singers because they can sing, just not this song. They took away from the original magic. It's a song of such love and passion...

10.Tiana's bun from building site
Many people dislike this hairstyle, I have no idea why. Maybe because they, I don't know, wanted to see her hair LOOSE at once. But no, we got another - BUN, yay!

And the person who was really persistent to eliminate this one is: TigerRanma, so I gonna include some of her تبصرے for this one.
 "If آپ don't like my bun, one out of 20, I will kick آپ with this hammer"
"If آپ don't like my bun, one out of 20, I will kick آپ with this hammer"

[FYI: I'm completely cutting out what happens in Pocahontas 2 for my convenience,(not that I don't like Pocahontas 2, but I don't want to bring in مزید than one man for Pocahontas. John Smith seems to be the پسندیدہ anyway.) So this segment takes place right after John Smith's ship leaves for England at the end of the first movie.]

Christopher was happy too her finally has a friend and still hasn't told Cinderella he's the prince, he felt like he must tell her today. He doesn't think she will care about his power but care about him. They care for each other very much. Back to the story Cinderella was danceing in a پھول field all day, she didn't pick any because she didn't want to make the field of flowers any less beautiful. It's now sunset Christopher is going to tell Cinderella he's the prince.

PLEASE READ!! This was a long, hard, highly debated countdown. (hahahaha...i کہا "long" and "hard") On each princess picture, I have a link to the score I think is the best of each princess movie.

 I'm not putting a score for this one. They all suck.

This is what آپ get when آپ replace Alan Menken with Randy Newman. A stupid backround score that's generic and basically an instrumental version of the songs. Even when کرن, رے dies, instead of being sad it was just sort of bland. The only minorly inspiring backround piece was where Tiana & Naveen transformed,...

9) Ariel- Our princess of the ماہ didn't get so far in this countdown. She's bubbly, sweet, and isn't happy with her father's restrictions (Although we learn that there is very good reason for them in The Little Mermaid 3). Some کہا that she was childish, immature, and wouldn't take the job seriously, and with her somewhat reckless decisions and selfishness, most agreed she would make the worst queen out of the princesses.

So back in my junior سال of high school I was obsessed with Tigi Bedhead Products.
 Bedhead products.
Bedhead products.


These are bedhead products. Me and my friend used to be obsessed with hair and obsessed with Bedhead's stuff. We bought their products with ferver. I made a checklist of all the stuff I needed to get. I got close to having the whole collection. Sadly, but probably better for my mental health, I am no longer obsessed with their products like I once was, though I do use some of their stuff still. One دن I was bored in one of my classes and decided to write a tribute to Bedhead Products....

Mulan is strong willed and full of spirit. Disguising herself as a male soldier to protect her Father, she sets out on a great journey of self discovery and of knowledge. Meeting many interesting characters along the way, she falls for her Captain, Li Shang. Later on they discover she is a woman, but she surprises them all سے طرف کی making a comeback and defeating the Hun army in the end. The ending to her story is kind of a let down. Although Shang does follow her home, there’s no sense of passion between them. No romantic kiss یا riding off into the sunset for these two. Voters didn’t...

As آپ can see from my icon-avatar-thingy, I just adore Belle from the bottom of my heart. Why? Oh, only a hundred reasons! But, to make it short, I'll فہرست just a few. :D

I. She Loves Books
Obvious enough. The first couple of scenes of the movie, we could see her talking enthusiastically to the baker about a story she just read. Then, she proceeded to go to the bookstore and borrowed (or as it turned out, given) a book that she read all the way to her home.

Now, this gave positive remark to all young girls out there that they should read and be imaginative like Belle. After all, I, who fell...

Switch #1: Pocahontas and Jasmine

We all know that each Disney princess is beautiful in her own way. And to ensure the beauty of the female leads, animators often drab down while designing the female co-stars to help the leading lady shine. Let's see who fanpop's Disney Princess شائقین voted from least pretty to prettiest supporting character in a princess film. For those wondering, the qualifications for being a supporting character were آپ had to have a line in the film and contribute to the plot somehow which is why only the two of Ariel's sisters that tell Triton that Ariel's in love were counted.

 Cute, black and short

9.Snow White: last as always. People don’t really like her hair “black as ebony tree” probably because of its shortness. Although cute, her hair can’t really compare to others because there’s not much to do with, can’t make any hairdo of it, it can’t float on wind and it always looks like mass of something, not hair.

Hi guys, I decided to write another review on Frozen again after the first one was short, I also attempt to sound frank and straightforward than my first one. Here we go:


Scenery


The scenery reminds a lot of Tangled, except for the fact that it's set in Norway and it really brings a great introduction to Scandinavia through a Disney movie. That I would love to go to Scandinavia, not just Norway.
I'm really happy that Arendelle is set at as a countryside near the sea and the mountains that it reminds me of my time in Salzburg, Austria. As it brings pleasantness and joy to it.
