Whether writing for very young readers or for young adult audiences, contemporary re-visions of fairy tales and other classics of children’s literature are a popular genre. Examples include works as diverse as Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s humorous True Story of the Three Little Pigs picture book, told from the wolf’s point of view; L.L. McKinney’s action-packed A Blade So Black, a rewriting of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, set in present-day Atlanta; and Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, which casts Cinderella as a teenaged cyborg in an alternate Asian futurescape. Come and explore different ways of crafting successful fractured tales!
