Enter the FAIRY TALE 2.0 Giveaway!3:06 PM
I love how companies like Disney are taking the old, traditional fairy tales we grew up with and are making them fresh. An example of this is the new FAIRY TAIL 2.0 initiative, which is celebrating the passion and lessons of fairy tale with new, updated storylines and settings!
An example is Once Upon a Time: Red's Untold Tale, perhaps one of the most imaginative retellings I've seen. Here's the summary:
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.This book is written by Wendy Toliver, the award-winning author of four YA novels: The Secret Life of A Teenage Siren, Miss Match, Lifted, and now Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tail.
There are three books that are part of the FAIRY TALE 2.0 movement, which also includes A Whole New World and A Frozen Heart.
