Twicetold Tales: Fairy Tales for the Real World

Chantella dreams her singing will take her away from chores and grant a Cinderella-worthy happy ever after. Whereas Cassie walks through the streets in her red coat, looking over her shoulder as a dark figure named Caleb Woolf follows her… In this collection of short stories, normal kids find themselves lost in the woods or locked in a tower – situations that might seem familiar. But fairy tales have a dark side and not all have a happy ending…

School Library Journal - Marybeth Kozikowski, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY

"These retellings zip along, thanks to sharp dialogue and smart updates that feel fresh. Lamoreaux's full page manga-esque illustrations, rendered in grayscale with punches of red, are plentiful and will keep reluctant readers engaged. Strong back matter in each volume includes a history of the original story and writing prompts for readers to create their own twice-told tales. A fine choice for keeping traditional fairy tales alive." - School Library Journal

"Take a classic fairy tale character, add a contemporary urban setting with a significant sinister plot twist, and the result is one of these tales. Action is detailed and expanded; dialogue is modernized and made edgy, as are the characters’ actions. . . .If your school includes a writing unit featuring rewriting and parodies, this set could serve as examples." - Library Media Connection
