Modern Fairy Tales

Test

Fairy tales are some of the most enchanting and enduring stories we read as children. We love fairy tale curses, happy endings, evil queens, big bad wolves and the morals at the heart of the story. But, whilst they may still be captivating, even some of the best fairy tales haven’t aged well…

Modern fairy tales bring them up to date, retelling the familiar stories with independent princesses that don’t need rescuing, evil queens who are not what they seem and children outwitting witches and wolves. Fairy tale retellings can be dark and twisted or witty and irreverent takes on the classics. 

Check out our list of modern fairy tales for every age from picture book to teens. There are retellings, lost stories, contemporary fairy tales and books about fairy tale princesses with a difference.
