In honor of “Tell A Fairy Tale Day” (yes, there is such a day, and it actually is today), take a look at the fairy tale mash-up, which is a story that recombines elements or characters from multiple fairy tales to create a new story.

Some examples from the Teen Zone include:

Beauty (YA MCK) – Beauty & the Beast.

Beastly (YA FLI) – Beauty & the Beast told from the Beast’s viewpoint.

Book of Lost Things (YA CON)  Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and Rumplestiltskin are given new, often nightmarish life in this book.

Cinder (YA MEY) – The first volume of The Lunar Chronicles, a cyberpunk version of Cinderella.

Kill Me Softly (YA CRO) – Set in a place where Grimm’s fairy tales come to life.

Enchanted (YA KON) – Features a talking frog, Cinderella’s dropped slipper, and Jack’s beanstalk, among other components of various tales.

Need volunteer hours??  If you are in 7th through 12th grade and would like to volunteer at the library, you need to attend two FIT programs BEFORE YOU CAN VOLUNTEER.  Sign-up for the Summer Library Club volunteer table will be at the May 17, 2013, FIT meeting.  If you have never attended one of our teen programs, there's still time to qualify for summer volunteering.   Our March 15 FIT program will be: Stick With Us: Duck Tape!  The April 19 program is an interative mystery, "In the Shadow of the Vampyre."  Both require registration: either online or at the Youth Services Desk.
