Display: Fairytale Retellings

Fairytale Retellings Display

Fairytale Display - 1
Fairytale retellings are so popular right now in children’s and young adult fiction. In fact, fairytale retellings have become timeless right along with the fairytales they seek to emulate. Some of my favourite books from childhood, Ella Enchanted and North Child, are fairytale retellings. This display seeks to highlight both the old retellings hiding on the library’s shelves and the abundance of new titles currently being released.

Fairytale Display - 2 This display features a blue background of crepe paper. The tree branch and rose bush were cut from black cardboard. I then printed and cut the roses, leaves and apples onto which the book covers are stuck. I used a Cricut machine to cut the wording, cinderella shoes, castle and compass.

Fairytale Display - 3While these are just a very few of the available fairytale retelling titles, they reflect what the library currently has. For a larger range of titles you might like to check out Epic Reads’ Epic Chart of 162 Young Adult Retellings, which covers fairytales, classics, mythology and Shakespeare.

      Thank you so much. I have so much fun creating the displays, but it’s nice to hear that others like them too. There are some brilliant fairytale retellings and there are some great ones to be released early next year. My pick of the new ones would be The Shadow Queen by C.J Redwine. It was surprising and enjoyable. Thanks again for your comment.
