Twisted Tales

Although not strictly storytelling resources, these children's books provide examples of how traditional fairy tales can exist in many forms (some, cultural variations, and others, authored literary versions) and the texts that will be found in many primary school classrooms and libraries. If you would like a preview of any of these books, most of them are recorded (in part, if not whole) or reviewed on YouTube.
