What was your favorite fairy tale as a child?

Did you read the original text, or perhaps it was a fairy tale featuring a Disney Princess. With this collection from Scribd’s Editorial staff, you can re-live the experience.


Start with Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen  – it’s a classic and perhaps the foundation of many modern folks stories.


Next, try out something for pure entertainment. If you’re like us, and you’ve already read Gregory Maguire’s Wicked, try-out the much-acclaimed  Son of a Witch – his follow-up bestseller.


If you want some more authentic fare, Le Mort d’Arthur is one of the original tales of King Arthur, upon which The Once and Future King, and many others, are based. It was written by Sir Thomas Malory while he was imprisoned, and is one of the first times that the Arthurian legend was penned in English.


Finish-off with something completely modern and adult. Black Swan, White Raven is a collection of some of today’s most creative and accomplished storytellers, spinning modern, adult, and provocative renditions of classic tales.
