Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but whenever I start a new project-whether it involves zombies, fairies, or any other crazy things I can come up with-I get obsessed with anything and everything that has to do with the subject I'm working on. I scour for movies, TV shows, articles, books, anything.
So, ever since I started writing Devour-and also because I just can't seem to get enough of fairy tales in general-I've been searching for other material to use for inspiration and to maybe give me some ideas for plot points and things. There doesn't seem to be a lot of other material concerning Hansel and Gretel, so I've been looking at other fairy tales as well for some help. So far I've found the complete collection of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, and two different movie versions of Little Red Riding Hood (one of which looks totally creepy by the way, that I can't wait to watch! :)) And surprisingly, after looking on several different bookstore websites, I haven't been able to find hardly any YA books that are modernizations of fairy tales! Isn't that strange? It makes me sad that there aren't more out there. :(
As you can see, the pickings, so far, have been pretty slim, so I wanted to ask you: Do you have any good book/movie/TV show recommendations that are modernizations (preferably for a YA audience, since YA is what I'm writing), of Hansel and Gretel or any other fairy tales?
I'd love to hear your recommendations in the comments! :)
