San Diego Comic Con 2014 June 24

I'll be speaking on a panel called Fairy Tale Remix, with Shannon Hale (Ever After High series) moderating, and these authors of fabulous fairy tale-inspired books: Marissa Meyer (The Lunar series), Tony DiTerlizzi (The Wondla series) Cornelia Funke (The Mirrorworld series), Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die), John Peck (The Charming series), and Ben Tripp (The Accidental Highwayman). These authors have  been inspired by everything from Grimm fairy tales to the Wizard of Oz.

Below is the link to Marissa Meyer's site, with more info:

The darker, more gruesome Grimm fairy tales, such as Bluebeard, The Robber Bridegroom, and The Juniper Tree, appeal to me, because the heroines manage to survive nightmarish ordeals. And I love Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen and The Little Mermaid, which are beautiful stories.

So...what's your favorite fairy tale? And why?
