Today, February 26th, is National Tell a Fairy Tale Day, and what better way to celebrate then by featuring YA fairy tales that make the grade.
How do fairy tales maintain their popularity? Year after year they stay with us, the same story adhering to the modern age. Take Snow White for instance: the release of Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsmen tells us she has not gone out of style.

Fairy tales are not just about happily ever after, they are a medium for storytelling, for learning, and for transforming.
