Fractured Fairy Tales

Fractured Fairy Tales seem to become more popular every year. They make great read-alouds for young children, and are fun teaching tools for story structure and character development.

Below is a list of picture book fractured tales, for novels and original story summaries and much more I suggest you go to SurLaLune Fairy Tales. It is by far the most comprehensive fairy tale website around.
