Fantasy and Fairy tales for the youth of all ages

A Listmania! list by Cathirine J. Sandlin (Indiana, USA)
The list author says: "These books in this list really aim for the young and young adult reader who love to read about fantasy and fairy tales. No matter how old you are, the books on this list are enchanting, engaging, and keep the reader wanting more. Right now, youth stay away from reading because it isn't fun like their video games and computers. However, I think it is important to turn them to books that can hold their interest and these books do just that."
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (Picture Puffin)
1.  The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (Picture Puffin) by Lane Smith
The list author says:
  "This isn't your typical fairy tale book.  It's all the fairy tales that you know and love with a twist at the end along with a lot of crazy artwork.  It's memorable and I'm sure both you and your kids will love it!  No matter your age, you have to appreciate Smith's creativity and take on fairy tales."

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
2.  The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Lane Smith
The list author says:
  "Just like the Stinky Cheese Man, this book gives the story of the three little pigs with a twist.  Nobody ever really asked the wolf for his side of the story and it turns out that everything was just a big misunderstanding!"

Abhorsen (The Old Kingdom)
7.  Abhorsen (The Old Kingdom) by Garth Nix
The list author says:
  "The Abhorsen series is a series where there is a lot of magic and a lot of adventure.  These books may require the reader to really enjoy reading seeing as each book is fairly long.  However, don't let the length detour you!  The adventurous story will keep you engaged from page to page."
