Fairy tales were our first stories that we learned by heart; our parents read them to us as children, and because of this, we slowly learned the power of the story, the basic narrative structure of beginning, middle, and end. Just because we're adults doesn't mean we should set these stories aside. There are also so many great "adult" fairy tale writers out there--from Neil Gaiman to Karen Russell to Kelly Link. We want to know what your favorite childhood fairy tale is, and whether or not you've read any modern-day ones lately.
