Teen Read Month Special: Our Favorites - Tiger Lily

Today's Teen Read Month favorite is from Anne, our Teen Librarian at the Oak Harbor Library who always is reading something interesting:

"The retelling of fairy tales has always been popular, but this year brings us several different tales retold including Robin Hood and Jack the Ripper. One of my favorites has been Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson, which revisits the story of Peter Pan. Tinkerbell narrates the story of Tiger Lily and how she falls in love with Peter, despite knowing the trouble this will bring (especially since she has been promised to another man in her village). Even though many familiar characters are here, erase the memory of the Disney movie from your mind and get ready to read a complex, emotional, and somewhat dark telling of the tale of Peter Pan and Tiger Lily."

If you love fairytale retellings as much as both Anne and I do, you should also check out our book list Fairytales Revisited!
