Fairy tales are growing up, starting with everyone’s favorite chilly sisters: Anna and Elsa. As the kick-off of a new collection of Fairy Tale 2.0 stories, A Frozen Heart retells the story of Frozen in a fresh new, totally unexpected way. It’s the Disney favorite you know and love, but with a sophisticated twist. To celebrate the release of Frozen Heart, we have a special giveaway for you, so read on!
Arendelle Grows Up in A Frozen Heart
A Frozen Heart is told in alternating chapters from both Anna’s and Han’s perspective, exploring in depth the couple’s back story. The book is part of Disney-Hyperion’s new Fairy Tale 2.0 series, as mentioned above. Author Elizabeth Rudnick does a fabulous job of pulling you into a familiar story, then turning it upside down by showing you a glimpse of the world that you never saw before. Don’t worry, it’s not just a retelling of a children’s book using “big girl words,” it’s a whole new tale that expands on characters you already love.
Don’t take my word for it though, check out a pretty hefty excerpt of A Frozen Heart! I do mean hefty, too, you can read the first 59 out of 304 pages right now! I am in the middle of the book now and really enjoying it. I can’t wait to read the other Fairy Tale 2.0 books too! I always love new twists on my favorite stories, or a chance to see what happened behind the scenes, so to speak.

What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney’s Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie’s lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.
ONCE UPON A TIME: RED’S UNTOLD TALE
by Wendy Toliver
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.
