This is another excellent article by Prof. Grenby of Newcastle University, from the BL website (whose collection of articles is a very useful resource), exploring the relationships between fairy tale and children’s literature. It’s fascinating in any case, but would be very useful for anyone researching contemporary adaptations of fairy tales in YA fiction.
