As referenced by member Rubbah in another thread, these are a special type of re-tellings.

She refers to "when characters from different stories meet, like in the fables comics, or the sisters grimm series."

I immediately thought of the Steven Sondheim play "Into the Woods" which my family loves; and the picture books by Janet Ahlberg and her husband, Allan. The Jolly Postman and its sequels.

I enjoyed telling, and I think our kids enjoyed reading, The Jolly Postman for its interactiveness (is that a word?), though they were a little impatient to get on to the next letter. I haven't read it yet, but I gather that the new Cornelia Funke book may also come under the heading of mash-up.

And I kinda remember this from my days as a childrens librarian (sigh!) and it was lots of fun:

Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook

and Who Is It?

I think I remember that Anno did a take off of this theme(?)

are you talking abouit Reckless? It has more fairytale tropes than specific fairytales. I quite enjoyed it and hope she continues the story, becasue I think theres more to play with in the world she's created.

Reckless is indeed it! Look forward to reading it.

Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley have been very popular with my students.

Enchanted, by new author Alethea Kontis mixes many stories into one, very successfully, I think. The main story is The Frog Prince, but there are allusions to many others.

This is quality writing, here. There is tension, beautifully written characters, a rich back story which is only hinted at. Highly recomended.
I listened to the audio, and now I'm reading the print version to more fully savor the language.

The Hero's Guide to Saving the Kingdom by Christopher Healy is a fun mashup.
