Inspired by Fairy/Folk Tales (Not Retellings)

Books that are inspired, or pay homage to, traditional fairy tales, folk tales, and myths but are not retellings of the stories.

Examples are the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede, which contain many nods to fairy tales, and The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, where a number of traditional fairy tales show up in very different ways.
