Thanks for the recommendations (Beauty should be in my catalogue, but is currently on loan, and you certainly can't go wrong with Robin McKinley).
I have a collection of short stories that are fairy tale retellings edited by Ellen Datlow called Ruby Slippers, Golden Tears.
And an old favorite is Briar Rose by Jane Yolen.
I'm really glad there's a group such as this on LT. I keep coming back just to see new titles that I can check out.
The Fire Rose for Beauty and the Beast. This is in my top 10 of all time.
The Serpent's Shadow - Snow White
The Gates of Sleep - Sleeping Beauty
Phoenix and Ashes - Cinderella
The Wizard of London - Snow Queen (Don't bother with unless you are a completist.)

Marina Warner's From the Beast to the Blonde is a more enjoyable non-fiction approach to fairy tales, not only does it include analysis of the classic works, Warner also looks at recent authors like Angela Carter.
Finally, for comic fans, I'd suggest the series Fables. It's about the characters from various fairy tales driven out of their own worlds and forced to take residence in ours. Most of it deals with it's own plot - rather than than those of the original tales - but it has fun takes on many of the characters, does include some more direct retellings, and some looks at what might have happened to the characters after the tales.
I second the Fables graphic novels, anything Gregory Maguire and/or Angela Carter.
Also, Jasper Fforde--his Nursery Crime Division books, The Big Over Easy and The Fourth Bear are great reads.
