A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz

Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm (and Grimm-inspired) fairy tales. An irreverent, witty narrator leads us through encounters with witches, warlocks, dragons, and the devil himself. As the siblings roam a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind the famous tales, as well as how to take charge of their destinies and create their own happily ever after. Because once upon a time, fairy tales were <i>awesome</i>.<br /> <br /> Unlike any childrens book Ive ever read. [It] holds up to multiple rereadings, like the classic I think it will turn out to be. -<i>New York Times Book Review</i><br /> <br /> An audacious debut thats wicked smart and wicked funny. -<i>Publishers Weekly</i>, starred review<br /> <br /> Addictively compelling.-<i>School Library Journal</i>, starred review<br /> <br /> Charming and inventive . . . the perfect haunted book. -<i>The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i><br /> <br /> One of the years best childrens books.-<i>The Virginian-Pilot</i
