About This Item

Title: A Tale Dark and Grimm. In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind and beyond the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches. Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after. Why did I read this book: I remember hearing about how awesome this book was when it came out last year, but never really had the time or drive to pick it up and get it out of the TBR.

This book is great -- funny, gory, and full of lesser-known Grimm tales. Gidwitz ties all of the stories together by making some alterations to the story of Hansel and Gretel, in order to let the two of them be the hero and heroine of each of the other tales they travel through, and the book as a whole. This book reminded me of the musical Into the Woods in all the best ways -- highly recommended to anyone who enjoys fractured fairy tales. Plus, there's a fun little "insider" nod to Narnia that I thought was really cute! Using the more bloody tales of The Brothers Grimm as a foundation, the reader is guided through the stories of childhood adventure of Prince Hansel and Princess Gretel. Running away from their murdering, yet well-intentioned parents, the siblings meet the witch who fattens and cooks children and the father who desperately wants one daughter more than his seven sons.
