A Tale Dark and Grimm So you think you know all about Hansel and Gretel do you?
How the poor little kids had a mean stepmom who made the dad let them loose in the big bad forest only for them to end up at the witch's gingerbread house... Well that's not exactly the whole story. The success of Grimm on TV may have made me predisposed to like this book but I was unprepared for the wonderful wit and gory retelling of a famous Grimm Brothers tale. Spoilers throughout alert the reader to send the little ones in the other room because the story is going to get pretty gristly and it does. Adam Gidwitz provides a fun read for families (minus the little ones!) with giggle out loud humor.
