Of course she wants to eat them, but will she succeed this time? Adam Gidwitz is in a league of his own with this hilarious and inventive take on the classic fairy tales told by the brothers Grimm. Can Hansel and Gretel find out if they are capable of taking charge of their own fates?

When it comes to the world that these characters live in, you have to watch where you step. There are dangers lurking around every corner. Enter a world where all sorts of things live.

Anything seems possible here, and indeed much is possible. Plant size gets huge and towers over your head, amphibians can serve as royalty, and scary creatures with all manner of fangs and claws lurk in the forest and scurry through the trees. It can be a creepy place, but Jack and Jill must do their best to take on all of these dangers and face them as they come. They really have little choice in the matter, and the new landscapes that they enter into may just be the most terrifying that they will ever come across in their lives— assuming that they live that long.

Jill and her brother Jack will have to navigate their way carefully through this reality if they ever want to truly make it out.

A Tale Dark & Grimm Series

Like any good storyteller, Gidwitz lures his readers into his tale. His light touch, humorous use of direct address "if such things bother you, we should probably stop right now" and tongue-in-cheek warnings make the reader want to take up his challenge and turn the page, no matter what. Gidwitz weaves a number of original tales into one satisfying, daring story of a brother and sister making their way in a world where adults, particularly parents, are unreliable, untrustworthy and in desperate need of forgiveness. The children learn to rely on each other as they make their way through many trials and eventually back home. It involves a young man who invites Gretel, despite the warnings of the author and every character in the story, to his home in the woods where he has lured many young women before.
