A Tale Dark & Grimm

By Adam Gidwitz
From the Newbery Honor-winning, New York Times bestselling author--with cover and interior illustrations by Dan Santat!
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 awesome.
For more twisted tales look for In a Glass Grimmly and The Grimm Conclusion.
