    Adam Gidwitz makes a sparkling debut with a work that children are sure to request again and again. Not content within the confines of their own tale, Hansel and Gretel skip out on their story and jump into eight other classic Grimm fairy tales. But all is not sugarplums and candy houses. Danger lies ahead, and Hansel and Gretel have much to learn about avoiding witches’ ovens and making sure “The End” isn’t their end.

    Emily says: "Funny retelling of Grimm's tales"
    "Scary, Spooky Fun!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Tale Dark and Grimm the most enjoyable?

    The narrarator made the story come alive! It was like listening to a family member tell a spooky story around a campfire. My nine year old daughter laughed out loud, was incredibly grossed out and very much entertained. She couldn't wait for the long ride home from school so that we could listen to more of the story!


    What other book might you compare A Tale Dark and Grimm to and why?

    It was a little bit like Harry Potter meets fairy tales gone bad. Very entertaining!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene that was our favorite was how Gretel opened the secret door to the mountain.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We would have loved to!!!
