A Tale Dark & Grimm
A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz is absolutely all that it says it is. This is no ordinary Hansel and Gretel story. Will middle school kids love it? Absolutely! It is definitely dark and grim, but the added touch of humor will keep the reader amused. Haven’t you wondered about the true story of Hansel and Gretel? Gidwitz is here to tell you that there is so much more than what you have been told. Hansel and Gretel will have to face witches, their own weaknesses, the devil himself, and a deadly dragon on their adventure to find normal, caring parents. I love Gidwitz’s wit in adding the narrator’s voice which addresses the reader intermittently throughout the entertaining story. Checkout the video below.
