This trailer made me giggle out loud. "Once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome!" LOL I think I am going to have to see if I can hunt down a copy. It sounds fun, and it looks like it won a bunch of honors.
A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
Genre: Children's Folk Tales, Action & Adventure (ages 9-12)
Book description (from the publisher):
In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches.
Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.
