The Lovereading4Kids comment
A brilliant addition to this original series which sprinkles fairy stories with a new kind of fairy dust that turns them upside down and inside out. Familiar stories such as The Emperor’s New Clothes which is one of the funniest stories of all – and the one which invests children with the real power – are given a fresh new twist. Although sometimes re-imagined, no punches are pulled in how the stories unfold but Adam Gidwitz adds humour and meaning in a thoroughly delightful way.

In a Glass Grimmly by Adam Gidwitz
What really happened when Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water? Well, yes, Jack did break his crown and, yes, Jill did come tumbling after. But, they also went on a quest to find a looking glass, which really turned out to be a quest to find themselves. They challenged giants to an eating competition, were drowned by mermaids and were captured by goblins.
Did they ever find the looking glass? Well, you'll just have to read this book and find out. A perfect sequel to A Tale Dark and Grimm. Reader: beware. Child-eating giants, haunting mermaids and tricksy goblins lurk in these pages.
The Grimm fairy tales are celebrating their 200th anniversary this year and the continued interest in them is more apparent than ever.
Enchanting and enchanted ... A lively read Books for Keeps
This second foray is even more enjoyable than the author's acclaimed debut Publishers Weekly 100 Magnificent Children's Books of 2012 -- Elizabeth Bird School Library Journal
Gidwitz is back with a second book that, if possible, outshines A Tale Dark and Grimm School Library Journal
Imagine Lemony Snicket does Fairy Tales. Great stuff Peters, Book of the Week
