The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brilliantly, in this third part of his ‘Grimm’ series, Adam Gidwitz takes the lid off some familiar fairy tales and turns them into something hilariously gruesome instead. Despite the gore, the jokes come thick and fast. Here Jorinda and her brother Joringel deal with their own difficult lot before setting out into the most difficult territory of fairy tales. Versions of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and many others all end badly! A rollicking read for anyone who doesn’t mind an unhappy ending.

Synopsis

The Grimm Conclusion by Adam Gidwitz

The third sinister story in the Grimm series delves even further into the dark heart of the fairy tales you thought you knew and loved. A brother and sister must venture through kingdoms and forests haunted by demons and ogres, all the while seeking their way home. And they must face the most frightening monster of all: death. Enter, if you dare, a world filled with cruel stepsisters, ghastly suppers and a terrifying man known as the Devil.

Reviews

‘Hair-raising and stomach-churning’ Publisher’s Weekly

‘Entertaining story-mongering, with traditional and original tropes artfully intertwined’
Kirkus Reviews

‘Gory and awesomely dark’ School Library Journal

Praise for A Tale Dark and Grimm

‘This debut YA novel is getting a lot of well-deserved attention. Gidwitz manages to balance the grisly violence of the original Grimms’ fairy tales with a wonderful sense of humour and narrative voice. Check it out!’ Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series

‘Unlike any children’s book I’ve ever read. [It] holds up to multiple readings, like the classic I think it will turn out to be’ New York Times

‘Gidwitz has created a sharp, funny story – a fairy tale with teeth’ Inis

Praise for In a Glass Grimmly

‘Imagine Lemony Snicket does Fairy Tales. Great stuff’ Peters Books, Book of the Week

‘This second foray is even more enjoyable than the author’s acclaimed debut’ Publisher’s Weekly

‘A creative romp through traditional and tradition-based story-scapes, compulsively readable and just as read-out-loudable’ Kirkus Reviews
