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.
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.
