The Lovereading4Kids comment
A witty blend of traditional and original, this follow up to A Tale Dark and Grimm takes a lively look at some of the darker moments of fairy tales. There are castles, and giants and mermaids and goblins. And Jack and Jill who apparently only went up the hill to fetch a pail of water are soon caught up in it all. Fairy tales will never seem quite so safe after this original and bold re-take of them.
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.
This second foray is even more enjoyable than the author's acclaimed debut Publishers Weekly
