I do think that this series is required reading for those who like fairy tales and especially clever retellings. Each volume ups the ante on the grim aspect of fairy tales. Each book seems less appropriate for a younger audience. Gidwitz is obviously a teacher, and he understands the young minds he writes for.

I do think that this series is required reading for those who like fairy tales and especially clever retellings. Each volume ups the ante on the grim aspect of fairy tales.

Each book seems less appropriate for a younger audience. Gidwitz is obviously a teacher, and he understands the young minds he writes for. I mean, he has to in order to teach them. There is way too much dark violence and subject matter for kiddos younger than twelve, to my thinking.

Also, the cruelty of adults against children in this book is highly disturbing. I also think this is the saddest out of the series.

Wow, the things that our young protagonists are faced with really tore at my heart. And how the cruelty and neglect they experienced warped something inside of them. There are some great life lessons here. Family, loyalty, honor, integrity, kindness, and making moral decisions. These kids have to raise themselves and that leads to some issues when they are faced with adult moral decisions.

Johnny Heller truly is an awesome narrator. He deserves it. Not just in horror or sadness, but in hilarity, because this book involves all those emotions. I am biased. I love fairy tales a lot. Yet, I think that increases my standards for fairy tale retellings. Gidwitz is a writer who clearly loves fairy tales just as much as I do, if not more.

He respects the genre, and it clearly is a huge creative influence on him in crafting these marvelous books that add very much to the cultural relevance of fairy tales. If you have not checked these out and you like fairy tales, what are you waiting for? It had a decent concept but the way they presented everything was kind of unappealing to me.

A Tale Dark and Grimm

Like any good storyteller, Gidwitz lures his readers into his tale. His light touch, humorous use of direct address "if such things bother you, we should probably stop right now" and tongue-in-cheek warnings make the reader want to take up his challenge and turn the page, no matter what. Gidwitz weaves a number of original tales into one satisfying, daring story of a brother and sister making their way in a world where adults, particularly parents, are unreliable, untrustworthy and in desperate need of forgiveness. The children learn to rely on each other as they make their way through many trials and eventually back home.
