"Things Are Looking Grimm, Jill" is a middle grade adventure in which Princess Jill (of Jack and Jill fame) is summoned from her home kingdom in the Land of Mother Goose to solve a problem in the neighbouring land of Grimm. Things are done a little differently in Grimm than in Mother Goose’s territory and Jill has to navigate some, let’s call them cultural discrepancies. There’s a lot more cannibalism in Grimm for instance (although this is children’s fiction so it’s not that intense).

Princess Jill, from Mother Goose land, is a little difficult but she has some wonderful qualities as well. When she gets a mysterious letter to come help save the land of Grimm, her adventurous side can't resist. Jill uses her brains and her courage as well as help from some friends she meets along the way to save the day. I think kids would enjoy identifying the fairytale and Mother Goose characters throughout the story.
Mother Goose meets Grimms fairy tales. Not my style!
