really liked it
bookshelves: childrens-fiction, summer-reading
Read in May, 2011

The "true" story of Hansel and Gretel as they wander through five lesser known Grimm tales, including "Faithful John", "The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs", and "The Robber Bridegroom". As in the original (pre-Disneyfied) tales, there is no shortage of horror and bloodshed. Kids, especially fans of the Sisters Grimm books by Michael Buckley, will love this. I’m looking forward to taking it on my summer reading school visits.
