it was ok
bookshelves: bluebonnet-2011

I was looking forward to reading this book because I do so much with fairy tales and fractured fairy tales with my students and as a school, we LOVE this genre. So, when I realized that a fractured fairy tale version of Hansel and Gretel was on this year's Bluebonnet list, I was excited.

Unfortunately, my excitement was short-lived, as this book was a terrible disappointment to me. It was just not what I expected or wanted and I will not be really pushing it this year (although I know that a lot of the 3rd & 4th graders will pick it up and read it on their own because it is a fractured fairy tale AND it's a Bluebonnet). I just thought there were too many strange things, situations were never really resolved, and too many loose ends. Like I said, a disappointing read for me.
