Pretty fun - and gruesome - mixture of fairytales. ( )

As gruesumely enjoyable as the first ( )
  JazMinderr | Jul 31, 2014 |
This book is entertaining to read and hard to put down. The author tells his own version and combination of Grimm fairytales. The story is often interrupted by the narrator giving it a fun feeling. Grades 3-7. ( )
  bouchk | Mar 13, 2014 |
A darker version of the Princess and the Frog.

The narrative is crisp, brief, and brisk.

Characters are stereotypical and somewhat stunted, but this is a short, so there isn't a lot of time for development.

Overall, an interesting read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525425810, Hardcover)

More Grimm tales await in the harrowing, hilarious companion to a beloved new classic

Take caution ahead--
Oversize plant life, eerie amphibious royalty, and fear-inducing creatures abound.

Lest you enter with dread.
Follow Jack and Jill as they enter startling new landscapes that may (or may not) be scary, bloody, terrifying, and altogether true.

Step lively, dear reader . . .
Happily ever after isn't cutting it anymore.

In this companion novel to Adam Gidwitz's widely acclaimed, award-winning debut, A Tale Dark & Grimm, Jack and Jill explore a new set of tales from the Brothers Grimm and others, including Jack and the Beanstalk and The Frog Prince.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:02:38 -0400)

Frog joins cousins Jack and Jill in leaving their own stories to seek a magic mirror, encountering such creatures as giants, mermaids, and goblins along the way. Based in part on fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.
