In a Glass Grimmly by Adam Gidwitz
Bloody, tragic, and dark...fairy tales shouldn't be bedtime stories. As with A Tale Dark & Grimm,
Adam Gidwitz has borrowed from numerous fairy tales, threading the dark
and dangerous aspects together to form a brand new story. Jack and Jill
are cousins and while they do go up a hill, they also climb a magic
beanstalk and hang out with a talking frog. With a snarky narrator and a
fairytale moral, In a Glass Grimmly is sure to entice reluctant readers and thrill those who know their fairy tales.
