Love a good action and adventure tale? Crave creativity, humor and heart in your stories? A Tale Dark and Grimm is truly the book for you. Gidwitz re-invents the fairy tale in his mesmerizing novel which tells the familiar story of Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel like you have never heard it before. Together, this famous dynamic duo travel into the depths of the fairy tale forest, outsmarting a cannibalistic witch, evading a murderous hunter, and challenging a ferocious dragon along the way. But, as Gidwitz says in the beginning of his novel, “Reader : beware;” A Tale Dark and Grimm is a bloody, grisly, tale. This is not the bedtime story to lull a little one into sweet dreams! Gidwitz’s sardonic, witty narration will have you laughing aloud while biting your nails in fear.
Fairy Tale lovers, rejoice! Gidwitz has given us a new classic to admire. Be sure to come to Hooray For Books on Friday, November 19th at 3:15pm to meet Adam Gidwitz himself! To reserve a copy of A Tale Dark and Grimm, call 703-548-4092!
