9780142425060: In a Glass Grimmly: A Companion to a Tale Dark & Grimm

What really happened when Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water? Well, yes, Jack did break his crown and, yes, Jill did come tumbling after. BUT, they also went on a quest to find a looking glass, which really turned out to be a quest to find themselves. They challenged giants to an eating competition, were drowned by mermaids and were captured by goblins. Did they ever find the looking glass? Well, you'll just have to read this book and find out.

Straight into the New York Times Top 10 - alongside A Tale Dark and Grimm!

A brilliant combination of thoughtful, literary, gory and laugh-out-loud funny.

'This second foray is even more enjoyable than the author's acclaimed debut' Publishers Weekly

The Grimm fairy tales are celebrating their 200th anniversary this year and the continued interest in them is more apparant than ever.

Book Description Puffin Books, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This companion to A Tale Dark & Grimm (Dutton, 2010) echoes the tone and style of the earlier installment as it follows Jack and Jill on their adventures. Gidwitz pulls from many fairy tales, including Jack and the Beanstalk , The Frog Prince , and The Emperor's New Clothes , to weave his story together and makes up some lore of his own along the way. It is an enjoyable, creative read rife with fairy tale violence and injury befalling the intrepid heroes and their clever, cautious, talking three-legged frog sidekick. The adults in this novel are not kind or loving, leaving the children to their own devices. Ultimately, the cousins find happiness in themselves and each other as they learn to really see themselves.". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0142425060
