The Young Young Critics’ Club (Y2C2), Perrot’s book club for 4th- and 5th-graders, has declared that its favorite book of 2010/2011 is….
A TALE DARK AND GRIMM
by Adam Gidwitz
In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches. Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.
