Adam Gidwitz, author of A Tale Dark & Grimm is visiting our school next week.
Our school librarian writes "he weaves Grimm stories into a wild - and at times extremely frightening - adventure for brother and sister team Hansel and Gretel. The world seems pitted against them...will they survive when they are up against warlocks, the Devil and dragons that look nice one day and not the next?! "
This is not your Disney fairy tale (although I am a big fan of Mickey and his brood). This looks dark and terribly exciting. The only sad part is that it is recommended for grades 3 - 6 so my kindergarten class will have to miss out. Although you can be sure I will try to get away to watch him read in person.
