Descripción del producto


"Unlike any children's book I've ever read. [It] holds up to multiple readings, like the classic I think it will turn out to be." (New York Times)

"Gidwitz has created a sharp, funny story ­- a fairy tale with teeth." (INIS)

"An audacious debut that's wicked smart and wicked funny." (Publisher's Weekly, starred review)

"Addictively compelling" (School Library Journal, starred review)

"Told with a delicious wit...brilliant and terrifying" (LoveReading4Kids)

Reseña del editor

Reader: beware. Warlocks with dark spells, hunters with deadly aim, and bakers with ovens retrofitted for cooking children lurk within these pages.

But if you dare, turn the page and learn the true story of Hansel and Gretel - the story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses and outwitted witches.

Come on in. It may be frightening, it's certainly bloody, and it's definitely not for the faint of heart, but unlike those other fairy tales you know, this one is true.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas New version of the old school--HILARIOUS 2 de noviembre de 2010
Por Caitlin Snyder - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Instead of going with the trend of softening Grimms' tales, Gidwitz throws caution to the wind and bloodies them right back up. By the second page, I was cracking up. By the third, I knew this would be the book I read to my 8, 11, and 13 year old nieces and nephews this Thanksgiving.

Gidwitz's style of addressing the readers and warning them about the terror that's coming lightens the story, moves it along and really connects the reader to the speaker. It's amazing. It also serves its stated purpose of warning the smaller children about impending violence. It's tongue in cheek, but it's also an actual tool to let parents know what's coming up.

I'm a children's librarian, and I'm so excited to get my copies (yes, I ordered multiple, that excited) in. I finally have something cool to recommend to my middle grade readers who want something quick and a little scarier than normal fantasy.

Gidwitz uses Hansel and Gretel as the protagonists of the collected tales, drawing them all together into one cohesive history of these strong, unlucky twins. For the most part, you can assume just about everybody dies at some point, but where it really counts they come back to life. Riot. Absolute riot.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Hilarious, wise, sophisticated 6 de noviembre de 2010
Por Justin Wyatt Dunham - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura|Compra verificada por Amazon
Wow, did I enjoy reading this. Gidwitz is, first of all, a fantastic storyteller. The tale is pretty complex, and also fairly horrifying, but it moves at a rapid pace and is constantly enlivened by clever jokes, allusions, and tongue-in-cheek "warnings" about what's to come. These last will appeal to bloody-minded readers of all ages, by which I of course mean everyone.

And yet all the while, Gidwitz seems to be communicating this profound wisdom about childhood, and parents, and families, and anything you can think of that's related. I know extremely little about children's literature and especially little about the Grimm's tales, so I can't say much from that perspective. But as an adult, the poignant meditations on growing up, and on what parents can and can't be, struck me among many, many other things.

In fact, this happened so many times that I wondered whether this book is secretly written primarily for adults. I will not be surprised if I return to this when I have my own children, as a guide to their world and my role in it. Highly recommended.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Horribly dark and violent 12 de febrero de 2013
Por Jennifer Hoff - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
My son, who is 8, was introduced to this book and came home scared and afraid. After reading half of it myself, I can see why. The narrator in this story repeatedly warns of impeding violence and the describes the violence in such a way that it is gory and creepy. I can not imagine any child not being affected by the level of violence in this book. Take, for example, this excerpt from the book,
"He invites girls to this house, and he reaches down their throats and rips their souls from their bodies, and he traps the souls in cages in the form of doves, to let them rot under his eaves. Then he hacks the girls' bodies to pieces to make our supper."
"He threw the girl on the oaken table, and from a nearby cupboard produced a filthy iron cage. Then he reached his hand into the girl's mouth until his arm was buried deep in her throat. Slowly, painfully, and with great struggle from the girl, he pulled forth a beautiful white dove. The dove fought the young man as he shoved it in the filthy cage and slammed the door shut."
"The girl's body was still.

Now you might want to close your eyes.

He lifted an ax that hung on the wall, and Gretel, peering through a gap between a filthy pot and a filthier pan, watched her handsome, wonderful, funny friend hack the girl's body into bits and toss each piece into the boiling cauldron. His blunt butcher's knife rose and fell, rose and fell. He licked the blood from his hands and sent piece after piece sailing into the pot."

Excerpt From: Gidwitz, Adam. "A Tale Dark and Grimm." PENGUIN group, 2010-10-25.

Simply not a book for young children. In fact, it was too much for my taste and I couldn't finish it.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This worked for me: intrusive asides and all 12 de enero de 2011
Por M. Knapp - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I always check out the 1-star reviews, to see why the person didn't like the book. Sometimes it is as unrelated as shipping problems, or Kindle issues. In this case, the reviewer didn't like the intrusive narrator. I'm not a big fan of author "asides" but in this case, I think it works. Gidwitz re-tells original Grimm fables (in all their bloody glory) with frequent asides admonishing timid readers to close the book, or banish younger listeners from the room. The gruesome level is fine for most 4th or 5th graders (IMHO) and the "beware--this gets awful" tone serves to keep these younger readers feeling brave and excited -- that they are still reading the "big kid" book.

As the asides are mostly short and set in a different type, I suppose a reader could skip them, but I found them humorous and enjoyable.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Brilliant! Your Kids (And You) Will Love This Book! 10 de febrero de 2011
Por Amazon Customer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Normally I have to struggle with my 10-year-old son to read anything other than the sports scores, but this book he read in two days! Not only that, he would talk about it with me in the mornings (yes, actually converse!). I recommended it to him after reading it myself. Hands down, one of the best children's books I've read in a long, long time. I laughed out loud repeatedly and couldn't wait to pick it up again after an interruption (darn dinner!) Hellishly hilarious with just enough "ick" factor to make it grossly cool.
