You’ll recognize Hansel and Gretel as the heroes of A Tale Dark & Grimm, which is a collection of fractured fairy tales. But it’s not just their familiar story. They take you on a tour of nine other lesser know Grimm tales, too. Be warned, however, and don’t expect all sweetness and light …no sir! You’ll get big doses of gore, gruesomeness, and dark humor, along with the usual adventure. If you don’t mind a little bit of horror in your “happily ever after,” you will like this book.
