Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm (and Grimm-inspired) fairy tales. An irreverent, witty narrator leads us through encounters with witches, warlocks, dragons, and the devil himself. As the siblings roam a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind the famous tales, as well as how to take charge of their destinies and create their own happily ever after. Because once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome. (from barnesandnoble.com)
I was never bored and it was extremely interesting. It was perfect. Yes [I would recommend this to a middle schooler] because it’s imaginative (but it wouldn’t be good for a little sister or brother!).
It was scary and really cool. Nothing [could be improved] except it should be more scary. It was good so yes [I would recommend it] because it was awesome.
