In a Glass Grimmly

In a Glass Grimmly is a delightful book. Well, it’s a bloody, sweaty, gory book, but it’s still delightful. It is a bunch of twisted fairy tales woven together to make a horrid but amazing book. This gruesome story is about Jack and Jill who are cousins. Jill is the daughter of a vain, mean queen who tells her she has to be beautiful. Jill got tricked into wearing nothing.  She runs away.  Jack is a boy who wants to be popular and king of all the boys that tease him. The boys told him to trade his cow (who doesn’t produce milk anymore) for one magic bean. But, it was a trick.  Jack and Jill meet a lady who will grant their wish if they get the seeing glass for her. A tale of adventures follows them. 

This book is a blood-curdling, edge-of-your-seat, outstanding book.  It’s a book you would want to go on and on and on and on and on.  By the same author of A Tale Dark & Grimm, you would wish there was more.
