IN A GLASS GRIMMLY
Not so much a set of retellings as a creative romp through traditional and tradition-based story-scapes, compulsively The author of A Tale Dark and Grimm starts over—sending young Jack and Jill on a fresh quest for self-knowledge through trials and incidents drawn stolen, according to the author from a diverse array of European folk and fairy tales. Injecting authorial warnings and commentary as he goes, Gidwitz ensures that each adventure involves at least severe embarrassment or, more commonly, sudden death, along with smacking great washes of gore, vomit and where appropriate stomach acid. A sly, side-splitting hoot from start to finish. The dreary prospect of spending a lifetime making caskets instead of wonderful inventions prompts a young orphan to snatch up his little sister and flee. To the circus, of course. Alas, the budding engineer barely has time to settle in to begin work on an experimental circus wagon powered by chicken poop and dubbed with questionable forethought the Autopsy.

Just as he did in his first book, A Tale Dark and Grimm , in In a Glass Grimmly, author and narrator Adam Gidwitz teaches readers that the original intent of fairy tales was to offer moral lessons and truths to live by. Without mentioning anything modern such as the pervading influence of media, the cult of celebrity and beauty, or status symbols, Gidwitz manages to give readers food for thought on these issues as he shows how Jack and Jill must learn to like themselves before they can make other people like them. He also shows how difficult it can be, even after you've thoroughly learned a moral lesson, to stick by it, but he goes beyond happily ever after to show it can be done.
