In a Glass Grimmly, by Adam Gidwitz

Summary: Oversize plant life, eerie amphibious royalty, and fear-inducing creatures abound. Follow Jack and Jill as they enter startling new landscapes that may (or may not) be scary, bloody, terrifying, and altogether true.  Happily ever after isn’t cutting it anymore. Frog joins cousins Jack and Jill in leaving their own stories to seek a magic mirror, encountering such creatures as giants, mermaids, and goblins along the way. Based in part on fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.

  1. This was a very interesting book. I could see the author was experienced, and could keep readers on their toes. The author is the narrator, and adds clever comments that were very intriguing (definitely read the introduction). The plot is another one of those fairy tale type books, but he mixes them together, makes them different, and yet fits them all in one whole piece. Character development? Yep, there’s lots. They decide what to do with their lives. Setting? I think the author portrayed it very well. So I would put this higher then any other fairy tale book I have read so far and I of course give it a Yes.

  2. i would say yes to this book. it was different from all of the fairy tale books i have read. it had some parts that were unexpected but some of the other parts that remind you of the normal fairy tale feeling but at the same time there would always be something new about it. the author is always making comments that can be funny most of the time. over all this was a great book.

  3. Out of all the fairy tale books i’ve read this is the best one. It is exicting and funny. I like how the author puts a different twist on it. I also like how it seems like the author is telling you the story because of the comments he adds through out the book. This could get the newbery.
