The Grimm Conclusion

The Grimm Conclusion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once upon a time, fairy tales were grim.

Cinderella's stepsisters got their eyes pecked out by birds.

Rumpelstiltskin ripped himself in half.

And in a tale called “The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage,” a mouse, a bird, and a sausage all talk to each other. Yes, the sausage talks. (Okay, I guess that one's not that grim…)

Those are the real fairy tales.

But they have nothing on the story I'm about to tell.

This is the darkest fairy tale of all. Also, it is the weirdest. And the bloodiest.

It is the grimmest tale I have ever heard.

And I am sharing it with you.

Two children venture through forests, flee kingdoms, face ogres and demons and monsters, and, ultimately, find their way home. Oh yes, and they may die. Just once or twice.

That's right. Fairy tales

Are

Awesome.

Synopsis:

Widely praised and beloved by children, adults, and critics alike, Adam Gidwitz delivers a third serving of eerie new landscapes and fear-inducing creatures in a story sure to delight and frighten fans old and new. In the final book in the series, Adam's brilliantly irreverent narrator leads readers through a fresh world of Grimm-inspired fairy tales, based on such classics as "The Juniper Tree" and the real story of Cinderella.

About the Author

Adam Gidwitz taught in Brooklyn for eight years. Now, he writes full time — which means he writes a couple of hours a day, and lies on his couch staring at the ceiling the rest of the time. As is the case with all of his books, everything in The Grimm Conclusion not only happened in the real fairy tales… it all also happened to Adam. Really.
