This is a very interesting story that combines some known Grimm tales with some new story lines that I had never heard before. It’s written with Hansel and Gretel as the main characters, but their well-known tale is a very small part of this greater story. As is common with many of the original Grimm tales, there is some blood and violence. The narrator, however, makes it a point to warn the reader ahead of time before the story becomes too gruesome (almost to a point that’s a little annoying). Even so, it may not be suitable for younger readers.
The story is very imaginative with incredible monsters. Several times I wondered how the children were going to get out of their difficult situations, but they always did. A good read.
