When Sol and Connie Blink move to Grand Creek, one of the first people to welcome them is an odd older woman, Fay Holaderry, and her friendly dog, Swift, who carries a very strange bone in his mouth. Sol knows a lot more than the average eleven-year-old, so when he identifies the bone as human, he and Connie begin to wonder if their new neighbor is up to no good. <

I am 12 years old, and I read really fast. This book, which was about 180 pages, was an easy read. It was most definitely for elementary schoolers, probably for advanced third-graders or reculant nine-year olds. However, I myself enjoyed the book even though I¿m reading books by Lois Lowry and Elie Wiesel now. The novel is a retelling of Hansel and Gretel, set in present times. It follows the kid genius Solomon ¿Sol¿ Blink and his little sister, Constance ¿Connie¿ after they move to the town of Schoenberg. It is revealed in the first few pages that Fay Holaderry, their new next-door neighbor, is the child-eating witch from the story. There are many quirks to the story that make it different from the rest- such as the disappearance of both their parents, one an uncovered victim, why Mrs. Holaderry¿s dog carries a human bone around with him, the story of how come their father abandoned them in a vacant parking lot, and their roots to the old witch and savior also known as the manager of the local pet store. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It is most definitely appropriate for children, being that the story is based on a tale kindergarteners learn of during story time. It has much a more advanced level than the story, though, also being easy to understand and having clear dialogue. This book was one of those books that taught you to think before you trust anyone, perfect for a little kid trying to understand the importance of ¿Stranger Danger.¿ I would definitely recommend this book because it is a chilling, thrilling, must-read!!!

My daughter had already read this book at school and insisted on getting it for her nook so she would be able to read it anytime. She is an avid reader and really enjoys fantasy books and authors who are descriptive so that she can get a good picture of who the characters are.
