Adam Gidwitz's A TALE DARK & GRIMM was an unbelievable wonder: a children's book that combined a whirlwind of Grimm's fairytales that became a salve and benediction to all those readers with lost playground days and unresolved glances to the rearview mirror. ATD&G worked (and continues to work) on multiple levels, and spoke many languages, but it had surprise on it's side, and a killer ending. So, the expectations were very high for IN A GLASS GRIMMLY, and it does that rare thing in literature: it does not try to be better than it's predecessor, but instead, to stand proudly beside it and tell an equally enthralling story. IN A GLASS GRIMMLY is truly more of a companion piece than an actual sequel to ATD&G. In Gidwitz's mythology, about sixty years have passed, and we are set to embark with with Gretel's granddaughter, Jill, and Hansel's grandson, Jack. We have left the Kingdom of Grimm behind, and now find ourselves in the Land of Marchen (basically a change from Germany to Denmark.) But, I believe, this world is darker, and there is a gloom that hangs over this land because of a goblin prank that went terribly wrong (my connecting of the dots and clues... other readers might discover other paths that have a different interpretive clarity, too). The promise of Hansel's & Gretel's victory has been short-lived, and we are left with Jack, Jill, and Frog trying to right an ancient wrong that will permit, at the very least, a simple yet seismic reset on their lives, and the lives of the characters that stand along the road. Everyone you meet is troubled and fractured; much like the legendary mirror at the tale's motivational center. I will say that the middle journey of IAGG might even be more strange and engaging with these gaggle of broken characters. Their stories are surprising and contain the requisite controlled blood splatter that makes for the best discoveries. The particular grain of bread found in IAGG is much darker than the one that sustained ATD&G, but I do not not believe that this loaf is without nutrition. On the contrary, there is great familiarity in these new (old) stories, and now he's added Hans Christian Andersen's lantern to Jacob & Wilhem's dim hallways. In these undiscovered pages and days, there are Magic Trees, Brotherhoods of Giants, Melancholy Mermaids, Homicidal Goblins, Fractured Mirrors, and an Eddie... And each one of these strange travelers has sat noisily beside me, and guided this fulfilling reading experience. And even when the Ravens (the hilarious threads of continuity from the previous story, the ones that link the two worlds with such warmth and humor) yelled gently and sarcastically to get me back on the path, I realized that these voices had already become some of my closest friends. Thank you, Adam Gidwitz, for another glorious story that sits like a old friend's hand on my shoulder, and like a frosted window unto my childhood. Relax, it's only scary for just a little while (but oh, what a delight it is to be reminded, again)!

OMG! I loved this sequel so much!!!! When I read this I couldn't put it down, I just love the twisted mixed up fairytales that Adam writes. I love how the author just comes out and talks to the reader in the bold print. A lot times he's really funny. I loved the interesting and brave journey Hansel and Gretel went through just to get the seeing glass for a creepy old lady. The funniest character had to be the frog named Frog, how creative. I'm also reading  The Grimm Conclusion. So far so good. Well I hope everybody reads this series!!!!!

This is, in my opinion, nearly as amazing as its predecessor - which is a high compliment, coming from me; I made an account just to review A Tale Dark and Grimm. This is just as scary, gross, witty, and violent as the first book, and has a good few important lessons of its own. This is a book for anyone of any age - as long as they aren't squeamish!

Once again, a fun and grim, excuse the pun, tale. Not quite as good as the first in the series but still very good. Very imaginative narrating that totally makes you want to turn the page. If you like fairytale that are a little off center then this is the book for you.
