Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: From the Newbery Honor-winning, New York Times bestselling authorwith all new cover and interior illustrations by Dan Santat!

Did you know that Cinderella’s stepsisters got their eyes pecked out by birds? Really. And that 
Rumpelstiltskin ripped himself in half? And that in “The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage,” a mouse, a bird, and a sausage all talk to each other? (Okay, I guess that one’s not that grim.)
Those are the real fairy tales. But they have nothing on the fairy tales in this book.

For more twisted tales look for A Tale Dark and Grimm and In a Glass Grimmly.

* “Underneath the gore, the wit, and the trips to Hell and back, this book makes it clearer than ever that Gidwitz truly cares about the kids he writes for.” —Publishers Weekly starred review
“Entertaining story-mongering, with traditional and original tropes artfully intertwined.”—Kirkus Reviews

“As innovative as they are traditional, the stories maintain clear connections with traditional Grimm tales while creatively connecting to the narrative, and all the while keeping the proceedings undeniably grisly and lurid. . . .Readers will rejoice.”—School Library Journal
