Wish List Wednesday

A Tale Dark & Grimm (A Tale Dark & Grimm, 1) by Adam Gidwitz, October 28, 2010. Published by Dutton Juvenile.

In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches.
Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.
Why: There are really only two reasons that I want to get my hands on a copy of A Tale Dark & Grimm.  The first being that I absolutely love the Grimm Brothers fairy tales, seriously, they are some of my favorites because they're so dark; the second reason is that I read the companion book recently and would like to see what happened in the first installment.
