Scary fairytales they were enjoyable yet disturbing

FindingJane Jul 30, 2014

Grimm tales never grow old, stale or lose their power, enchanting generation after generation of writers to dip their quills in their bloody inkpots. Taking the names of another sibling team as his springboard, Adam Gidwitz propels us, his trembling readers, into yet another phantasmagoria of gore, manic mayhem and raving ravens. Here, betrayal isn’t just found at the hands of neglectful or nasty parental units but everywhere in the world. The separation of brother and sister comes sooner, too, forcing Jorinda and Joringel early into the outside world, propelling them into a kind of untimely maturity for which they’re both rather ill suited.

Mr. Gidwitz has points to make besides relating grisly stories. Maturity and wisdom come at the expense of loss of childhood, as this book makes painfully clear. But that’s no reason that childlike qualities have to be cast off so soon or abandoned forever. The book delivers this moral without subtlely but without force either. While I still believe these stories aren’t entirely for children, no child can be spared the trials between its bloody pages—much as we would wish it.
