Product Description


"Sprightly, assured, and original" (The Horn Book Review)

"Whether readers connect more deeply with the suspense, the magical elements, or the gloriously improbable love story, they will come away with a lingering taste of enchantment." (School Library Journal)

"A fantastic tale, seamlessly told." (Ann Giles The Bookwitch)

"McNeal weaves in fantastical fairy-tale details into this inventive and deeply poignant narrative, creating a world that hovers between realism and enchantment" (Publishers Weekly)

"Reminiscent of Hansel and Gretel, and rife with allusions to Grimm Brothers’ tales, this is a masterful story of outcasts, the power of faith, and the triumph of good over evil." (Booklist)

"Enchanting, romantic, and tinged with terror, this modern story subtly weaves the haunting essentials of the fairy-tale tradition into a fascinating and beautifully written homage to its source material" (The Bulletin)


Listen, if you will, whispers the ghost of Jacob Grimm to Jeremy Johnson Johnson and to the readers of this delightful, modern-day fairy tale . . . The tone of Jacob’s narration captures the flavor of the Grimms’ tales while blending humorously with Jeremy’s ordinary, befuddled, teenage life . . .

Readers who love spotting allusions will appreciate this intelligent book’s robust vocabulary, and the real scholarship behind it. (Fantasy. 11-15)

" (Kirkus USA Kirkus USA)

"This is a beautifully written tale and one that will stay with me long after finishing it. I can honestly say I haven’t read anything else like it. The author has managed to take elements of fairy tales and weave them intricately into a contemporary novel. I would say it is unique and original and definitely a book I will return to again and again." (Vivienne http://www.serendipityreviews.co.uk/)
