Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '12 Kids List
“This is a bloody marvelous, wonderfully horrible companion to Gidwitz's award-winning debut, A Tale Dark & Grimm. In this Mother Goose-meets-the-Brothers Grimm version of 'Jack and Jill,' the two children will meet a talking frog -- he's a good guy -- and lots of murderous giants, twisted mermaids, gruesome goblins, and other scary bad guys. But that's okay, because what's the point of going on a life-or-death quest if it's easy-peasy? A must-read for middle-graders!”
-- Ellen Klein, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA

About the Author
Ne a San Francisco en 1982, Adam Gidwitz a grandi a Baltimore. Au college, son petit cote rebelle le conduisait tres frequemment devant le bureau du proviseur. Il s'assagit suffisamment au lycee pour pouvoir integrer ensuite l'universite de New York. Il a d'abord penser s'orienter vers des etudes theologiques, puis philosophiques, pour finir par opter pour la litterature anglaise. En effet, Adam pense que les verites les plus profondes ont toutes ete ecrites dans des ouvrages de fiction. C'est en Angleterre, ou il passe sa troisieme annee d'etude - et a beaucoup de temps libre - qu'il se decouvre l'envie d'ecrire. Apres avoir recu son diplome, il obtient un poste comme enseignant a Brooklyn, ou il passe les pauses du dejeuner a raconter des histoires aux enfants; le soir, il va a la rencontre d'ecrivains et lit une quantite impressionnante de romans jeunesse. En 2012, il fait un passage en France, avec son epouse, avant de retourner a Brooklyn.
