    " My mom read it and said it was cute and I might like it. I won't say anything other then that it really was cute. Oh, and clever. It was that as well. Don't think I'll read it again, but it was cute. "

    " Really enjoyed this book -- funny, quick reading, clever kids and dumb adults. Added to scary books shelf, even though it's not exactly scary. It's gory, I'll keep it as a back up when I can't find any other scary books. "

    " A retelling of Hansel and Gretel with all the brood and gore of the original Grimm tales. It is also wickedly clever. "

    " Sarcastic, funny, and as the title implies very dark. This book is certainly not for squeamish children who are easily frightened as it contains a lot of gory images. It is a very fun, unique, and complex telling of the Grimm Fairytales that I think children will enjoy. "

    " I really enjoyed this, and it had a similar tone to Lemony Snicket. It's clever and original, and while it isn't a book for a sensitive reader (there are lots of scary bits) it will appeal to kids 10-12. "

    " The narration that was always cutting in really annoyed me. Other than that, the stories were really entertaining. "

    " An extremely wonderful book, but a tiny bit gory. It's quite funny in some parts and very serious and dangerous in other parts. I love how the author talk directly to the reader. "
