This companion to Gidwitz’s popular A Tale Dark & Grimm tells the tales of Jack and Jill via a series of reimagined adventures inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. Veteran narrator Jonny Heller dives headfirst into these colorful fantasies with vigor and unbridled enthusiasm, creating an endless array of colorful characters that will delight audiences both young and old. Heller’s delivery is perfect for every character, and his excellent performance is on display right from the start. Listeners will find themselves hooked by the end of the first chapter, in part because Heller understands the role and responsibilities of the audio narrator—a role he clearly cherishes—and delivers a spirited performance. Ages 10–up. A Dutton hardcover. (Mar.)
