This story is different as it has a narrator warning the reader about the upcoming gruesome bits. The narrator interjects throughout the story which I found lightened the constant gruesome storyline.
The author has taken some of Grimm’s fairy tales eg. Faithful Johannes, The Seven Swallows, The three golden hairs, etc and made Hansel and Gretel the protagonists throughout the story linking and relinking the fairy tales.
Despite the bloodthirsty bits, this story is funny and will definitely appeal to Scream Street, Invisible Fiends and R L Stine fans.
