The Grimm Conclusion (on tape)

These books are not for the faint of heart. But they are well-written, interesting, full of fairytales and funny.

We love the audio books of these stories. I cannot tell you how many times I've come downstairs to find my kids sitting around the computer, listening to this book on tape and laughing hysterically all together. The narrator is brilliant. Perfect for long car rides!

Ages 8 and up.

Once upon a time, fairy tales were grim.

Cinderella’s stepsisters got their eyes pecked out by birds.

Rumpelstiltskin ripped himself in half.

And in a tale called “The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage,” a mouse, a bird, and a sausage all talk to each other. Yes, the sausage talks. (Okay, I guess that one’s not that grim…)

Those are the real fairy tales.

But they have nothing on the story I’m about to tell.

This is the darkest fairy tale of all. Also, it is the weirdest. And the bloodiest.

It is the grimmest tale I have ever heard.

And I am sharing it with you.

Two children venture through forests, flee kingdoms, face ogres and demons and monsters, and, ultimately, find their way home. Oh yes, and they may die. Just once or twice.

That’s right. Fairy tales
