By using the familiar with a touch of the unfamiliar, Bar-el successfully encourages the reader to pick up an old favourite or something new after completing this fun treat.
Things are Looking Grimm, Jill is written at a language level appropriate for grades 3 through 5. However, the humour and characters will appeal to older readers, thus making it an excellent high interest book. The black and white illustrations further add to the sense of parody of the fractured fairy tale.
The cover expressively conveys the parody and humour found inside. In fact, the cover illustrations enticed a year-old to pick it up after seeing it lying on the table. Though she said it was quick read, she enjoyed the character of Jill and the mixture of Grimm and Mother Goose. My co-reviewer, an 11 year old girl, loved the story. She has given the novel a highly recommended rating.
This author is worth exploring for the student who enjoys fairy tales, nursery rhymes, or just a good chuckle. To comment on this title or this review, send mail to cm umanitoba.
