And they grant wishes?
Yes, they did.
And yes, they do.“

I would use this book in my classroom because although the plot reminded of the book, The Princess and The Frog, I enjoyed the humor that the narrator includes in his version.

In a Glass Grimmly written by Adam Gidwitz. Chapter 1 p. 3-24. We are introduced to a frog who lives near a well in the woods. He falls in love at first sight with the Princess who goes into the woods to play ball. The frog then gets a wish granted to him and he wants to be friends with the Princess. I would classify this book as Animal Fantasy because the frog is able to talk. The plot reminds me of the story the Princess and the Frog.

I think it is very interesting that Jack and Jill have a three-legged talking frog as their animal sidekick throughout their adventures. They climb a beanstalk, visit a goblin market and go into a fire-breathing salamander's lair. It is nice how the author put some sort of warning or funny comment before something violent, emotional, or gross was about to happen in the book.

I think I would enjoy reading this book because it is about Jack and Jill's adventures as they enter new environments and explore new sets of tales that may or may not be scary. It seems like it would be a good combination of intensity and sweetness since it includes fairy tales I grew up reading and twisted fairy tales as well. You could also read it without having read the first book.

...if you're the kind of person who, upon hearing about two children wading through a pool of blood and vomit, runs out of the room screaming, you don't need to worry. This book is for you. There is no decapitation, dismemberment, people without clothing, or pools of blood and vomit anywhere in this book.
At least, not anywhere in the first few pages.
