    REVIEW FOR IN A GLASS GRIMMLY AND A TALE DARK & GRIMM: Hansel and Gretel is not just breadcrumbs and evil witches. There's more to the story than that. Same with Jack and Jill. They didn't just fall down a hill. There were other details; details that were not told in the original short versio...

    The book ''Blubber'' is a book that I think kids of every age and grade should read in one point in their life. It tells kids how it feels to tease somebody else and feel how exactly like to be the target. The book was ok, it was not one of my favorites but I still think it should be reccomended....
