The two children split up and Gretel might get murdered by a handsome man. Hansel's new father had to trade Hansel to the devil to get the kings money back. The king gambled away all his money. Hansel and Gretel could never find the perfect parent until they returned home. A big surprise is at the end of the story. I loved this book there was so much action and it was VERY suspenseful. There was a lot of bloody scenes. I would recommend this book to people who love action and horror.

Magic book Stink and the Incredible Super-galactic Jawbreaker
Megan McDonald

This is a spinoff of the Judy Moody series in the perspective of the brother Stink. It was easy to read, but still entertaining. Megan does a good job in keeping the characters different and consistent. New characters are introduced and they are likeable except Webster. This was an easy read.
