Along with their parents who have dead boring (sorry!) names of Mr Undead and Mrs Undead, Hansel and Gretel are protein deficient. Their corner of the Magical Forest doesn’t attract many brains these days and in a broken lightbulb moment Momma zombie comes up with a plan - to disguise her undead children as not dead children to trick tourists into helping them find their way home to the cemetery for dinner, Hannibal Lector style. All dressed up with Gretel’s gaping hole in her skull covered with a bonnet and Hansel’s missing eye still glowing an eerie fluorescent yellow-green, our undead kidlets wander off and wind up at Ms Witch’s newly renovated cottage. The children prove their zombieness (I can make up words. It’s my review! 😜) by their abhorrence of all things sugar. A battle of wits ensues. Fernando Cano’s illustrations are suitably entertaining. I loved the old cemetery. My favourite panels show Gretel trying to form an idea. I won’t spoil what it looks like but I’m still amused. On the attention to detail side of things only Mrs Undead’s stitched mouth lines are consistent throughout. All of the other zombies have mouth stitches on some panels but not others. The storyline was okay but not overly captivating. The twist at the end was a let down for me. Overall I prefer the original fairy tale, which is more far out than this Far Out Fairy Tales version. So, it’s now time to beg my library to buy the rest of this series! 😃

    Jag gillade den här. Rolig knorr på sagan med zombies. Plus illustrationerna är så snygga. Gillade även den första delen i series Askninjan.

    The retelling of Hansel & Gretel & Zombies accomplishes creating a world sperate from what we currently imagine in terms of fairytales. Hansel, Gretel, and their parents are zombies in a graveyard, and because it has been a long time since they have had any fresh brains, their parents send Hansel and Gretel to find brains for everyone. Their plans go completely awry when they meet a witch, who wishes to eat them, despite their obvious undeadness.

Hansel, Gretel, and their parents are zombies in a graveyard, and because it has been a long time since they have had any fresh brains, their parents send Hansel and Gretel to find brains for everyone. Their plans go completely awry when they meet a witch, who wishes to eat them, despite their obvious undeadness. The Graphic novel meshes the words and art to add many hilarious and bizarre points that moves the story along very nicely. Hansel and Gretel are drawn in a classic cartoon style, similar to early Disney, although they are still ravenous zombies with attitude rather than sweet children, the style suits the lightheartedness of the work. The twists to the well-known fairytale, such as the parents’ caring attitude toward their children, give the story a lighthearted tone, and the plot merrily skips to its sweet and funny conclusion. The nods to zombie tropes are more humorous than scary and further contribute to the story’s light-heartedness. It would be a funny and creative story that would work well as a Halloween story or as a side-by-side comparison for students to evaluate compared to the original story. The graphic novel styles is also a really unique book that might intrigue a more reluctant reader.

    While researching fairy tales for a project, I stumbled upon this unique take on ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at my public library. Curious, I checked it out. As a graphic novel, it is a quick read with wonderful cartoonish artwork and a solid and original take on the classic Grimm Brothers’ story. When I saw the age-range, I was a little concerned about children reading a book about zombie children eating people, even though the writings by the Grimm Brothers were never exactly ‘family friendly.’ My wor While researching fairy tales for a project, I stumbled upon this unique take on ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at my public library.

When I saw the age-range, I was a little concerned about children reading a book about zombie children eating people, even though the writings by the Grimm Brothers were never exactly ‘family friendly.’ My worries were not justified, as the writer did a great job keeping this fun and lively tale safe for kids to read. I really liked it and it showed me yet another way fairy tales - even classics - can be written or revamped into something new and unique.

    As part of a paper about Hansel and Gretel stories I read this and another graphic novel and I definitely enjoyed this one more. The story is great, instead of the family living in a cottage and the father being a woodcutter, the family lives in a graveyard and are all zombies. Hansel and Gretel are disguised as "normal" children to lure tourists to the graveyard because the family is hungry for BRAINS!

This is not the only twist that is different from the fairy tale, just wait to see how the witch is handled. This is version is more comical than scary and will appeal to kids, especially those that want zombie stories but might still be too impressionable for really scary zombies.

    Hansel and Gretel's zombie parents need fresh brains, so they send out their children to lure people into their cemetery, but instead they are captured by a witch and the tables may be turned. This installment of the Far Our Fairy Tales series has some dark humor but isn't that much more twisted than the original fairy tale. Cartoony illustrations and an explanation of how to interpret the comic format make this a good choice for young readers starting out on their graphic novel journeys.

    Hannu ja Kerttu elävät metsässä, mutta kun nälkä yllättää, heidän vanhempansa lähettävät lapset metsään etsimään turisteja, jotta he voisivat syödä heidän aivonsa. Far out fairy tales ovat oivia uudelleentulkintoja, joiden lopussa on myös sarjakuvakerrontaa ja kertomuksia avaavia kysymyksiä ja selityksiä.

    A great retelling of Hansel and Gretel. I love the way they introduce some new vocabulary and include some good questions for school children. Very fun!

    Zombies are not my favorite, but this was a fun twist on the tale. No evil stepmother and they have no interest in eating a candy house, just BRAINS!

    (view spoiler)[This adaptation is not nearly as scary as the original story, even with the addition of zombies. The happily ever after ending for everyone - including the witch - is very unexpected. (hide spoiler)] Scary or not, the artwork and story are very good and appropriate for younger readers.

    This was a creative, exciting twist on the traditional tale. Zombies are in right now, and kids recognize Hansel and Gretel. I think it’s a great way to get kids to read. A few plot points threw me off, but I think that’s because I was an adult. After I thought about it more, I realized kids would love it. In spite of all of the brains talk, it had a sweet ending, too.

    I'm confused why the mom is in a fitted business suit/skirt and heels and the dad is in a track suit with gym shoes? siiiiigh. I like the last page where it gives suggestions of thinking questions for the readers.

    A graphic twisted fairytale with zombies. How can it go wrong? Once again I like the extras in the back of the book.
