Kindle Into the Woods A very clever mashup of many different fairytales. I picked it to read out loud to a younger (not by much) sibling and ended up enjoying it as much as she did despite my slightly higher-than-intened-audience age! . Into the Woods is a Book A twisty turny, not quite fairy tale that is sure to please, now in paperback Storm, Aurora, and Anything Eden live in a decaying mansion on the edge of the wilds with their erstwhile father and indolent mother When an accident leaves them orphaned and at the mercy of the sinister Dr DeWilde, these three courageous and eccentric sisters are forced to flee into the woods,A twisty turny, not quite fairy tale that is sure to please, now in paperback Storm, Aurora, and Anything Eden live in a decaying mansion on the edge of the wilds with their erstwhile father and indolent mother When an accident leaves them orphaned and at the mercy of the sinister Dr DeWilde, these three courageous and eccentric sisters are forced to flee into the woods, where they encounter kidnappers, sweets filled orphanages, mountains of ice, diamond mines, and some ravenously hungry wolves.Taking inspiration from numerous fairy tales and weaving them into a wholly original story, Into the Woods is a whirlwind of a novel, full of imaginative happenings and dastardly deeds.. Lyn Gardner is the author of Olivia s First Term and the other Olivia books She was born in London and now lives near Richmond Park with her partner and two daughters A theatre critic for The Guardian, she goes to the theatre five or six nights a week, which should leave no time for writing books at all Before she became a journalist, Lyn was a tea lady, a waitress and sold advertising space for a magazine called Sludge Her ambitions are to learn to tap dance and walk the high wire, but it may have to be the low wire as she is a bit scared of heights. Bestseller Book Into the Woods I'm too old for this one. I assume the reader is meant to identify with Storm and her desire for adventure, but my sympathies were all with the older sister Aurora and her endless, thankless grind of housework and trying to take care of her willful, self-centered brat of a protagonist sister with no money or help from her lazy, self-centered parents. And what is up with the names? Storm Eden and Aurora Eden? This is supposed to historical fiction, isn't it? Not that I could tell exactly when it was meant to be set, but before Modern Technology.

  2. Into the Woods is a fairytale mashup of mainly a feminist take on The Pied Piper, but with also The Snow Queen, Hansel and Gretel and Red Riding Hood I originally wrote a very long and winding review about this, then realized I was putting way too much analyzation into a simple children s book.Or maybe not much of the action and goriness thankfully mainly unDisneyfied and mainly true to Anderson Grimm work seems too graphic or just inappropriate for younger children Topics like cannibalism, kidn [...]


  3. A very clever mashup of many different fairytales I picked it to read out loud to a younger not by much sibling and ended up enjoying it as much as she did despite my slightly higher than intened audience age


  4. Wild This is a fractured fairy tale it s actually several fairy tales fractured and pieced together Sounds a bit like Frankenstein, doesn t it The Eden sisters, Aurora, Storm and Any, live on a run down estate at the edge of their village, which is in the middle of a rat infestation The mysterious and scary Dr DeWilde appears, surrounded by drooling and snapping wolves, and promisese to handle the rat problem but the town MUST pay wht he asks What does he want Children He also wants the small me [...]


  5. I stumbled upon this book, purchasing it by impulse I can t contain myself when I come in contact with fairytales I was not disappointed This is by far the best fairytale I have read in such a long time The book had everything adventure, mystery, frightening parts, along with sisterly bonds that were unbreakable Even though there were hints of other tales mentioned here and there, entwined within the story Into the Woods is a story all in itself that I couldn t put down I was enthralled at Lyn G [...]


  6. Another reviewer described this book as slightly manic and I would have to agree with that assessment of the pacing Once it gets going they are facing death over and over and over with no breathing room, lots of terror and tears and it is a bit exhausting The plot conflicts are aided by the main character s sharp perception or unbelievable obtuseness The difficulties and plot progressions were too easy and too hard to overcome at the same time and it just didn t work for me And then after this b [...]


  7. Every few books I throw a young reader into the mix, looking for books to read to my granddaughter when she s older I chose this book because the main characters name is Aurora, same as my granddaughter I about fell over when they introduced the character Netta Truelove My friends have always called me Netta It s as if it were written for us There s a recipe at the back of the book that I ll be making to eat while we read it The book was full of adventure and fun to read There were even other ch [...]


  8. An incredible twist on quite a few well known fairy tales, this book is one of my personal favorites After their mother dies and their father refuses to do much but weep in his room, the three sisters Aurora, Storm, and Anything must fend for themselves Little do they know that soon they will have to defend themselves against wolves, an orphanage that s too sweet to be true, an ogress with a taste for games, and the so called exterminator Dr DeWilde, who can t wait to get his hands on the three [...]


  9. This was another one of those bizarre library books that I, to this day, have no idea how or why I found It made me inexplicably uncomfortable, and I m pretty sure that it s to blame for several reoccurring nightmares Remembering reading this STILL makes my skin crawl, to be honest.






  10. I was looking through my bookshelf, and came across this book And was reminded of how much I loved it For a school aged kid, this was real fun I loved the whole fairytale set up, loved the adventures, loved the characters, loved it all.But do keep in mind that the love I had for this was, say, 8 years ago now Nevertheless, this was one of my favourite books as a kid, or I would not have been able to remember this today.



  11. People need to read this book This has always been one of my favourite books ever Idek why hardly anyone has read it The story is a masterpiece that weaves in fairytales in not a babyish way This book includes amazing characters and the plot is unpredictable tho sometimes really predictable The illustrations in it are amazing I just love how the story unfolds The entire book just leaves you sitting there like woah, what just happened When you reach the end of the story, it just gives you a nice [...]


  12. This book is so much fun I loved figuring out the references to well known fairy tales Rapunzel, the Snow Queen, Hansel and Gretel, the Wild Swans it is a good test of anyone s fairytale knowledge It s the story of the Pied Piper that is featured most prominently Storm Eden and her family beautiful, industrious, elder sister Aurora, her charming but extremely laid back lazy mother Zella, and her distracted father, Reggie, live in a big old house as eccentric as they are Aurora is the house keepe [...]


  13. This was a pretty good book I just don t understand why it has huge font, with tons of space Those 2 things made it over 400 pages If they re trying to force it into being a junior book, then the book length alone would be a huge deterrent for a young reader I think they should have just had normal sized font and regular spacing, and had it be a YA book The reading level is young adult and not junior anyway.Sisters Storm and Aurora could not be different Aurora loves reorganizing the linen clos [...]


  14. This was an awesome twist on the fairytales you may have loved as a kid It is about a girl named Storm who lives at Eden End a lovely cottage with her sister and two neglectful parents Her sister Aurora is always nagging her not to go into the woods, but one day Storm got so bored she imagined what it was like outside the confinment of the walls of her cottage So she walked into the woods and hitched a ride into a town full of despair She followed the villagers into a town meeting about the rat [...]


  15. I liked it It started off extremely well, 4 or 5 star worthy but sort of petered off for me Still worth the read though, if you re hesitant.As another side note before I continue, I found this book when I went looking for a book about Into the Woods , the Stephen Sondheim musical, when I saw they were making a movie out of it This book has nothing to do with the musical but like the musical it happens to be a mash up of fairy tales.Overall, I very much enjoyed this novel and I flew the first two [...]


  16. dimensional plot Really interesting twists making it suitable for slightly older readers It was so much fun to put all the pieces together and guess the fairytale being depicted Especially to guess which character is from which tale To fully appreciate the nuances of the plot I think you need a good knowledge of traditional fairy tales.Vivid descriptions with the use of many adjectives in order to create a full picture plus adding to the vocabulary Rich and interesting characterisation showing t [...]


  17. I have had this book to read for quite awhile I really enjoyed the beginning of this book but as the story progressed I found my attention lagging There are cute illustrations throughout which made the story pretty fun.This is an interesting mash up of folktales and fairy tales There are little bits and pieces of many throughout I actually started to find it a bit distracting sorting out which pieces of the story came from which fairy tales.This is a fairy tale that is pretty dark in tone I enjo [...]


  18. I read this book 4 years ago and fell in love with it I finished it for the second time 5 minutes ago and it is definitely in my top 5 books I ve ever read I love fairytale retellings, and this just ties in so many different fairytales I love it so much The 3 main characters all have different personalities and you understand them all differently I can t comprehend how much I love this book There s so much action, and even though it s probably middle grade it is literally my favourite book of al [...]


  19. For lovers of fractured fairy tales, this has many of the same motifs as what you would expect.Follow the story of three sisters, Storm, Aurora, and Ana as they battle their own fears and learn what true sisterhood is all about It s a great children s book with lessons to be learned, even if it has to be spelled out There were a few instances in the story that I felt were particularly forced, especially as we reached the climax of the story near the end Granted, it s a fairy tale format, so ther [...]


  20. Gardner effectively creates a gothic, fairy tale like world full of familiar, yet re imagined, characters Dr DeWilde is the Pied Piper, hired by the townsfolk to rid the village of rats He seeks a magic pipe that will give him the power to do evil in the world Aurora, Storm, and Any are three sisters forced to run from their home The three are chased into the forest by Dr DeWilde and his wolves Aurora, the eldest, likes to keep things in order The middle sister, Storm, is a reckless, spunky her [...]


  21. Delightful and whimsical and fun This story is like A Series of Unfortunate Events rolled into the Flavia De Luce books with a dash of the Grimms and Andersen I laughed out loud several times, and continually found myself wondering what was going to happen next I enjoyed the contrast between the two sisters, and especially liked sweet but wicked Mrs Bumble who owes something to Delores Umbridge but is still pleasantly horrifying in her own right.Lyn Gardner understands that children have brains, [...]


  22. Into the Woods combines so many fun literary elements into one pie Lively language, a fabulous protagonist, and an imaginative setting Storm, our heroine, is an adventurous middle daughter who saves her part of the world from the pied piper s tune of leading children off to work in the mines She s easy to like, being quite round and human, like most of the other characters I especially love the gusto of the author, who was willing to portray Storm s sister as a girly girl who finds pleasure in c [...]


  23. Found this at the library withdraw stand for.50c Book in great condition and started reading on the bus on Friday Finished it this morning Awesome It was classified as a junior kids read but could easily been a Teens section book.Take a family in a fairy tale world where many of the classic fairy tale stories all collide together You have the family Mum who was stuck in a tower and got rescued by Dad, and their 2 children Eldest daughter, Aurora, has been fortold will prick her finger when she t [...]


  24. A little bit of Rapunzel, a pinch of Sleeping Beauty, hints of the Snow Queen, and a chapter or two of Hansel and Gretel are wrapped up in the Pied Piper of Hamlin to create this original tale of three sisters Aurora, Storm, and Anything Eden When their mother dies and their father abandons them, they must fend for themselves This is no easy feat when the creepy exterminator, Dr DeWilde, and his wolves are after them and the old tin pipe that their mother left them The black and white illustrati [...]


  25. It s not a perfect book, but for someone who s soaked in fairy tales like I ve become it s a fun read and an entertaining adventure My wife, our 5 year old daughter and I read the whole thing aloud, and they couldn t get enough of it I was not quite so entranced, but didn t mind it at all Gardner s writing isn t quite as lyrical as she seems to try to make it, and is at its best when straight forward The illustrations by Mini Grey are minimal and appropriate, hearkening to Brett Helquist s for [...]
