Far Far Away

Jeremy Johnson Johnson knows everything about the Brothers Grimm and their fairy 9780375849725tales, but nothing about Disney. This does not endear him to his peers. That he hears the voice of Jacob Grimm’s ghost also does not help. He does make one good friend, though, named Ginger, and together they combat the trials of small town life and the big time danger therin. Throughout the book, fairy tales are told, replayed and explored. Tom McNeal‘s Far Far Away is a fairy tale itself, complete with intrigue, danger, improbable villains and the requisite happy ending.

Although I found this book in the teen section of my library, the voice and tone recommend it to upper middle grade audiences as well.
