SNATCH A STORY
THE WICKED READ
By Ana Martinez Castillo
Illustrated by Laura Liz
Published by NubeOcho
Age Range: 6 – 10 Years
If you’ve waited all your life to read the line, “We don’t have to peel Rapunzel,” then this twisted offering, presented as a cookbook, is for you.
Gingrich the Witch takes her cooking very seriously, from the perfect utensils -cages and couldrons- to the perfect recipes- a Sleeping Beauty omelet or a Cinderella hamburger… Follow along as she prepares her favorite ‘legendary’ meals.
“For young fans of the macabre, perhaps with an aversion to Disney princesses, the unsettling, dark, blocky illustrations will provide gruesome glee. The drawings are perfectly unappetizing, as they imagine a witch’s palate, and are the most enjoyable aspect of the book.” —Kirkus Reviews
