#MMBBR #Review #Giveaway #BookTrailer It's Not Hansel and Gretel by @joshfunkbooks and @edwardiantaylor via #partner @barbfisch at @blueslipper and #TwoLion who provided a #free #reviewcopy


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a fun twist on an old favorite. The story is playful and interactive. It allow for lot of fun while reading aloud with the kids. In addition to the fun dialogue throughout the illustrations are bright and colorful. You will love reading along to see how things turn out. Such a funny book!

Like Hansel and Gretel, Josh Funk doesn't like being told how stories should go—so he writes his own. He is the author of a bunch of picture books, including the popular Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast series, illustrated by Brendan Kearney, and recently, How to Code a Sandcastle, illustrated by Sara Palacios, and Lost in the Library: A Story of Patience & Fortitude, illustrated by Stevie Lewis. He lives in New England with his wife and children. Learn more about him at and follow him on Twitter @joshfunkbooks.

Edwardian Taylor has worked as a visual development artist and character designer in the game and animation industry. He illustrated the picture book Race!, written by Sue Fliess and the chapter book Toy Academy: Some Assembly Required, written by Brian Lynch. He lives in Texas with his partner and their four dogs. Learn more about him at and follow him on Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter @edwardiantaylor.

  1. I love the eyes of the characters in the book! The eyes just like in real life show it all - the emotions, the love, the sad. I just can't stop looking at the eyes! If only human eyes could be so crystal clear on how we feel. This book is awesome. So is Josh Funk~

  2. I love that Hansel and Gretel work together!

  3. What I love about the original Hansel and Gretel is that the kids figured out how to get out of their mess on their own. What I love about Josh Funk's version, is that i know it will make my day so much better with all the smiles and laughter it will bring me. dhammelef(at)yahoo(dot)com
