Audio: Hello! Im Ms. Smith, a middle school media specialist from Atlanta, Georgia. Do you love sweet, little fairy tales? Princesses singing to birds? Candy houses and happy endings? Me neither! But did you know that real fairy tales are nothing like that? The Grimm Brothers versions of fairy tales are filled with death, dismemberment, and terrifying monsters. Adam Gidwitz, author of A Tale Dark and Grimm, knows that kids want to know the REAL stories, not the watered down versions.

Floating Titles Shot Size: Medium Shot Title Movement: Left to Right Title/Text: Titles of Grimms Tales: Hansel & Gretel, Faithful Johannes, Brother & Sister, The Three Golden Hairs, more Titles will drift from right and left of the screen. Audio: He takes several of Grimms more gruesome tales (titles floating on the screen) and combines them in this brilliant, funny, action packed novel. Our main characters are two children, Hansel and Gretel. Montage of Illustrations from the Book Cover, Inside Panels, Chapter Heading Illustrations Duration: 50 seconds

Shot: Wide Movement: Pan Right Audio Voiceover: Hansel and Gretel are born to a king and queen who love them, but who are forced to behead their own children, due to terrible circumstances. The children decided, understandably, to run away to find new parents, parents who wont cut off their heads. How, you might ask do they decide anything if they had their heads cut off? Youll just have to read the book! Anyway, Hansel and Gretel wind their way through many of Grimms other fairy tales: escaping the cannibalistic witchs gingerbread house (of course), journeying to the Crystal Mountain, living in a haunted forest, even tricking the Devil himself. When they finally decide to try to go home, they have to fight a village-destroying, monstrous dragon. A Tale Dark and Grimm is filled with adventure, hilarity, and you will never guess the ending!
