9780312674861: The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children: A Modern-Day Retelling of Hansel and Gretel (Texas Bluebonnet Books (Paperback))

I love children. Eating them, that is. So begins this funny, nail-biting adventure for readers who love Roald Dahl and Adam Gidwitz. Called "funny and subversive" by USA Today and a "literary treat" by The New Yorker, the book blends humor and adventure, adds sibling arguments while mixing well and goes down in a single, surprising gulp. For dessert, read the harrowing, humorous sequel--book two of THE UNITED STATES OF GRIMM series.

His newnovel, THE WITCH'S CURSE (featuring an ancient hunter and a shadowywitch), comes out in March, 2013, and was called an "edgy, absorbingread" by the American Library Association's Booklist.

When Sol and Connie Blink move to Grand Creek, one of the first people to welcome them is an odd older woman, Fay Holaderry, and her friendly dog, Swift, who carries a very strange bone in his mouth.
