Far, Far Away – Tom McNeal

far far awayWhat an odd yet enchanting story!  The author weaves a study of the Grimm Fairy Tales into a murder mystery.  The ghost of Jacob Grimm wandered for years until he found a special boy, Jeremy Johnson Johnson, who could hear him.  Jacob encouraged Jeremy to improve his dire situation by studying hard and setting a goal of a university education.  Jeremy is distracted by Ginger and they go adventuring into the mysterious disappearances of children.  Rich with characters and sprinkled with Grimm Tales, told in a melodious voice, this is a truly unique story.  Highly Recommend.
