Professional reviews

"In this combination fairy tale and nursery rhyme, the once predictable Jack and Jill find themselves tested by obstacles far more dangerous than any hill. Johnny Heller narrates this grisly send-up of the cautionary tale. Heller's naturally ebullient and playful voice creates an enjoyable yet disturbing contrast between content and delivery. His role is both storyteller and herald, and listeners will learn quickly to trust his earnest warnings of what lies ahead. Heller manages alternately to conjure and frighten, then reassure, heightening anticipation. Sensitive listeners may be put off by the gruesomeness that sets the stage for the children's journey, but rest assured, their ultimate triumph balances the despair. Perfect for the listener who enjoys the macabre mixed with melodrama. A.S. 2014 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
