Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In paperback for the first time, the Sisters Grimm take readers to a world where fairy tales are fact and not everyone is who they seem!

In book one of this bestselling series, sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm. The sisters learn they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous book of fairy tales is actually a collection of case files. The girls are the latest in a long line of fairy-tale detectives, and their new hometown is filled with Everafters (as magical folks like to be called) — some good and some very, very bad. When a mysterious Everafter sets a giant loose on the town, it's up to the Sisters Grimm to save the day.

Review:

"Buckley has succeeded in creating a sympathetic heroine with a realistic voice plopped down in a fantastic setting. Most lovers of fantasy fiction will enjoy this book." Alan Review

Review:

"The twists and turns of the plot, the clever humor, and the behind-the-scenes glimpses of Everafters we think we know, will appeal to many readers." KLIATT

Review:

"Rich in well-set-up surprises and imaginatively tweaked characters, this tongue-in-cheek frolic features both a pair of memorable young sleuths and a madcap plot with plenty of leads into future episodes." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In book one of this New York Times bestselling series, sisters Sabrina and Daphne learn they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm — whose famous fairy tales are actually case files — and are the latest in a long line of fairy-tale detectives.

These books are amazing! All the books in The Fairytale Detectives series are outstanding. This book introduces Sabrina and Daphne Grimm and is about the fairy tale world. There are many fairytale characters in the book. The Grimms are also related to the Grimm brothers. Overall, an awesome collection of books!

After their parents mysteriously disappear, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are sent to live with their grandmother, a woman they had been told was dead. Upon arrival the girls learn that they are the last descendants of the Brothers Grimm and the town they now call home is a haven for Everafters, or fairy tale characters. They soon become caught up in an adventure involving pixies, a giant, the Big Bad Wolf, and even the former Prince Charming. Readers familiar with fairy tales and A Midsummer Night's Dream will enjoy being able to recognize the classic characters as they enter the story. The pace is quick and the adventure exciting. The beautiful book design adds to the reading experience. Each chapter is headed with an old fashioned cameo and Peter Ferguson's soft pencil illustrations add to the appeal. Recommended for public and school library collections. Might be of special interest to schools with units on Grimm fairy tales.
