Publisher Comments:

In the long-awaited fourth book in the New York Times bestselling series, the Grimms take on New York City!

Surprises abound for Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, fairy-tale detectives extraordinaire. When they venture into the big city, they stumble upon a murder, face betrayal by a friend, and discover an amazing secret about their mother, Veronica.

Sabrina just wants to be normal — no detecting, no dangerous escapes, and especially no Everafters. Unfortunately, New York City is a hiding spot for many famous fairy-tale folk. And there's a murderer in their midst! The girls and their friends must figure out who killed Puck's father, King Oberon, while coming to terms with their mother's secret life. Will they stop the murderer before he or she can strike again? And will Sabrina ever accept her family's destiny?

The colorful world of the Grimms expands in new and hilarious directions in Once upon a Crime. Critics and readers alike have embraced the Sisters Grimm series and its independent, quick-thinking heroines.

Synopsis:

'

After the shocking ending of The Everafter War, this book, the penultimate one in the series, picks up with Sabrina, Daphne, and Puck stuck in the Book of Everafter, where all the fairy tales are stored and enchanted characters can change their destinies. The girls (and Puck) must chase the Master through a series of stories, where they\'re willing to change what they must in order to save their baby brother. Soon, however, they are confronted by the Editorthe book\'s guardianwho, along with an army of tiny monsters known as Revisers, threatens the children with dire consequences if they don\'t stick to the stories. As they chase their quarry and dodge the Revisers, they meet Alice, Mowgli, Jack the Giant Killer, Hansel and Gretel, the Headless Horseman, and others. But will they find their brother in time?'

This series is my favorite!! People who like the Series of Unforunate Events, Warriors, and Gregor the Overlander will adore The Sisters Grimm. I have read the 1,2,3 and 4th and now waiting for the 5th to come out. It is better to start from book one then just to start right in the middle. You will get more information on the plot and storyline that way. Anyways, This book simply just rocks! ^_^
