Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the winning combination of Nancy Drew meets Shrek, this next book in the new Sisters Grimm series will entertain fans with the same hilarious mix of mysteries with fairy tale twists-plus some new, outrageous adventures.

In the tradition of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events and The Spiderwick Chronicles comes a new humorous mystery of fantastic circumstances. When orphaned sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, are sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm, who lives in a strange town in New York state, known for it's extraordinary number of unexplained and unusual crimes, they begin to unravel a mystery that leads to their ancestors' magical beginnings.

Sabrina and Daphne find out they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, who were actually detectives of the magical phenomenon perpetrated by the Everafters, a parallel race of magical beings. They soon learn it is the Grimm family's legacy to keep the Everafters in line and the two sisters are the sole heirs to this challenge! In The Sisters Grimm Book Two: The Unusual Suspects, the girls start school with Snow White as their teacher and soon discover a plot pitting mortal children against immortal parents — they must do everything they can to stop it!

In a new breed of mystery that entails excitement, adventure and imagination, The Sisters Grimm Book Two: The Unusual Suspects injects the legends of fairytale with modern day sensibilities and suspense, creating an irresistible combination young readers will love!

Review:

"As the story unfolds, character after character, including Little Miss Muffet, Puck and Snow White, comes on the scene in a manner sure to bring laughs from kids who like a clever new story offering plenty of 'Ah, ha!' moments as they recognize characters from stories of long ago." Children's Literature

Review:

"The story is fast paced and the main characters are sympathetic and appealing." School Library Journal

Review:

"[The] characters glow with interesting nuances, as they did in the first episode, and he closes this one on a genuinely disturbing cliffhanger." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In Book Two, the Sisters Grimm start school--Daphne's lucky enough to get Snow White for a teacher, but poor Sabrina's stuck with Mr. Grumpner. But when he is murdered in a particularly unusual way, it is up to the Grimms to find the Everafter who did it.

Mr. Buckley has written a fabulous book. I am a fifth grade teacher and this book has hooked many of my students from ELL to struggling readers to students in the gifted program! There are characters my students are unfamiliar with, such as the Pied Piper of Hamlin, so this has been a great learning opportunity. Also, who wouldn't want to have Snow White for their teacher? Mr. Buckley has a great way of weaving children's characters into a wonderful mystery with a surprise ending!
