The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives - by Michael Buckley
Why did it take me so long to try this wonderful series? The writing is fantastic, the story a fresh new take on the old fairy tales, and the characters absolutely hilarious. One sister is sweet and trusting, the other tough and independent, and their grandmother zany, lovable, and surprisingly powerful. This is an adventure, a drama, a mystery, and a fantasy tale all wrapped into one delightful story. This series, by the author of N.E.R.D.S., is sure to please a wide array of readers. Don't believe me? Read the book, then we'll talk. But watch out for that giant!
