SummaryAdd a Summary
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm bounce from foster home to foster home after the disappearance of their parents. Eventually they are sent to live with their grandmother (Granny Relda), who they thought was dead, and she reveals that they have two famous ancestors, the brothers Grimm.
Granny Relda tells them that the book written by the brothers Grimm is actually a case file of magical mischief and that they now have to continue the family business of being fairy-tale detectives. What’s their first case? Read the first book to find out! I absolutely adore this book! What a fascinating story!
Entertaining story with very likable characters. If you like mystery, humor and action this is the perfect book to read. Grimms are at the very heart of fairy tales and now we see it from the family point of view. Girl power is a plus.
Sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are sent to live with their grandmother in Ferryport Landing in New York, the grandmother which they formerly believed dead, approximately a year and a half after the disappearance of their parents. They are soon met with a surprising discovery - they find out that fairy tale creatures, better known as "Everafters", exist, after said "dead" grandmother is kidnapped along with her friend Mr Canis by a giant. Sabrina and Daphne, with the help of a shape-shifting fairy named Puck, a Mirror, and a short guy called Jack who speaks really, really weirdly, have to find and save their grandmother, and solve the mystery of What is Going On Here?
For Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, life has not been a fairy tale. After the mysterious disappearance of their parents, the sisters are sent to live with their grandmother--a woman they believed was dead! Granny Relda reveals that the girls have two famous ancestors, the Brothers Grimm, whose classic book of fairy tales is actually a collection of case files of magical mischief. Now the girls must take on the family responsibility of being fairy tale detectives.

"You're kidding, right?" said Sabrina hopefully. "You're not going to let that smelly kid stay here with us?"
