The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley
I loved this book. The Sisters Grimm - The Fairy Tale Detectives. This is the first book in a series and so far I think there are 8 books. I definitely plan on reading them all.
"For Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, life hasn't 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. Their first case? A roller-coaster ride of an adventure to stop a giant from destroying their new hometown."
This book grabbed my attention right away. It had the mystery, suspence, adventure that I found very entertaining. It is hard to give a review without any spoilers. Lots of different characters but not overpowering. The story flowed nicely right to the end.
Now I am on the search for a book The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tale book. Guess I am off to my favorite used book store first off. For any books that cost over $10 I head to this favorite store of mine. I call it the fire hazard store, piles and piles of books everywhere. It is in an old house, one of the upstairs bedrooms is just children's books. I could spend hours in there looking for a hidden treasure, and I have found many. I once asked the owner about the fire department, I was took they come and do regular inspections and the place passes.
