The Sisters Grimm

The Fairy Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm, Book 1) (Bk. 1)

*WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILERS* The Sisters Grimm is a great series I read a year ago. There are eight books, in which I've read. This is the cover for the first book. This book is about two girls-Sabrina (who is eleven) and Daphne (who is seven). They have to go to an orphanage because their parents were kidnapped. And all that was left of there parents was a blood red hand print on the window of their car. The kids had been adopted by plenty of crazy people, but they always ran away. And now, they have been adopted by their supposedly dead grandmother, Relda Grimm. When they get to their grandmothers house weird things begin to happen. The lightning bugs outside bite, they are locked into the house, their grandmothers friend is mean (Mr. Canis), their grandmother thinks that fairy tale characters a real (she calls them Everafters), and finally her grandmother, and Mr. Canis are kidnapped by a giant. They must work together with Puck ( from the midsummers night dream) and Jack the giant killer (from jack and the beanstalk). They must use magic, sneak into mansions and talk to magic mirrors to save their grandmother and Mr. Canis.
This book was such a thrill to read and I re-read it from time to time. :)
