Description

Fans of fractured fairy tales will be delighted to discover the fantasy, mystery, adventure, and humor in the beloved New York Times bestselling Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley, now with new cover art!  For Sabrina Grimm, living in a community of fairy-tale characters means always being ready for trouble. And something is definitely wrong at her new school. The adults seem too angry, the kids seem too mean, and the gym teacher likes dodgeball way too much. Of course, her little sister, Daphne, is having the time of her life. (Who wouldn't, with Snow White for a teacher—she's great with little people!) But when Sabrina's teacher, Mr. Grumpner, is found dead, dangling in a giant spiderweb, even Daphne's convinced that Ferryport Landing Elementary has a monster problem. Can the Sisters Grimm get to the bottom of this sticky situation? "Kids will love Sabrina and Daphne's adventures as much as I did." —Sarah Michelle Gellar, star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I Know What You Did Last Summer "Adventure, laughs, and surprises kept me eagerly turning the pages." —R. L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series "Why didn't I think of The Sisters Grimm? What a great concept!" —Jane Yolen, award-winning author "Terrific, head-spinning series . . . Rich in well-set-up surprises and imaginatively tweaked characters, this tongue-in-cheek frolic features both a pair of memorable young sleuths and a madcap plot with plenty of leads into future episodes." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Enormously entertaining, the book takes the fractured fairy-tale genre to new heights." —Time Out New York Kids "An idea that will make other children's book writers, and tons of aspiring ones, kick themselves for not thinking of it first." —The San Antonio Express-News "A page-turner that incorporates humor, tension, suspense and a wild cast of characters, readers will have trouble putting this novel down." —The Dallas Morning News "Quirky and reasonable characters, engaging writing, fresh fairy tale references, and a very real fantasy setting." —The Raleigh News and Observer, "Most Promising New Series" "The twists and turns of the plot, the clever humor, and the behind-the-scenes glimpses of Everafters we think we know, will appeal to many readers." —Kliatt, starred review
