Sisters Grimm, The #1: The Fairy Tale Detectives

Series: Sisters Grimm, The (Book #1)
by Michael Buckley Illustrated by Peter Ferguson

In the tradition of Lemony Snicket's "Series of Unfortunate Events" and Holly Black's "The Spiderwick Chronicles" comes a new humorous mystery of fantastic circumstances, "The Sisters Grimm."

When orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm, who lives in a strange town in New York state, known for its extraordinary number of unexplained and unusual crimes, they begin to unravel a mystery that leads to their ancestors' magical beginnings.

Sabrina and Daphne find out they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, who were actually detectives of the magical phenomenon perpetrated by the Everafters, a parallel race of magical beings. They soon learn it is the Grimm family's legacy to keep the Everafters in line and the two sisters are the sole heirs to this challenge!
