Looking for a fun and engrossing read for your child or just something light and fun for yourself? Meet Daphne and Sabrina Grimm, two sisters who learn they are actually descendants of the Brothers Grimm. After their parents mysteriously disappear they go to live with their grandmother in Fairyport Landing, a town created by the Brothers Grimm to keep all of the everafters (fairytale characters) safe from the outside world. These books have appearances from all of your favorite fairytale characters (Snow White, Cinderella, The Big Bad Wolf, etc) and the girls solve fairytale mysteries and try to find out just what happened to their parents, while still trying to get along as sisters and adapt to this new life where fairytale characters are true, and even some live with them! These books are highly entertaining and easy to read, but also teach children vocabulary (younger sister Daphne continually asks sister Sabrina what words mean) and deal with issues of fairness, segregation, equality, and getting along with others. This is truly a wonderful series, Michael Buckley is a very talented writer. Look for his second series out this fall!
