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?

“Enormously entertaining, the book takes the fractured fairy-tale genre to new heights.” —Time Out New York Kids

“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”
