The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives introduces readers to sisters Daphne and Sabrina, descendants of the famous brothers Grimm, who have come to live with their Granny Relda in Ferryport Landing, New York. Although Ferryport seems to be a rather quiet and peaceful little town, on closer inspection it is anything but quiet. Populated with “Everafters”, those immortal fairy tale characters, as well as mere mortals, Ferryport Landing is a hub of strange goings on. As the girls begin to untangle the various strands of family secrets they become involved with tales of huge mysterious footprints, rumors of giants running loose and Jack, the original giant killer, who wants to relive his glory days. And then there’s the problem with that pesky Puck . Whose side is all of these strange people on, anyway? How will Sabrina and Daphne ever sort it out? Read this book for the laughs as well as the mystery. (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
