    1. This was a playful and fun book, with a few flaws.Sabrina and Daphne s parents disapear one day out of the blue, and the police can t find them They bounce from one horrible foster home to another, until an old lady comes forward claiming to be their Grandmother This is weird, because their parents told them their Grandmother was dead When they meet her, she tells them that they are descended from The Brother s Grimm, who wrote down true events that occured with real creatures All of these creat [...]

    2. That s why crazy people are so dangerous You think they re nice until they re chaining you up in the garage You can find this review and all of my other reviews at Novel Descent Thanks for the support How did I miss this book in life Why did I never even hear about it Thankfully I have remedied this situation and read the book This is what I expect in a great middle grade novel This book was well written, had wonderful characters, great adventure, lots of humor and just an overall good time I ha [...]

    3. Needing something a little shorter to fit into my reading schedule, I turned to this series debut by Michael Buckley, which takes readers behind the scenes and into the stories of the Brothers Grimm Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have been shipped off from one foster home to another for many years What they re told that their paternal grandmother has agreed to take care of them, though Sabrina becomes very dubious, having heard that the woman died many years ago However, after meeting the slightly ecc [...]

    4. Michael Buckley begins this children s series with a compelling premise The stories of the brothers Grimm and other fairy tale originators Hans Christian Andersen, etc are all true In a Tolkien style spin, fairy tale creatures called Everafters used to coexist with humans, but since then they have been exiled to a small town near the suburbs of NYC The Grimm family is still around, monitoring the Everafters and suspicious crimes in the area.Unfortunately, this premise offers little compensation [...]

    5. Sabrina Grimm has a few problems 1 Her parents have disappered.2 She s the oldest sibling, and we all know what that means.3 She may or may not have Grandmother, who may or may not be crazy.4 She isn t a teenager yet, which means she only gets until 9 o clock.5 She can t open windows.6 She had foster parents who were way too partial to lima beans.7 She knows fashion impaired people.8 Some boy wants to drown her.While for children, this book will be enjoyed by adults The premise is somewhat simil [...]

    6. The night is young, and by the grace of magic, so are we 2 stars, even 2.5 stars at best.Unfortunately this didn t make me feel as young as I should be In fact, I felt bored and felt like reading this was a bit of a chore, which is sad Again it might have something to do with reading my previous book at the same time so I pretty much could say, out of the both of them this one was the lesser Daphne and several characters were the saving graces for me, whereas Sabrina merely dominated the narrati [...]

    7. The Fairy Tale Detectives is a pleasant audiobook read that fans of fairy tales young and those who are young at heart will probably enjoy I liked the idea that the Grimms were actually a real family of chroniclers whose legacy continues into the present Sisters Sabrina and Daphne make for likeable, fun protagonists I felt for them in that they had lost their parents and were adrift and lacking family and a home Their grandmother is the kind of gramps you dream of Although Sabrina was very argum [...]

    8. The best word for this little book is cute I think I put it on a shelf I call youth as in many ways it s very young and if my kids were small I d read it to them On the other hand there are jokes or humorous remarks that older readers will appreciate We start with two orphans who have ended up in the care of a dried up lady who dislikes kids but somehow ended up running an orphanage There have been a chain of.unfortunate foster parents to use a Lemony Snicketism Of course that may be a subjectiv [...]

    9. My ten year old sister reads all sorts of stuff, and I kind of feel a responsibility to make sure that what she s reading has some literary value Hence, my discovery of The Sisters Grimm series.My initial reaction was that the style of the writing didn t fit the heftiness of the book itself Weighing in at almost two hundred pages, I was expecting a little literary depth The premise is fun bringing fairy tale characters to life and using two ordinary girls as the protagonists definitely appeals [...]

    10. The best word for this little book is cute I think I put it on a shelf I call youth as in many ways it s very young and if my kids were small I d read it to them On the other hand there are jokes or humorous remarks that older readers will appreciate We start with two orphans who have ended up in the care of a dried up lady who dislikes kids but somehow ended up running an orphanage There have been a chain of.unfortunate foster parents to use a Lemony Snicketism Of course that may be a subjectiv [...]

    11. This is a light hearted and faced paced book It s slightly snarky humor and slap stick action sequences are designed to appeal to younger readers For fans of fairy tales and fairy tale retellings, the definition of fairy tales used here is annoyingly broad included are characters from L Frank Baum, Lewis Carroll, and Rudyard Kipling Also, the author does little with these characters to make them his own The book s many cliches may be new to the target audience, but will taste stale to many adult [...]

    12. I LOVED THIS I knew this was going to include fairytale characters, but this was like a Once Upon a Time for middle grade readers There is a town seemingly in the middle of nowhere where these fairytale creatures are stuck It is up to the Grimm family to keep everyone in line and to solve the mysteries around town We meet so many well known characters but with twists on them We have a glutinous Charming, and a good Big Bad Wolf Gilda the Good Witch is pretty neutral and the Grimm family is full [...]

    13. Sabrina can t believe that her grandmother thinks fairy tales are real She really can t believe that fairy tale characters live right in Ferryport She really, really, really can t believe that a local farm house didn t blow up and was really stepped on by a giant But then Mayor Charming and Glinda the Good Witch are involved in a cover up and a giant kidnaps Granny Grimm The Grimm sisters know they need to help and enlist the help of Shakespeare s Puck, Jack the Giant Killer, and the Magic Mirro [...]

    14. I love fairy tales Any wonder that when I spied The Fairy Tale Detectives at my local library, I had to borrow it The book is the first in a series called The Sisters Grimm With there being six books in the set, I d have my reading set for a month Unfortunately, my love of fairy tales is what left me less than happy with this book.The book s first chapter reminded of the popular The Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket, both in set up and tone The Grimms sisters are orphans and their par [...]

    15. I was first attracted to this series by the cover art which is beautifully illustrated by Peter Ferguson and really set the mood of the story with just the right amount of creepiness and gives an accurate image of the two sisters in the story I loved that the story was dedicated to his grandparents Basil and Relda Gandee and he even used his grandmother s name in the story I enjoyed the dark silhouettes of children and fairy tale characters that appear at the beginning of each chapter It gave th [...]

    16. Love the originality to collect princes princesses, heroes, fairies, giants and magicians from original works in the same place and make them LIVE It changes and reinterprets these classical characters in a smart and interesting ways.

    17. Appealing notion, but the writing and characterization were not strong enough to hold my interest Maybe if I were ten Although even then I m not sure, because none of the characters really appealed to me The orphaned kids discovering special magical heritage has been done a lot better.

    18. The sister Sabrina and Daphne go through many foster homes, but finnally end up in the house of their grandma grimm Everything is going just fine for the family other than sabrina thinking grandma Grimm is Crazy, but then she starts to beleive when a giant carries away their grandma Read the sisters Grimm to find out how they get their grandma back.

    19. Very cute, fun, lively I adored little Daphne and the wild Great Dane Elvis The story has great dynamic, and I really want to keep reading these fairy tale detective like retellings Highly entertaining.

    20. What really made me pick up this book and read it is the fact that it s about the Grimm s fairy tales I can t resist anything to do with the Brothers Grimm or fairy tales in general, and this little mystery series was just perfect for what it is Now I m not calling it a literary masterpiece, but for 9 and 10 year old girls, this is got to be one of the best series out there.Despite the fact that most of this series has to do with wild, crazy, fairy tale happenings, the two main characters Sabrin [...]

    21. Orphans Sabrina 11 year old and Daphne 7 year old go to live with their grandmother who they thought was dead in the town of Ferryport Landing After the disappearance of their parents, they go through numerous foster homes They soon find out that their grandmother is a very strange person who says that the town is filled with fairy tale beings.Daphne believes her, Sabrina does not, until their grandmother gets kidnapped by a Giant that is the cause for the destruction in the town Sabrina and Dap [...]

    22. Sabrina and Daphne Grimm s parents, their only known family, have disappeared After a year and a half in and out of foster homes, the girls find out that they have a grandma they ve never heard of They arrive at her house only to be informed that the girls come from a long line of fairy tale detectives For the last 200 years, they ve been cleaning up magical problems in the town of Ferryport Landing, a town filled with characters from fairy tales and children s literature The girls have to figur [...]

    23. This is a fun book, a mystery set in a small town where all the fairy tale characters actually, all characters from children t literature have come to live quietly among humans I had a hard time with the older of the two girls She was mistrustful of grownups to the point of annoyance, but by the end I liked her as well as her sister This is the first in a series, and I m looking forward to reading the others I really loved the descriptions of the different characters, like the Queen of Hearts wi [...]

    24. Last Cristmas I recived the Sisters grimm series as my present from my uncle and his girlfriend After reading the back, I put them on my bookshelf About a year later I uncoved them, having nothing else to read, I curled up and started the first book 3 days later, I hade finised the series Now I love them They are my all time favorite books, and I am recomending them to everyone So if you are looking for books to read, these are your books

    25. This book was better than I was expecting It was just a normal day and I was out of books to read, so, after rumaging through my parents bookshelves, I came across this book I picked it up and thought Just another children s book that will have no meaning, I guess I ll give it a try As soon as I start reading I m sucked into this children s book that is full of fantasy and connections to the classic fairy tales This is a quick and satisfactory read.

    26. A couple of years ago the parents of Sabrina Grimm and her younger sister Daphne vanished without a trace or an explanation, and since then the two girls have bounced from one ghastly foster home to the next In the latest development, they ve been claimed by a woman who says she s their long lost grandmother which is odd, because Sabrina distinctly remembers her father telling her their grandmother was dead Still, anything to get out of the orphanage .In Ferryport Landing, somewhere in upper Ne [...]

    27. 3.5 starsThis was a cute book intended for middle graders Two orphaned sisters are sent to live with their grandmother They are very suspicious because their parents had told them that their grandparents were dead They become even suspicious because the house where their grandmother lives is quite peculiar It turns out that the sisters are part of the Grimm family and they play a special role in town I enjoyed listening to this book If you like the graphic novel series Fables or watched fractur [...]

    28. First time reading this book, although it s been on my TBR for ages I m pleased Maria Jo recommended this to me for a Monopoly game It was pretty similar to my expectations, so I have no faults with it I like the whole idea that view spoiler the fairy tale people were called Everafters, and they existed in this town without being able to get out as long as the Grimms lived hide spoiler I loved seeing the fairy tale characters represented in this book, the way Beauty and the Beast view spoiler bi [...]

    29. I ve read many fantasy stories growing up, but never in a million years would I think I would read a book of many fairy tales You probably are thinking what middle schooler would want to read this book It s so cheesy But trust me it s nothing like that The author Michael Buckley took these fairy tale characters such as Shakespeare s Puck, The Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Jack and The Beanstalk ,and the Giants, Momma Bear, The Big Bad Wolf, etc and turned them into a mature version of them He [...]
