I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I liked this story. It is not a re-telling of fairy tales with different endings, but a story of how the fairy tale creatures are alive and living in a modern day time. Of course fairy tale creatures would have to deal with many things, and we certainly see the other side of their personalities. Not a deep drama, but a light hearted mystery with a different perspective.
If you like Roald Dahl books then you should like this one as well.
This is a great story. Short and interesting. I'll be looking for more Doyle books, especially narrated in this fashion.
This is book 2, start with The Fairy Tales Detectives: The Sisters Grimm as book 1.
You have got to listen to these with your kids. Beware! This story ends abruptly without a resolution. You MUST get The Problem Child: The Sisters Grimm to have on hand. You won't be able to stop! These are so punk rock! (you'll get this comment once you start the series)
