What I enjoy most about The Sisters Grimm is the vividness of the characters. The entire story--as presumably it is in all of the other books--is told from Sabrina's perspective (the oldest Sister Grimm) and the emotional turmoil that she goes through in the story extended from the first book is well portrayed and, I think, could be a good teaching tool for young listeners. For example, Sabrina has a hard time trusting other "ever afters" because she knows that one of them kidnapped her parents. Her Granny Relda tries to help her see past her angry bigotry and in the end she learns some important lessons.
I think the book would be more enjoyable if it didn't end on such an awful cliffhanger! (No, it's still good. Listen to this book)
The scene where Puck is admonishing his "troupes" is hysterical! I also love the first time the girls step into Puck's room.
6th Grade is always hard, but for Sabrina, it could be monstrous!
You may want to buy book 3 so you can continue the story soon since this one ends on quite a cliffhanger!
