    Daphne's lucky enough to get Snow White for a teacher - she loves little people - but poor Sabrina's stuck with Mr. Grumpner and a class of mildly psychotic sixth graders. When Mr. Grumpner is found hanging in a spider's web, it is up to the Grimms to find the Everafter who did it. If only Sabrina can get over her distrust of all fairy-tale folk. But how can she trust those who just might be responsible for the disappearance of her parents?

    Story
    What did you love best about The Sisters Grimm?

    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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Puck is admonishing his "troupes" is hysterical! I also love the first time the girls step into Puck's room.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    6th Grade is always hard, but for Sabrina, it could be monstrous!


    Any additional comments?

    You may want to buy book 3 so you can continue the story soon since this one ends on quite a cliffhanger!
