    The recently orphaned Sisters Grimm find out from their Granny, who they thought was dead, that they're descendents of the legendary Brothers Grimm. Now they must take over the family responsibility of being fairy tale detectives in a town where fairy tales are real. Their first case: a giant is destroying the town and it may have something to do with a boy named Jack and a certain famous beanstalk.

    Would you try another book from Sue Henry and/or Lee Adams?

    Have read other Sue Henry books and they were good. This one could have put rocks to sleep.


    Has The End of the Road turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lee Adams?

    Barbara Rosenblat


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    some of the Alaska descriptions were interesting.
