    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?

    What did you love best about The Sisters Grimm?

    It's full of warmth, fun, adventure, magic, mystery and humor.


    What about L. J. Ganser’s performance did you like?

    Awesome voices. You can't always tell there aren't 5 different people reading to you instead of one great talent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I easily could have listened to it start to finish if time permitted.


    Any additional comments?

    I make sure I have the next book in my queue before I finish one so I have no interuption between books. What an great series

    Multiple award-winning author Michael Buckley's New York Times best-selling Sisters Grimm series is phenomenally popular. In their fourth adventure, Sabrina, Daphne, Granny Relda, and Puck hit the streets of New York City to search for Puck's family. They quickly get wrapped up in a murder investigation, however, when a maniacal Everafter is discovered to be on the loose.

    What did you love best about Sisters Grimm: Once Upon a Crime?

    These books are so much fun. Funny, warm and exciting to read


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grandma is my favorite. She's so warm to the girls and goes with what she feels not worrying about what others think. And that accent makes me smile

    Thomas Abbey is a man stuck in a rut. To kick-start his life, he takes a sabbatical to work on a biography of his favorite writer, the mysterious Marshall France. Although Abbey has been warned that France's daughter, Anna, has blocked all previous attempts at her father's biography, he is surprised to find her the soul of small-town hospitality and quite excited about Abbey's proposal. Even stranger than Anna's behavior, though, is the town itself. The people seem to know what their future holds - freak accidents and all - down to the hour.

    What did you like best about The Land of Laughs? What did you like least?

    The first 1/2 to 3/4 of the story was great. But then it turned strange with no apparent reason for it or build up. So far fetched. I was lost and confused

    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    Where does Fablehaven, Book 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Light and fun story


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of E. B. Stevens?

    He would have been fine if he didn't read like he was talking to a four year old
