    Shameless book addict whose life was made immeasurably happier when I discovered audiobooks made housework tolerable and long drives a joy.

    "Hysterically demented takes on the old favorites"

    The Fairy-Tale Detectives breathes hysterically funny new life into all the old favorites. In the world of Sabrina, Daphne, and Relda Grimm the folk of fairy tales are alive and living as neighbors, friends, and even enemies. Watching a favorite character cope with the modern world, display unexpected foibles, or interact with characters well outside their own stories is intoxicating and fun. The sisters and their friend Puck display all the affection, friendship, and spirited rivalry one would expect in siblings, all the while making parents thank the heavens their children can't get up to magical hijinks. I've rarely read a series of books so creative, engaging, and full of laughs. Reading them never fails to lift my spirits. The only downside the books have is the stitch you'll get in your side.

    "Not just a childrens book"

    I thought I'd try this because audible had on sale. I was not disappointed. Cute, funny, charming, in more ways than one. The fairy-tale detectives starts out really well in this first book in series. I will most likely get the next because it was so amusing.
