Publisher's Summary

In book two of the series, the Sisters Grimm start school at Ferryport Landing Elementary. 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?

Tied with the Riordan books as son's favorites

What made the experience of listening to The Sisters Grimm the most enjoyable?

My son can't put these books down, and eagerly waited for the next installment. Other than the Riordan series, I haven't seen him that anxious to get the next book downloaded.

What did you like best about this story?

All of the allusions to fairy tales and other well-known stories.

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

My 12 year old came close -- certainly was anxious each evening (our time to listen to books on tape) to get this playing.

Any additional comments?

From an adult perspective I didn't love this series as much as my son -- but I would definitely recommend it to kids in his age group.

This is the second book in this series and I am hooked on them now. I know that they are kids books, but they are enjoyable and fun.

Fairy Tales come to life

In this book two sisters meet fairy tale characters and find out that they are not always how the story portrays them. The girls are funny and brave. They don't always do what they are told to do. This is a fun book for a tween or grown-up with a playful spirit.

Very funny!!

This is book 2, start with The Fairy Tales Detectives: The Sisters Grimm as book 1.

You have got to listen to these with your kids. Beware! This story ends abruptly without a resolution. You MUST get The Problem Child: The Sisters Grimm to have on hand. You won't be able to stop! These are so punk rock! (you'll get this comment once you start the series)

A fun story but several problems

The narrator is positively cringe-worthy, and I get really annoyed by mystery characters who are supposed to be smart but can't figure anything out until they're told, but it was worth the couple days it took to listen to.

great series for adults too

Listening from an adult's point of view, I find many similarities in these stories to real life. And some interesting ways to handle things. fun series.

Fun story, but have breathing was distracting.

I'm becoming a fan of the Sisters Grimm stories, but the narrator's character affectations could use some work. At times it was difficult to tell which European accent was meant to represent which character, and gender affectations were even worse. Obviously narrating a book requires breathing, I didn't expect it to require heavy breathing into the recording equipment.
