The Grimm Legacy, by Polly Shulman (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2010)

Elizabeth’s new job at the New-York Circulating Material Repository, which houses and lends out everything under the sun except books, takes an unexpected twist when she discovers the Grimm Collection, an array of magically-imbued fairy tale artifacts. Unfortunately, someone’s stealing the good stuff, replacing them with fakes, and if Elizabeth can’t help her co-workers find the culprit, she may lose more than her job. This whimsically inventive mystery provides a new and interesting twist on fairy tale tropes, making for a fast-paced, gripping read and hopefully spawning future installments.
