When orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are sent to live with their newly-discovered grandmother, Grenny Relda, in the small town of Ferryport Landing, they’re introduced to a bizarre family heritage involving immortal fairytale characters. In a town where Snow White teaches school, Prince Charming is the mayor, the Three Pigs (in human form) are cops, and the so-called Everafters dwell in secret alongside regular mortals, it takes a very special kind of person to investigate when things go wrong. Now the Grimm sisters must contend with angry giants, monsters stalking the school, and secrets galore, all the while trying to find their missing parents. A wonderfully twisted take on old stories, and a great start to a new series, though rather reminiscent of Bill Willingham’s excellent Fables comic book series. Fans of The Spiderwick Chronicles and A Series of Unfortunate Events should check these books out.
