The Fairy-Tale Detectives

The Fairy-Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley is the first book in the Sisters Grimm series, and it was terrific.  The story is about two sisters, Daphne and Sabrina, who learn that they are in-fact family members of the famous Grimm brothers.  To make things even more interesting, the girls discover that the brothers’ fairy tales are actually cases that they were working on.  It is now up to the sisters to take over monitoring the magical realm that is outside of town, which of course leads to all kinds of magical adventures.  This was a really cute story and is perfect for grades third through fifth.  The story has enough mystery to keep your young reader’s interest, but nothing too terrible scary.   The end is sure to leave you wanting more, so don’t be surprised if your reader wants book two right away.
