Cute book (jf) about two sisters who discover they are the heirs of the Grimm brothers and it falls to them to keep Fairyport Landing's humans and Ever Afters separate. ( )

Sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have been in and out of fosters home for the past year since the disappearance of their parents. Now the social worker is sending them to an old lady who claims to be their grandmother whom the girls previously had been told was dead. Granny Relda reveals to Sabrina and Daphne that they are descendants of Wilhelm Grimm of the Brothers Grimm and that the small town they now live in is inhabited by fairy tale characters. Can they take on the family task of being fairy-tale detectives when things go wrong? Naturally, this book draws on its fairy tale base for many of its characters, but the characters have evolved and changed from how they are portrayed in the classic fairy tales. Occasional black and white illustrations are dotted throughout the book. Retellings and adaptations of fairy tales and folk tales do seem to be an ‘in’ thing right now so this book series should be well received by kids in grades four through six. ( )

Epigraph
THE DENSE FOREST BRANCHES scratched at their faces and arms, but Sabrina and Daphne couldn't stop runny, though they had long since passed the point of exhaustion. Fear was fueling each step now.

Another thunderous bellow rang in the distance, followed by the terrible sound of falling trees and shrieking animals.

"We have to find a way to stop it," Daphne cried between gasps.

Sabrina knew her little sister was right. But how? They were two children versus a vicious monster.

"I'll think of something," Sabrina said, dragging her sister behind an enormous oak tree for a much-needed rest. Sabrina squeezed her sister's hand to reassure her, while she forced oxygen into her own burning lungs. Her words were empty. She didn't have a plan. The only thing going on in her head was the thumping of blood roaring through her eardrums. But it made no difference. It had found them. Splintering wood and damp soil rained from the sky as the tree they stood next to was violently uprooted.

The two girls looked up into the horrible face above them and felt hot breath blow through their hair.


What's happened to our lives? Sabrina wondered. When had their world become unrecognizable? And what had happened to her, the eleven-year-old girl who only two days ago had been just an orphan on a train?
Dedication
In memory of my grandparents, Basil and Relda Gandee
First words
I'm going to die of boredom here, Sabrina Grimm thought as she looked out the train window at Ferryport Landing, New York.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810993228, Paperback)

In paperback for the first time, the Sisters Grimm take readers to a world where fairy tales are fact and not everyone is who they seem!

In book one of this bestselling series, sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their mysterious grandmother, Relda Grimm. The sisters learn they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous book of fairy tales is actually a collection of case files. The girls are the latest in a long line of fairy-tale detectives, and their new hometown is filled with Everafters (as magical folks like to be called)—some good and some very, very bad. When a mysterious Everafter sets a giant loose on the town, it’s up to the Sisters Grimm to save the day.
