I found the plot extremely hurried, and the characters rather flat. I like my fairy tales to come with a side-helping of redemption. ( )

Cute fairytale-with-a-twist story. A bit of the Pied Piper, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty mixed together, told with a Lemony Snicket style. ( )

Be insteresting to see if this will be popular enough for the sequel the author pretty clearly has in mind to actually happen. ( )

Storm and her two sisters go on an adventure to escape the evil Dr. Dewilde and various other villians along the way. It all starts when their mom dies after giving birth to Any, and gives Storm a pipe which she is told to use wisly. Then their father leaves and they are forced to leave their home to get away from Dewilde. Later they learn that the pipe can control the people around it when played. They also learn that if Dewilde gets gets the pipe he will become un-stoppable. So with the help of some friends and each other they are able to stop Dewilde and keep the pipe safe. In the very end Storm throws the pipe into the ocean so nobody can use it's power for evil again.
I loved this book. It was adventureous,funny amd every thing else. It is a mix of multiple fairytales combined into one fantastic book. I would recomend this book to anyone that likes fariy tales or the Grimm brothers. It is a good kids and adults book. It is the type of book that you can read over and over again. Anyone who dosen't like it is completly insane. ( )

Combining some elements from the fairy tales of Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel, and the Pied Piper of Hamlin among others…Gardner weaves a story of sisterhood and adventure. Aurora, Storm, and Anything are as different as any sisters can be, but their love for one another holds them together through parental abandonment and great peril from the villainous Dr. DeWilde. Fans of the Sisters Grimm Series will love this book! Fantastic read-aloud! Ages 9-12 ( )
