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.

Sabrina und Daphne können es kaum glauben. Sie sollen tatsächlich die Nachfahren der berühmten Brüder Grimm sein! Doch damit nicht genug: All die bekannten Märchenfiguren sind keine erfundenen Gestalten, sondern es gibt sie wirklich! »Grimms Märchen« sind Aufzeichnungen von Verbrechen, die die Famil...
I've been looking for a good series to dive into, something to temper the need to be in constant search of the next read. Unfortunately, I don't think this series will be the one, but not for the reasons you might think.Characters: Sabrina is smart, determined and protective of her younger sister; s...
