The Sisters Grimm come face to face with their parents kidnappers and are stunned when one of them happens to be the world's most famous fairy-tale character (hint, she wears red) and the other an unstoppable killing-machine known as the Jabberwocky. Without the now-dead Mr. Canis at their side, the girls have little hope that they'll ever be reunited with their mother and father. That is until their long-lost Uncle Jake returns home with stories of a weapon that can kill the beast but is so powerful it had to be destroyed. Now the girls must find the missing pieces so the deadly weapon can be reforged, but to get it done they'll have to go head-to-head with the Wizard of Oz, the Little Mermaid, and even the horrible witch Baba Yaga. To complicate matters, Sabrina begins to struggle with an addiction to magic and finds herself unraveling a real-life family mystery, the origins of which have caused suffering for generations of Grimms.

So far, this was the weakest in the series for me. The first had problems, but I was buoyed by my daughter's enthusiasm. The second seemed to improve - was generally more engaging and fast paced - and so I was expecting a bit more from the rest of the series. However, besides the Jabberwocky/Red Rid...
Sabrina is growing and trying to figure out who she really is and what she really believes, which, if I remember childhood correctly, is rather a difficult thing to do, and I think kids can relate to her. She tends to act before she thinks, and she'll dive headlong into any fray; what she lacks in f...
