Books | Juvenile Fiction / Fairy Tales & Folklore / Adaptations
First in the New York Times–bestselling series! “A world in which humans and fairy-tale creatures live side-by-side . . . Madcap adventure.” —School Library Journal Orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their newly discovered grandmother, Relda Grimm, in the strange town of Ferryport Landing. The girls soon learn a family secret: that they are descendants of the famous Brothers Grimm, whose book of fairy tales is actually a history book and whose characters are still alive in Ferryport, New York. When a terrorizing giant goes on a rampage through the town, it’s up to the Sisters Grimm to stop him and to solve the mystery of who set the giant loose in the first place. Was it corrupt Mayor Charming, formerly Prince Charming, who desperately wants his kingdom back? The Three Not-So-Little Pigs, the shifty town cops? Or Snow White or Jack the Giant Killer or one of the many other fairy-tale characters who seem to have it out for the young sisters Grimms? Fast paced, with familiar characters in new surroundings and adventure, and cleverly inserted vocabulary lessons, this book, and this series, are special for young readers. This anniversary edition of the beloved Sisters Grimm series is the perfect opportunity for existing fans to revisit the adventures of the Grimm family and for new readers to discover the magic of the series for the first time. “Kids will love Sabrina and Daphne’s adventures as much as I did.” —Sarah Michelle Gellar, star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Adventure, laughs, and surprises kept me eagerly turning the pages.” —R. L. Stine, New York Times–bestselling author of the Goosebumps series

"My daughter loved this series so much we listened to it every year from her 7th birthday till her 15th. I really enjoyed the richness of the world that naturally led to a study of the original Grimm Fairytales. I would highly recommend the audio as it is masterfully done. "
