"I love this book. It is so entertaining and puts a twist on the classical fairytale characters." Margaret said.
"Great adventure series for kids. I preread the books I give to my grandson, nieces and nephews. Having worked in school and public libraries for 20 years, I know what trash is out there for children. At first I was shocked that the sisters were orphaned and abused in social service settings. But the underlying theme is loyalty to family and the search for their missing parents. The sisters develop great courage and manage to do the right thing in terrible conditions. A very imaginative series." Sandy A. said.
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have been shunted from one crazy foster family to the next. Every time they've had to run away. Why should they stay with a foster family when their real parents will show up and claim them? Finally, a family member is located. The long dead mother of their father. But when they get to Ferryport Landing they find out their parents might not have been entirely truthful with them.
How will Sabrina and Daphne handle living in a town full of fairy tale characters? Is Puck really that gross? Can Mr. Canis keep the Big Bad Wolf under control?
Rating: 5 out of 5
What I Think:
This is definitely my favorite children's series. There are fairy tale characters on every page. The books are full of battles, romance, gross liquids, and family. I fall in love with the characters every time I read this series. Sabrina is your typical, sarcastic pre-teen who just wants her family safe. Daphne is adorable and sweet but will beat you up if threatened. Granny Relda packs quite the punch. Mr. Canis will unleash his inner beast to protect the Grimms. Puck is just trying to deal with puberty and hormones. And Elvis wants to snuggle. Keeping up with this cast is the most fun you could ask for in a children's book.
“Puck stopped his drumming [on his belly] for a brief moment and grinned at Sabrina.
I hear they have a lot of plastic surgeons in New York City. If I were you I'd make an appointment for that face as soon as you get there," he quipped.
Sabrina scowled and shook a fist at him. "Keep it up, stinkpot, and you're going to need a plastic surgeon yourself."
Puck winked. "No need to get all mushy on me, Grimm.”
