STUDENT REVIEW - Fairy Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley

Fairy Tale Detectives (Sisters Grimm Book #1)
By Michael Buckley
Published by Abrams, Harry N., Inc, 2007
312 pages (paperback)

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.

The book never calmed down; there was always one adventure after another and always full of suspense. This book could elaborate a little more on the personalities of the characters. Yes, [middle schoolers should read this book] because the vocabulary isn’t difficult and the book is not too long and always kept you full of suspense!
