Publisher's Summary

The recently orphaned Sisters Grimm find out from their Granny, who they thought was dead, that they're descendents of the legendary Brothers Grimm. Now they must take over the family responsibility of being fairy tale detectives in a town where fairy tales are real. Their first case: a giant is destroying the town and it may have something to do with a boy named Jack and a certain famous beanstalk.

Funny twists

I liked this story. It is not a re-telling of fairy tales with different endings, but a story of how the fairy tale creatures are alive and living in a modern day time. Of course fairy tale creatures would have to deal with many things, and we certainly see the other side of their personalities. Not a deep drama, but a light hearted mystery with a different perspective.

If you like Roald Dahl books then you should like this one as well.

Not My Cup of Tea, but the KIDS Dig it.

This isn't a book, I'd normally download and listen to, but the kids were growing troubled by listening to Dante's Inferno on the way to school. 9 and 11-year olds can be so damn fickle. Once we got to the 7th circle of Hell my kids (both OK with heresy but not OK with violence) were ready to bail on me, Virgil and Dante.

So, finding myself now lost with my kids (and without an audiobook to distract me from their constant questions about truth and beauty) while driving through the woods, I decided to download the Sisters Grimm. Definitely more my kids' speed.

It was kind of slow in talking about the story

The narrator was great with the voices. I loved that he had a special voice for each of them

Somewhat disappointed

Reminiscent of Once Upon A Time. Similar storyline and characters. Not bad if you hadn’t watched the show.

Perfect Modern Take on Fairy Tales

We listened to the recording on a family trip. Everyone (spanning three generations) loved it from the oldest to the youngest. Ganser had a great delivery style and makes Buckley’s delightful characters come alive.

I’m in my twenties

I started reading these in when I was in 5th grade and absolutely fell in love. I read them to students now, and STILL enjoy them as an adult. Also L. J. Ganser is a phenomenal narrator!!
