Here it is Sunday morning 12/4/22, and once again I failed to post my Saturday Mornings for Kids recommendation. Here it is, late.
Recommended by a fourteen-year-old friend and prospective bookstore helper, The Sisters Grimm series promises to be something I want to look into.
Appropriately dark and GRIMM, the cover of the first book is scary enough to be a cover for the original Grimm brothers’ masterpiece. Judging from the copy my young friend donated to the bookstore, the Sisters Grimm are fairy-tale detectives, solving cases which are set in some of the Brothers’ most popular fairy-tales. The back cover’s blurb is as follows:
“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./ When a terrorizing giant goes on a rampage through the town, it’s up to the Sisters Grimm to stop him and solve the mystery of who set the giant loose in the first place.”
Mixing modern with traditional, the author promises a read of suspense, adventure, and hopefully, a bit of humor. Thumbing through, I would invite good readers from 5th or 6th grade and up to join me in investigating this series.
FUN READING FOR KIDS OF MANY AGES AND THIS “STILL A KID ADULT” AHEAD
