Book Review: Sisters Grimm

Some of our second grade girls challenged themselves to begin reading harder chapter books this spring. The series they choose is Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley. So far, I've only read the first one, Sisters Grimm: Fairytale Detectives, which introduces the sisters Daphne and Sabrina who are orphans sent to live with a grandmother they didn't even know they had!

Granny Relda lives in the world of the Everafters where things are never quite what they seem. Here the girls find out their connection to the famous Grimm Brothers and meet all sorts of fairy tale characters. As with any good fairy tale, some are good and some are very bad!

Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley has a link with a Reading Guide - PDF file. Also at this site is loads more information to explore about each of the books in the series.

The second grade readers finished book three, and now move to the public library for summer reading to finish the series.

Book Nine, Council of Mirrors is the final book in the series.

I tried to upload a video of a student giving her book report, but no luck...here instead is the video trailer by Michael Buckley instead. Sorry, girls!
