Great Use of Fairy Tale Characters!

Ah yes, once upon a time in Grimmlandia... I do love a good fractured fairytale! And while Cinderella is not usially my favored princess, I found her much more likable in this rendition of the tale.

Cinda (Cinderella prefers that here) finds going to school can be fun at Grimm Academy even though her wretched as always half-sisters Malorette and Odette go there as well. Cinda discovers some friends of her own (With names like Rapunzel, Snow and Red *snicker*) and the lot of them work to discover *que dramatic music* the E.V.I.L. Society (Exceptional Villains in Literature, something I imagine we will be seeing a lot of in upcoming books in the Grimmtastic Girls Series) and what it is up to.

I really enjoyed reading this book, both from a juvenile and adult perspective. It felt enjoyable and age-appropriately giggly (Is that a word?) I loved having the familiar characters interacting and making relevant choices in our current day world.

Throughout time, parables, analogies, and fairy tales have been used to get a message across to the population that the would understand and remember when the time was right for them. I feel that both the Grimmtastic Girls Series and the Goddess Girls are a modern way to get some good messages across. Things like Friendship and it's importance, Being Honest, Following Rules, Obeying Your Parents, etc. For those reasons as well as many others, I wish Ms. Holub and Ms. Williams much success.

Rating: 4 Stars ***
