Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Deirdre Root
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm aren't just little girls: they are part of THOSE Grimms, and their family doesn't write fairy tales but chronicles their adventures as detectives for fairy-tale characters. In this fourth book in the series, the two girls (along with Granny Relda and some strange companions) head for their hometown of New York to find their friend Puck's family. When Puck's father is killed, Faerie is in an uproar, and the girls are on the case. Wall Street pirates, dwarves in the subway and the kindly Wizard of Oz both help and hinder them along the way to solving the murder as well as the mystery of their mother's secret life. A quick, fun read, recommended for school and public libraries. Reviewer: Deirdre Root

    the awesomest book EVER

    This book is great! What happens is is once the girls get to Faery,they have another mystery to solve! They must find out who killed Oberon(pucks dad) and also they travel with Puck's so-called girlfriend Moth. They meet Scrooge, six outta seven dwarves, and Pucks family. They discover Cobweb as the suspect. Unfortunately, they are tangled up with Ms. Mirvena Smirt. Luckily, they escape. Once they get back to Faery, they're about to see Scrooge again. But Moth holds Sabrina back, and has a toast since Puck is gonna break outta his healing vessel in five minutes. But Sabrina is severly poisoned and no ones there to save her. Will she be saved? when she's about to die, Will Puck break outta his healing vessel in time to save her?

    This book, although about a crime, could never be called a crime!

    I love all of the Sisters Grimm books, but this was by far the best, because it actually takes place in a real and well- known area of the world, and although none of the Sisters Grimm books are at all realistic, this one was the most realistic because it actually takes place in a real city and it mentions many very real places in Manhattan. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

    great book! great to read by yourself or with younger family members

    The fourth installment in the series, Once Upon a Crime experiences a change in scenery and in supporting characters. In a welcome change from the setting of the first three books, the Grimm family travel from Fairy Port Landing to New York City in order to save Puck who was injured in the previous book. Throughout the book, many new Everafters, fairy tale characters, are introduced. These characters range from the Gingerbread Man to Sinbad. Buckley's interesting take on classic fairytales are especially evident as the Grimms travel all across New York City to try and find the answer to the murder of the king of Faerie, an 'underground' kingdom of the everafters in New York City and along the way, make shocking discoveries about their mother. The story is fast paced and the plot and storyline along with Sabrina's many sarcastic and witty comments and banter with her family make a winning combination. C.M.
