Children's LiteratureThis is book two in "The Sisters Grimm" series, which features sisters Sabrina and Daphne who solve mysteries with the help or the intrusion of Granny Relda and Elvis, their Great Dane. Their town of Ferryport Landing is populated with many Everafters. The Everafters are fairy-tale characters who escaped and use disguises along with a little magic to fit in with the humans in town. Only the sisters, descendants of the Brothers Grimm know the secrets of the Everafters and somehow the sisters are the town's sleuths who assist Sheriff Hamstead—who is actually one of the three little pigs—in coping with problems and criminal behavior. As the story unfolds, character after character, including Little Miss Muffet, Puck and Snow White, comes on the scene in a manner sure to bring laughs from kids who like a clever new story offering plenty of "Ah, ha!" moments as they recognize characters from stories of long ago. 2005, Amulet Books/Harry N. Abrams, Ages 8 to 12.
