Nancy Drew meets Shrek in this funny, exciting new series of mysteries set in a community of fairy-tale characters. In the second book, The Sisters Grimm (Book Two): The Unusual Suspects , girl detectives Sabrina and Daphne Grimm start school at Ferryport Landing Elementary. If there is one thing they’ve learned since they moved in with Granny Grimm, it’s that having fairy-tale characters as neighbors means facing the unexpected. And sure enough, their new school is full of surprises. Daphne’s lucky enough to get Snow White for a teacher-she’s so good with little people-but poor Sabrina’s stuck in Mr. Grumpner’s class, where the students are either sleepy or psychotic and her teacher is teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Is this just typical sixth-grade suffering or is there something seriously wrong at the school? When Mr. Grumpner is found dangling from the classroom ceiling in a spider web, even sunny Daphne is convinced that Ferryport Landing Elementary has a monster problem. Can the Sisters Grimm solve the crime?
The Sisters Grimm are a welcome addition to the ranks of literary girl sleuths, and their adventures are sure to enchant.
