I have recently read The Sisters Grimm series up until the seventh book – they are packed full of fairy tales, but are for kids like me.
The first book starts it all when Sabrina and Daphne`s parents are kidnapped. Then the sisters are put in an orphanage where the case worker sends them to live with their “dead” grandmother. Sabrina is a stubborn 11-year-old girl who wants no part of the fairy tale mystery. Daphne, Sabrina’s younger sister, is seven-years-old and nice, charming and kind-hearted to almost every one.
Then they meet Puck, an obnoxious, rude, insulting, mean, EVIL prankster and 400-year-old Everafter whom Sabrina enjoys insulting. The adventure and emotion begins.
In the second book, Puck saves them from rabid bunnies. In the third book, they meet Rumpelstiltskin at their new school. In the fourth book, they encounter a Jabberwocky and Little Red Riding Hood. In number five, they enter and find tears in time thanks to the older Daphne, Sabrina and Puck.
In the sixth book, they meet Goldilocks and the three bears. Cool huh?
You should read the Sisters Grimm series. They are neither too hard or too easy and that’s why I love them. Also, almost all my friends were reading them so I started reading them. They are very action packed, funny, interesting and also very emotional.
I think they are funny because they all talk about different subjects that I, and most other readers, find interesting and/or funny. Emotional parts would be in books two to six. There are some parts that would make you cry and some angry and happy parts.
The fact that my friend Gabriela was talking non stop about the series, and that they are about fairy tales made me start to think about reading them. They also seemed interesting by the descriptions on the backs. My favorite part would have to be when the characters made friends with some new Everafters in all the books I have read.
Here is a quick video about this cool book series:

Here at Our Big Earth we have a strict policy about how we handle book reviews. We only review books we’ve enjoyed and, while publishers do send us books free of charge we always give away that copy of the book when it is reviewed. If a book is not reviewed, it is returned to the publisher. When publishers specifically request that we not return un-reviewed books, we use them as giveaways at community events. If a book is reviewed, a publisher, author or advertiser has no editorial control over the review. They see the review for the first time when you do.
Advertisers, publishers and authors cannot pay to have their books reviewed and you’ll never see a link, product or business mention in a post that has been purchased by that business.
