Booklist Review

The fifth installment of The Sisters Grimm series finds young detectives Sabrina and Daphne in search of three magical objects that have been stolen from their Everafter owners. While in pursuit, they are transported to the future, where they meet older versions of themselves and missing Prince Charming. Together, the characters devise a plan to redo their work to investigate an evil organization, the Scarlet Hand. Fast-paced adventure, sly humor, and frequent cameo appearances by storybook greats make this an appealing choice for fairy-tale fans.--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2008 Booklist

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-The Sisters Grimm are back in a fifth installment (Amulet Books, 2007) of Michael Buckley's popular series. This time, amateur detective sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm investigate the theft of several magical objects which were stolen from the homes of the Ever Afters, Ferryport Landing's immortal fairy tale inhabitants. While Granny Relda struggles to find the money to cover inordinate taxes on her home and propertyÄimposed on all humans living in Ferryport Landing to force them to move out of the townÄthe sisters struggle to solve the mystery of the missing items. Their fairy foster brother Puck, Mr. Canis (a man slowly transforming into the Big Bad Wolf), Prince Charming, Snow White, and others help the children through their investigation and the consequent "time tears" that result from the misuse of the magical objects. All the while, the children strive to find a remedy for the endless sleep that has befallen their unfortunate parents. L.J. Ganser's narration is well-paced, but with occasionally faltering voicings for each of the characters. An entertaining, action-packed listen for fans of mysteries and fairy tales.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Galaxie Branch, Apple Valley, MN (c) Copyright 2010.
