The Grimms defend Mr. Canis in Ferryport Landing's trial of the century!

This book sees Mr. Canis, dear friend and protector of the Grimm family, put on trial for past crimes. Considering that he's really the Big Bad Wolf, he has a lot to answer for. Is there any truth to the story told by Little Red Riding Hood? What's the deal with all that huffing and puffing? Will Mr. Canis be forced to answer for his crimes?

A kangaroo court of Everafters, led by the cruel Queen of Hearts, is determined to find Canis guilty and force the Grimms out of Ferryport Landing. Meanwhile, Puck has decided to focus more on his mischievous ways, making a few new troublemaker friends. So it's up to Sabrina and Daphne to find evidence to save Canis--and their investigation may reveal more than they hoped.

Readers have embraced the first five books in the series, and this gripping courtroom drama won't disappoint.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Humans are being forced out of Fairyport Landing by the new mayor, the Queen of Hearts, and her right hand man, the Sheriff of Nottingham. The only humans left are the Grimm family (descendants of the Brothers Grimm), and now their protector, Mr. Canis (the Big Bad Wolf), is in jail for past crimes. While the family and their lawyers (Sherwood Associates) attempt to clear him, Canis is slowly losing hold of his human side and is slipping more and more into the character of the Big Bad Wolf. Will the kangaroo court convict Mr. Canis? What really happened to Red Riding Hood? Should Mr. Canis be saved? Michael Buckley's fast-paced tale (Amulet Books, 2008) features twists, turns, and side plots that will intrigue listeners. L.J. Ganser's narration is dramatic and he provides different voices and accents for the characters. A great addition to the series and a must-have for fans of the previous titles.-Laura Davies, Kenton County Public Library, KY (c) Copyright 2010.
