Multiple award-winning author Michael Buckley's New York Times best-selling Sisters Grimm series is phenomenally popular. In their fourth adventure, Sabrina, Daphne, Granny Relda, and Puck hit the streets of New York City to search for Puck's family. They quickly get wrapped up in a murder investigation, however, when a maniacal Everafter is discovered to be on the loose.
My then 12 year old just adored this series. He devoured it and would stay up late at night listening. I would highly recommend this series for anyone in his age range. Especially if the child likes updated versions of fairy tales.

This story was funny and funnier!! The realistic and dramatic voice was wonderful as well. I'm fascinated with THE SISTERS GRIMM. I have read 5 books of the series so far. Not one book of them let me down! Especially #4 is my favorite.

My daughter LOVED this series and this book in particular. This is a great light listen, and extremely appropriate for children under 10, especially girls. I thought this book was extremely well written and the story was very enjoyable. My daughter would give it 5 stars across the board, I gave it 4 because I like to save the 5 stars for books that I (that is ME) can't put down. If I could I would probably give this book 4.5 stars...the only thing that keeps this from 5 stars is because it is very much so a children's book and thus was just a bit predictable for an adult. That said, the main characters of this book are strong, relatable female characters that I liked my daughter to listen to. I felt that they showed her how young girls could be strong and demonstrated how sisters should look out for each other. I highly recommend this novel for people with young girls and who want to listen to something together. I also recommend it to anybody with children (of any sort), or for adults who enjoy books with the light atmosphere of "young adult/children" stories like atmosphere of the early books of Harry Potter or the Septimus Heap books. Now that I have said that I should clarify that this book only compares to HP and SP in the style/tone of the story...the plot and everything else are NOTHING like HP and SP. I would describe the The Sisters Grimm as a "fairy tale/fantasy realism/mystery/detective children???s novel. NOT "swords and magic fantasy". But the at

I love these books but each book ends with a cliff-hanger! So far the events make us laugh and we have been having a great time. The silly comments from the girls like Freakazoid, Punk Rock and more. Just plain fun!

My 9 year old loved it she loved the whole series it's in amazing book and series
I have listened to this series over and over again for years. It is perfect for listening at work. The narrator is awesome. He is able to have distinct voices during conversations between Granny Relda, her two granddaughters and various fairy tale characters.
Puck has always been my favorite character and inn this book you get to see a different side of him.
Funny The Fairytale this ones basically A night's summer dream this series has fairy tale characters
Another great addition to the Grimm sisters series. It made my daughter laugh out loud!

I have always liked reading the sisters Grimm by myself and I thought that it would be nice to see how other people do the characters voices.
The voices were very much different then I imagined but, I liked them. I can't wait until I am sick again. (Hahaha. Not really. 😜😤🤒 My mom only byes them for me to listen to when I am sick.) I love the sisters Grimm stories.
I love these books so much I can stop reading or listening to them if you like fantasy books you'll like this series
