It's not too late!


Have you ever waited for the next book of a series to be printed? Do your favorite authors leave you hanging for a year and you just want to find out what happens next?
The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley has me waiting on pins and needles to find out what will happen to the young orphans Sabrina and Daphne Grimm. Their life is NOT what fairy tales are made of. The cantankerous caseworker, Ms. Smirt has found their grandmother and is bringing them to Ferryport Landing. Granny Relda claims that they are the descendents of the Brother’s Grimm whose books are really a collection of case files from the magical world and they must now enter the family business of becoming detectives. Their first case is to stop a giant from destroying Ferryport Landing!
There is still time left this summer to get into a great series. Place a request for The Fairy-Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley today!
