I will FOREVER love the Sisters Grimm series, and I TOTALLY suggest it to older kids RIGHT NOW!!!!!! There is magic in it (witches, fairies, curses, spells,wands, and mirrors), violence (giants, evil spider people, Big-Bad-Wolf’s, and lots of mysterious deaths), and adventure (LOTS of adventure).

The book is about these sisters who are the great-something granddaughters of the Grimm-brothers. They live in a magical town with all of the fairytale citizens. (Including the villains and monsters).

The book is AWESOME. And the series is just as cool!!!! It is very clean, and kid-friendly (But probably 8-12 kid-friendly) but there is magic in it. So, if your not ok with all sorts of magical stuff that might blow up, breath fire, and eat people…this might not be the book for you. 🙂

Over all, I LOVE this book and definitely suggest it to older kids and teens.  I hope you all have a ‘Magical’ book-filled day!-The Young Llama Reader.


  • A VERY clean, magical adventure!!!!
  • Awesome series for EVERYONE!!!!!!!


  • LOTS of magic
  • Violence, mystery, and murder

For Sabrina Grimm, living in a community of fairy-tale characters means always being ready for trouble. And something is definitely wrong at her new school. The adults seem too angry, the kids seem too mean, and the gym teacher likes dodgeball way too much. Of course, her little sister, Daphne, is having the time of her life. (Who wouldn’t, with Snow White for a teacher—she’s great with little people!) But when Sabrina’s teacher, Mr. Grumpner, is found dead, dangling in a giant spiderweb, even Daphne’s convinced that Ferryport Landing Elementary has a monster problem. Can the Sisters Grimm get to the bottom of this sticky situation?
