Fans of fractured fairy tales will be delighted to discover the fantasy, mystery, adventure, and humor in the beloved New York Times bestselling Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley, now with new cover art. As featured on NBC's The Today Show, the nine wildly popular books are favorites around the world. They were among the first books to bring a distinctly girl-power spin to fairy tales-a spin taken up by hit movies and shows TV such as Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and Maleficent, the bestselling book series The Land of Stories, and other. New covers will appear on book one, The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy-Tale Detectives; book two, The Sisters Grimm: The Unusual Suspects; and book three, The Sisters Grimm: The Problem Child. Books four through nine will be available in revised editions soon. ? This third book in the series takes a dark twist, as Sabrina and Daphne get closer to uncovering the truth about their parents. Coming face-to-face with their parents' kidnappers, the sisters are stunned when one of them turns out to be the world's most famous fairy-tale character (hint: she wears red) and the other an unstoppable killing-machine known as the Jabberwocky. Without the presumed-dead Mr. Canis (aka The Big Bad Wolf) fighting at their side, the girls have little hope that they'll ever be reunited with their mother and father. That is until their long-lost Uncle Jake returns home with stories of a weapon that can kill the Jabberwocky-a weapon so powerful that it had to be shattered into many pieces. Now the girls must find the pieces so the deadly weapon can be reformed. But to get the deed done they'll have to go head-to-head with the Wizard of Oz, the (not so) Little Mermaid, and even the horrible witch Baba Yaga. To complicate matters, Sabrina begins to struggle with an addiction to magic and finds herself unraveling a real-life family mystery. With an irresistible combination of adventure and imagination, the Sisters Grimm series injects classic fairy tales with modern day sensibilities and suspense, creating a fantastical combination readers of all ages will love.

oh my god i love when they kiss, i read the page like, 20 times! :)

I like how this book deals with deeper subject matter like right and wrong/ addiction/ value of a person's life/ grief and loss in a roundabout way and how it shows how challenging decisions can be both from the grown ups point of view and from the two sister's points of view. Puck is brilliant in this novel and adds humour to an otherwise darker plot.

I have read all of the sisters grimm books multiple times. Yet, this is my favorite in the series.
There are many twists and turns that will suprise readers of all ages.

Picking up where The Unusual Suspects left off, Sabrina Grimm finds herself in a dark room with her unconscious kidnapped parents mere inches away. Unfortunately, she is also face-to-face with the dreaded Jabberwocky and its handler, the wickedly insane Little Red Riding Hood.

So begins the Sisters Grimm's third fairy-tale adventure. After a narrow escape, Sabrina and Daphne realize they are going to need help if they want to rescue their parents and defeat Red and her pet. Accompanied by their long-lost uncle Jake, the girls begin a quest to find the mystical vorpal blade. During their search for the only weapon capable of killing the Jabberwocky, they also meet more of Ferryport Landing's Everafters, including the Little Mermaid and the fearsome Baba Yaga.

I love all sisters grimm books, but the one I love most is The Problem Chlid because it's a very meaningful book. These brave girls, rescuing their parents. So adventuries! Also, I've seen how fast the sisters learn about Ferryprot Landing. At first, they didnt know that the place was magical. Withen a month, they've solved so many mysteries! I love this series!

A great story to get lost in. We are back with our favorite characters, Sabrina and Daphne. The moral of the story is that we protect and save family members at all costs. The characters feel real with their vulnerabilities and likable qualities.
