Bored on a hot afternoon, Alice follows a White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and tumbles into Wonderland: a topsy-turvy world of riddles and nonsense where animals answer back, a baby turns into a pig, time stands still at a disorderly tea party, croquet is played with hedgehogs and flamingos, and the Mock Turtle and Gryphon dance the Lobster Quadrille.

Nancy Drew meets Shrek in this funny, exciting new series of mysteries set in a community of fairy-tale characters. In the second book, The Sisters Grimm (Book Two): The Unusual Suspects , girl detectives Sabrina and Daphne Grimm start school at Ferryport Landing Elementary. If there is one thing they’ve learned since they moved in with Granny Grimm, it’s that having fairy-tale characters as neighbors means facing the unexpected. And sure enough, their new school is full of surprises. Daphne’s lucky enough to get Snow White for a teacher-she’s so good with little people-but poor Sabrina’s stuck in Mr. Grumpner’s class, where the students are either sleepy or psychotic and her teacher is teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Is this just typical sixth-grade suffering or is there something seriously wrong at the school? When Mr. Grumpner is found dangling from the classroom ceiling in a spider web, even sunny Daphne is convinced that Ferryport Landing Elementary has a monster problem. Can the Sisters Grimm solve the crime?
The Sisters Grimm are a welcome addition to the ranks of literary girl sleuths, and their adventures are sure to enchant.
