In this first book in the series, orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their recently discovered grandmother, Relda Grimm. The girls learn that they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous tome of fairy tales is actually a history book.
In this second book in the bestselling Sisters Grimm series, the sisters begin school at Ferryport Landing Elementary. Daphne gets Snow White for a teacher, but Sabrina is stuck with nasty Mr. Grumpner and a class of mildly psychotic sixth graders. When Mr. Grumpner is mysteriously murdered, Daphne and Sabrina must discover which Everafter is responsible.
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).
For the first time since their parents were kidnapped, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm return to their hometown, New York City, to find Puck’s family. But the fairy-tale detectives get more than they bargained for in the Big Apple: wand-wielding fairy godfathers, swashbuckling Wall Street pirates, subway-stealing dwarfs, and—worst of all—hidden among these urban Everafters, a murderer.
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm investigate a sudden streak of magical thefts that might add up to a very grim future for their family, who are not so popular in Ferryport Landing these days. With Granny Relda desperately scrambling to pay Mayor Heart’s outrageous taxes on humans, the sisters Grimm tackle their first solo case.
In Ferryport Landing, everyone gets their day in court—even the Big Bad Wolf. Mr. Canis is put on trial for past crimes, and Mayor Heart’s kangaroo court is sure to find him guilty. It’s up to the Grimms to uncover evidence to save their friend, though Sabrina stars to wonder whether they would all be safer with the Wolf in jail.
After two years trapped in enchanted sleep, Daphne and Sabrina’s parents are finally free. Unfortunately, they’ve awoken to chaos in Ferryport Landing. Prince Charming and his band of rebels are in hiding, plotting war against the Master and his henchmen.
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have studied hundreds of stories as part of their training as fairy-tale detectives, but they never thought they’d actually be in one. And yet that’s exactly what happens when they follow the diabolical Master into the Book of Everafter, a mysterious tome in which copies of the world’s fairy-tale characters live out their stories over and over again.
Grany Relda’s body has been hijacked by the Master, and it’s up to Sabrina, Daphne, and the rest of the Grimms to fight for her freedom and that of Ferryport Landing in the series’s grand finale. As war rips the town apart, Sabrina consults a team of magic mirrors, who prophesize that the only way the good guys will win is if she leads the army herself.
