6 hours 13 minutes
Enter a world of fractured fairy tales and magical mysteries in this first installment of the beloved New York Times bestselling Sisters Grimm series.

Orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their newly discovered grandmother, Relda Grimm, in the strange town of Ferryport Landing. The girls soon learn a family secret: that they are descendants of the famous Brothers Grimm, whose book of fairy tales is actually a history book and whose characters are still alive in Ferryport, New York.

When a terrorizing giant goes on a rampage through the town, it’s up to the Sisters Grimm to stop him and to solve the mystery of who set the giant loose in the first place. Was it corrupt Mayor Charming, formerly Prince Charming, who desperately wants his kingdom back? The Three Not-So-Little Pigs, the shifty town cops? Or Snow White or Jack the Giant Killer or one of the many other fairy-tale characters who seem to have it out for the young sisters Grimms?

“A world in which humans and fairy-tale creatures live side-by-side. … Madcap adventure.”—School Library Journal

I first listened to this book with my children several years ago. We ended up purchasing the entire book series and even my non readers looked forward to reading these books. Now I am sharing them with my niece and nephew- both non-readers and they too, are equally enthralled. My kids often wished they would make these into movies. I agree as long as the plot isn’t subverted Hollywood style.

A fun and thoroughly entertaining book. If you are looking for a light story to end the day with - this is it. Sometimes it’s nice to listen to a good story.

Reminiscent of Into The Woods, but not as funny and no music. Story was amusing and narrator was okay.
