L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series “Why didn’t I think of The Sisters Grimm? What a great concept!” —Jane Yolen, award-winning author “Terrific, head-spinning series . . . Rich in well-set-up surprises and imaginatively tweaked characters, this tongue-in-cheek frolic features both a pair of memorable young sleuths and a madcap plot with plenty of leads into future episodes.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review “Enormously entertaining, the book takes the fractured fairy-tale genre to new heights.” —Time Out New York Kids “An idea that will make other children’s book writers, and tons of aspiring ones, kick themselves for not thinking of it first.” —The San Antonio Express-News “A page-turner that incorporates humor, tension, suspense and a wild cast of characters, readers will have trouble putting this novel down.” —The Dallas Morning News “Quirky and reasonable characters, engaging writing, fresh fairy tale references, and a very real fantasy setting.” —The Raleigh News and Observer, “Most Promising New Series” “The twists and turns of the plot, the clever humor, and the behind-the-scenes glimpses of Everafters we think we know, will appeal to many readers.” —Kliatt, starred review

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.
