This is the first book of a fantastic series by Buckley. Daphne and Sabrina Grimm are descendents of the Brothers Grimm, scribes of Grimms Fairytales. When they go to visit their grandmother, they learn about the strange adventures meant for Grimms as they encounter Everafters, or Fairytale creatures. This is a great book to discuss genre and how genres intersect, and has kept my students on the hook. DRA 40 Guided Reading Level R
