More About the Author

After a tragic accident I was bombarded with gamma radiation. Days later, I awoke to discover I had changed. Now when I am angered I transform into an enormous, green monster people have come to call "The Hulk." I faked my own death and I'll stay dead until I can learn to control the savage monster inside me. Wait a minute - that's the bio for Bruce Banner! No, I grew up in Akron, Ohio -- nowhere near any lab where gamma radiation research was going on. When I was a kid I was a roller boogie fanatic but that hardly makes me a monster...even if people were injured a few times when I would "shoot the duck." No, the closest thing I have to a monster inside me are my Incredible Hulk underoos! Does that count?

I had initially purchased this series for my 10 yr old, but my 12 yr old ran out of books to read so he read the series.

I can't even begin to describe how phenomenal this book was. Puck and Sabrina are freaking adorable AND still hilarious. The book's 'romance' side was a lot stronger than in the previous ones (where it was building up tortuously slowly) though not overdone, and still very child-appropriate. Sabrina and Puck are definitely on my all-time favorite book couples list.

Anyway.
On to my very long-winded gushing of the book's awesomeness.

The book starts with the girls having been transported to the Book of Everafter, and basically they run around from story to story, chasing Pinocchio. I wouldn't say they were chasing Mirror, because they don't really catch up to him for a long time. Pinocchio, on the other hand, is around a lot.
Trixie Grimm, another Grimm ancestor, is mentioned for the first time. I would say more, but I don't want to spoil the story line.

In Michael Buckley's typical style, he blends a lot of humor into it (I appreciated Daphne coming up with a new name for the baby every time you turn around--I was a fan of 'Oohg' and 'Carmine' especially). As I said, Puck and Sabrina are hilarious (He's started teasing her endlessly about the wedding plans, and her reactions are pretty epic at moments) and of course the rest of the family is as Grimm-tastic as usual. (See how I incorporated some Daphne-ish into my review? Mad skills!)
The adventure was naturally fairy-tale infused, and while the excitement was lower than some other books (arguing with the Editor and avoiding revisers does not achieve the same level of sinister-ish-ness as battling the Scarlet Hand. Sorry, but it just doesn't) it was still pretty good. I read the book yesterday, and if it weren't for my immense homework load I would have already read it at least twice more.

I couldn't put it down the first time I was reading it! "The Inside Story" is a perfect fantasy novel for me: it has an intriguing plot with battles and mysteries and magic. Nevertheless it doesn't seem too scary: the humorous episodes make it bright and colorful.
I am very glad Sabrina finally impoves her character and learns how to deal with other people and respect them. In this book, the Sisters Grimm can be called a really good and friendly team.
"The Inside Story" is one of the most thrilling books ever!
(This is written by my 13-year-old daughter)

This is an excellent fantasy/adventure series for the young and the young at heart. Book eight has started to answer some of the questions that surfaces over the course to the story line. We are all waiting for the conclusion which should be in the next book. Two thumbs up!

My daughter and I have read this series together since book one. She is thirteen now, and we're still having fun with the adventures of the Grimm girls. We loved the travels through the different stories. Can't wait until the next one!

The hilarious hijinx of the Grimm family continue as Sabrina and Daphne, the two lovable Grimm sisters, embark on yet another daring mission. This time, they're in the mysterious Book of Everafter, chasing Mirror, leader of The Scarlet Hand. And they're about to discover that, even in a storybook, there's danger (and great pranking opportunities) around every corner... but they're the Sisters Grimm- what could happen? Humerous, fast-paced and sure to keep young readers on the edge of their seats.

I was really looking forward to reading the next book after the cliff hanger in book 7.
I was ready to read about Puck and Sabrina's blooming relationship, finding the baby brother and stopping the Scarlet hand. The journey through the storybook is not as exciting as i wanted to be, it was kinda of tedious going through the stories i already knew waiting to get mirror. The editor and his revisers were not a great threat to Puck and the Grimm Sisters, so it just seemed like another ingredient in a soup. The secret marriage between Puckabrina is now known, which makes it a little less thrilling, there is not much teasing and not enough one-on-one time between Puck and Sabrina as i expected.

SPOILERS AHEAD:
Sabrina, Puck and Daphne chase Mirror (head of the Scarlet Hand) and their baby brother into the storybook of everafters, where Pinocchio and Mirror try to change their story to get out of Ferryyport Landing and grow up to be a real man. As the Grimms and Puck travel through and change each Everafter story they are threatened by annoying characters that persist to sticking with the storyline, even if they are fated to death, so they won't be revised by the Editors and his man-eating revisers. Unfortunately, some characters of stories don't want to go back living the same way over, and over again, and offer help to capture Pinocchio and his puppets. Puck, the Grimms and Everafter characters catch mirror and rescue the baby; only minutes later revisers come to fix the changes made to the story where Sabrina must give Mirror back the baby in order to save their lifes. Sabrina becomes more sensitive knowing the danger she is putting everyone in and regrets most of her decisions which cause her to be unlike herself.
