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 confess. I am well in to my thirties and had read all of the Grimm books before I thought to share them with nine year old son. Sharing them with him has been like sharing my best, most delightful secret. Every night it pains him to put the book down because he can not wait to see what happens next. And what is better than the sound of a child's laughter? Surely something you will hear often while reading this book.

Buckley does a fantastic job at blending fantasy (these are fairy tale characters, afterall) and reality (who have lives in the 21st century). His Grimm series is full of adventure, emotion, and laugh out loud wit (whether you are 9 or closer to 39). Book 5 feels very different from the others. Maybe it is because we have become invested in these characters. Maybe it is because of the plot elements Buckley introduces to this book. Time travel is nothing new to writing, but it certainly adds a spark to this book and really feels right at this point in the series (so glad it didn't happen earlier). And though Buckley always leaves us hanging at the end of each book, the ending to this one has got to be the best (one of many OMG moments in the book) and should be accompanied by some "duhn, duhn, DUHHHHHHH music in the background.

I have only two questions after reading Magic and Other Misdemeanors- 1) when is book 7 coming out??? and 2) who is the master of the Scarlet Hand?!?! Ideas anyone?

If you enjoyed the first four Sisters Grimm books, you will love this one. The fifth book has some unexpected plot twists that will keep you reading. The story is "darker" than the first four but not so scary kids wouldn't enjoy it. My daughter and I read it together and now can't wait for the sixth Sisters Grimm book to come out.

MINOR SPOILER ALERT

Whoa, This book is weird. I don't really like time travel stuff that much; it messes with my brain. But this book was still a great book and very funny, and the ending:
Oh that ending!
I was jumping up and down demanding we go to the library and pick up book 6. My dad reads them too (after I read them), and I told him that Charming did something drastic in the end. He reads the book and he says:
"I thought you said he was going to do something drastic."
And I say: "That wasn't drastic enough for you?"
Him: "No. We all knew he was gonna do THAT. I thought he was gonna, like, kill Canis or something."

I looked at him like he grew another head.

So, enough of that, the book is awesome, and you should totally read it.
