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?

The book ends on a cliffhanger that left me anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.

Book 6 is another quick and exciting read in the Sisters Grimm story. It would also seem that it might be a pivotal edition: the girls are growing up, old characters leave, new characters enter, and the Scarlet Hand has taken over Ferryport Landing. As good as this book was (and it didn't disappoint for a moment), I'm more eager to see what the next couple of books will mean for the girls.

For everyone looking for a good book to read...THIS is it! from the first to the 6th so far every word has kept my attention. the adventure, drama, and even comedy are something children and adults can enjoy. I am 15 years old and still read these. I read clips to my mother and she is rolling laughing by the time I finish.

They are simple reads with easy language yet filled with exciting events that will keep you wanting more!!

I hear the 7th book isn't coming out until Fall 2009. A bit a wait yes, but SOO worth it!!

Can't wait!!

P.S. suggested series' "Septimus Heap", "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and "A Series of Unfortunate Event". Check em out!!

I really enjoyed this book! From the first page to the last I was sitting on the edge of my seat! Sabrina is growing up, painfully but surely. I completely understand what she's going through! And Puck is well, maturing! <gasp> Daphne is growing up too, I don't know about you but I miss the happy-go-lucky little girl I've come to love. Unfortunately, she has to grow up too... The last page left me hanging, already I'm dying to know what happens next!! A perfect read for anyone who loves mystery and fairy tales!

Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are coming to new stages in their lives. Sabrina, against her tomboy nature, is becoming more interested in makeup, trying to look prettier. Daphne is imitating her, because Sabrina is her role model, and yet Sabrina is annoyed by her sister's new antics. However, the girls do not have time to ponder their new ways in life: they have a new case to concentrate on.
The family wants a trial to be held for Mr.Canis in order to prove him innocent in the crimes against Little Red Riding Hood and her grandma. That is, if anyone would work with them. Mr.Canis is resistant to their assistance, and Mayor Heart and Nottingham won't let the Sherwood Associates (i.e. Robin Hood and Little John) get a word in for their client. Adding to the Grimm family troubles is finding Goldilocks so she can wake up the girls' parents. With help of a traveling chest, Uncle Jake and the girls travel to help her escape from a Scarlet Hand member, yet are denied her help.
This book is hilarious, as all the others all. I'm probably considered too old to read these books yet I find them all delightful. Everything is funny and witty, with a great spin on traditional fairy tale characters.
One touch to this book that I find particulary endearing is how Puck attached himself to Sabrina. The more we see him, the more I like him, especially because he helps Sabrina and actually has morals now. I cannot wait to see similar action in the upcoming books.
All in all, this book does everything it should. The Mr.Canis story is finally revealed, and with a does of laughter, this fast read will keep you in your seat.

Despite their many problems (including the fact that their parents are under a sleeping spell) Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are growing up. Sabrina, despite herself, is becoming a girly girl and Daphne is starting to imitate Sabrina. In a way, this is a welcome diversion for the girls as their grandmother's best friend, Mr. Canis, is on trial for crimes he committed while he was the Big Bad Wolf. The Grimms have very good reasons to fear Mr. Canis will not have a fair trial, but do everything they can to help him, including trying to find out what really happened to Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother. What they discover will surprise all of them - even Mr. Canis.

"Tales from the Hood" is the wickedly funny sixth book in Michael Buckley's The Sisters Grimm fantasy series. The series is set in Ferryport Landing where fairy tale and other fantasy characters such as the Queen of Hearts, Robin Hood, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and others live. Buckley has a lot of fun turning the fairy tale world inside out for better or for worse (especially the Wizard of Oz series - he does a number on the Scarecrow in this book) and creates a world in which the Queen of Hearts is mayor and the Sheriff of Nottingham is, well the Sheriff. All of the regular characters in the series are maturing as the series goes along, especially Sabrina and Daphne and Mr. Canis - whose back-story is finally reviewed in the book and it is a good one. While the book is aimed at children, readers of all ages will enjoy it - adults will love the way Buckley skews the fairytale and fantasy characters. And without revealing too much, the courtroom scenes are some of the funniest scenes in that setting I've ever read - Buckley's choice of judge is inspired. The book ends on a cliffhanger that left me anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.

"Tales from the Hood" is a great entry in a wonderful fantasy series.

I discovered this series by accident looking through Amazon's recommendations, and it is excellent. Very entertaining, cleverly written and very exciting. Can't wait to read the next book in the series...
