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 love this book series, and this guide adds even more enjoyment to the story. While it is a book series written for children, I admit I am an adult and I still find it very entertaining. I would recommended reading the first 9 books before reading A Very Grimm Guide because there are some details talked about in the guide that will spoil the books for you. I made the mistake of reading this guide before the 9th book and ruined the ending for myself.

So, you're a devoted Sisters Grimm fan who's just found out about this book and is wondering whether or not you should care. Let's start things off with a little Q&A section:

Question: Should I read it?
Answer: YES.
Question: Should I spend money on it?
Answer: You should spend 25 cents on it.
Question: Should I expect great things from it?
Answer: No.

A Very Grimm Guide is a cute little book, about half as thick as the main SG books, except for The Inside Story which was positively anorexic. The pages are pretty and glossy, and in my opinion extremely well-designed. I love love love the various "items" from Ferryport Landing in it. Michael Buckley certainly got very creative with everything, and half the time I couldn't stop laughing for the geniusness of the various ads and papers. I think my absolute favorite would be Bluebeard's online dating profile, packed with more shades of pink than I've ever seen outside of a six-year-old girl's closet. (Sadly, the web adress is edited out. Ladies, we'll just have to hope we run into him in real life.) Second to that in awesometasticness is the flyer for Snow White's Bad Apples class. Really, every single one of these "authentic" things was packed with amazing jokes that only an SG reader would ever get. Next time I go to Ferryport Landing, I'll stop in at Old King Cole's just to get that edible bowl free with the kid's meal (edible taste not guaranteed).

But I know that's not what you guys care about. Let's face it, the one and only reason we're even a little bit interested in this book is because of Puck's endlessly helpful annotations (and because he's personally rubbed his behind on every single page, but let's try not to faint with pleasure).

This is a great supplement to a wonderful series! My 5th grade students LOVE this series. It has created avid readers from students who traditionally did not like reading. This guide is brilliantly written and presents great multigenre writing ideas to create a true balanced-literacy reading unit.

I liked this book but it didn't really show how to be a Grimm. I think they should make a movie about the series and not skip HUGE parts!

I agree with the five stars because this is so funny.I'm also glad I got the kindle edition because Puck rubbed his butt on it.I do not like that it was short .I did like Luke's "editing" marks. I do not like the price but as I said this is one funny guide.

Sister Grimm fans do not read this before other books because it reveals th Master of Scarlet Hand.
I made a BIG mistake and read it before
