The story is about two sisters Sabrina age eleven and Daphne age seven who have been orphaned after their parents vanished. After being placed unsuccessfully in numerous foster homes they are finally placed with a woman who claims to be their grandmother, Relda. The sisters were raised being told that their grandmother was dead, so while Daphne is just relieved to be in a better home than the last, Sabrina is very skeptical of the woman and her claims of being their grandmother. To add to the skepticism Granny Relda informs the girls that they are ancestors of the famous Brothers Grimm and that the town they will be living in, Ferryport, is filled with “Ever-Afters” (A.K.A. fairy tale characters). Sabrina thinks granny is down right crazy until she and her sister have an encounter with an actual giant, proving granny is telling the truth after all!! The story only gets better from there as these two sisters begin an adventure filled with magic and fantasy as they must rescue their newly met granny and her good friend Mr. Canis from the giant. The girls begin their rescue mission in a town filled with “Ever-Afters” as they try to figure out who is trustworthy to help them on their journey and who is not.
You will no doubt be satisfied with the story line and the cast that includes some classic fairy tale characters such as Jack, from Jack and the Beanstalk, Prince Charming and The Three Little Pigs. This book is very affordable you can pick up a copy of it online for around $8. To make the book even better it has a very interesting plot twist and the bad guy may not be so “bad” after all!! This book is very easy to read and you will enjoy the adventure and fantasy elements of this must-read book that is satisfying for readers of all ages.
We are definitely looking forward to reading more books in the series.
