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!

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. He said that while it was a well written, exciting series, it contained many dark images and themes that might not be appropriate for younger kids. I will wait until my younger son is a bit older before he reads it. My 12 yr old LOVED the series....

This 9 volume set was a gift for our 11 year old grandson. He is an avid reader but wasn't sure about a series about the "Sisters" Grimm..hahaha. Since we had already bought him the first 3 volumes, he agreed to at least read the first book.. He called 3 days later to let us know he was so sad to have finished the first 3 books and hoped that "Mimi and Papa would send (him) the rest"? Once he received the remaining 6 books it only took him 7 days to read them all!! Highly recommended for your special reader.

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've read all of the Sisters Grimm books so far, and I have loved every single one of them! This one was brilliant-as per usual. It was hard to wait a year for this book to come out, but when I finally got my copy-I was really brought back to life. Even though Briar Rose wasn't, my love of reading and fairy-tales has! Puck was so funny in this book. His jokes about Sabrina and his wedding made me laugh out loud. Daphne was so darn cute as usual, and Sabrina very leader-ish. Ooh! Now I'm making up words like Daphne, ha. Overall-awesome book!
