Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
In paperback for the first time, the Sisters Grimm take readers to a world where fairy tales are fact and not everyone is who they seem!

Ali Baba's carpet isn't going to get us into Charming's mansion. We need the slippers," Jack argued. "Mrs. Grimm would not approve. The slippers were entrusted to this family so they would never fall into the wrong hands," Mirror replied. "You can trust me," said Jack. "Didn't you used to have your own magic

"If you have any further concerns I want you to know that my door is always open . . . between the hours of eight and eight fifteen every morning. Please call for an appointment. For now, let's dance, drink, be merry, and most of all, be ourselves, free of the disguises we all wear to fit into this pathetic, boring little town. The night is young, and by the grace of

"Child, your mother and father didn't abandon you," Mrs. Grimm cried. "Mrs. Grimm, I —" Daphne began. "Liebling, I'm not Mrs. Grimm. I'm your grandmother," the old woman said.
