Reading Journal Entry: The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives, by Michael Buckley

Another advance reading copy I picked up at the BEA and tossed back over the past couple nights. The gimmick: two orphaned girls find out they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, and that they have magical duties in a small New York town staffed with former inhabitants of fairyland. Hijinx ensue.

It's a pretty good schtick, and given the success of similar fantasy series, this should do well. However, it's not nearly as enjoyable for adults as the outstanding Harry Potter or Lemony Snicket books.
