The Problem Child (The Sisters Grimm #3) : 10th Anniversary Edition Paperback / softback
Illustrated by Peter Ferguson
Part of the Sisters Grimm, The series
Fans of fractured fairy tales will be delighted to discover the fantasy, mystery, adventure and humour in the New York Times bestselling Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley, now with new cover art.
The nine wildly popular books are favourites around the world: they were among the first books to bring a distinctly girl-power spin to fairy tales - a spin taken up by hit movies and shows TV such as Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Maleficent, the bestselling book series The Land of Stories, and other.
New covers will appear on book one, The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy-Tale Detectives; book two, The Sisters Grimm: The Unusual Suspects; and book three, The Sisters Grimm: The Problem Child.
Books four through nine will be available in revised editions soon. This third book in the series takes a dark twist, as Sabrina and Daphne get closer to uncovering the truth about their parents.
Coming face-to-face with their parents' kidnappers, the sisters are stunned when one of them turns out to be the world's most famous fairy-tale character (hint: she wears red) and the other an unstoppable killing-machine known as the Jabberwocky.
Without the presumed-dead Mr. Canis (aka The Big Bad Wolf) fighting at their side, the girls have little hope that they'll ever be reunited with their mother and father.
That is until their long-lost Uncle Jake returns home with stories of a weapon that can kill the Jabberwocky - a weapon so powerful that it had to be shattered into many pieces.
Now the girls must find the pieces so the deadly weapon can be reformed.
But to get the deed done they'll have to go head-to-head with the Wizard of Oz, the (not so) Little Mermaid, and even the horrible witch Baba Yaga.
To complicate matters, Sabrina begins to struggle with an addiction to magic and finds herself unraveling a real-life family mystery. With an irresistible combination of adventure and imagination, the Sisters Grimm series injects classic fairy tales with modern day sensibilities and suspense, creating a fantastical combination readers of all ages will love.
