The Sisters Grimm : Book Eight : The Inside Story

The Sisters Grimm : Book Eight : 
The Inside Story
by Michael Buckley

Book Eight continues the plight of Sabrina, Daphne, and the rest of the Grimm family.  Now they are traveling through the magical book that contains every fairy tale ever written.  As they travel, they become characters in each story and must follow the story in order to get closer to Mirror and Pinocchio, who have kidnapped their brother in order to give Mirror a vessel to become mortal and leave his magical prison.

Of course, Sabrina, Daphne, and Sabrina's fiance, Puck (even though she's only 12, he's planning their eventual wedding), never do things the right way.  They cut through stories, making a mess of the worlds they travel through and confusing all of the characters left behind.  Now they not only have to get through the stories, they also have to stay a step ahead of the Editor, a creation whose entire purpose is to keep all stories on the correct path and on script. And hidden in the margins of the book is a terrible creature waiting to destroy anyone who goes too far away from the story.

So now they must argue with fairy tale characters, run from the Editor, keep away from the margins, try to catch a kidnapper, and get their nameless brother back.

What else can go wrong?

Final thoughts:  I love this series and this book was no exception, but I started reading this thinking it would be the last one.  Now I have to wait for the next, and I hate waiting, especially for another book in The Sisters Grimm series.  Every book is great, though it's very important to read them in order.

Rating: 5/5
