    When I originally started the sisters Grimm series, it was because a friend had recommended them to me.I thought, ok, so I ordered the first four books from my library, and started to read them.In book one, it took me quite awhile to get into the book, I just wasn't feeling it at all! My friend had said they were amazing! but, nothing really amazed me at first.When I got to the middle of the book, something clicked, and I couldn't put the book do...

    I mainly like this book because by now, I have invested so much in the individual characters that I like to hear what happens next, no matter how poorly delivered. I enjoyed the twist on the Little Red Riding Hood tale, which includes the origins of the Big Bad Wolf. And I love the quirky little comments from Puck.However, Buckley is choosing to make each successive novel more and more episodic - feeling more like the next half an hour of a telev...

    In book 6 of the Sisters Grimm books the psychotic Little Red Riding Hood (Red) is back, hence the play on words of the title. In Buckley's great world where fairytale characters are real people known as Everafters there is a town called Ferryport Landing. The Grimm family, last descendants of the fairy tale collectors Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, are under attack from the meglomania Mayor the Queen of Hearts and her malignant sidekick the Sheriff of...

    Another excellent book in an excellent series. While this book didn't really help us learn much more about The Scarlet Hand, the revelations about how The Big Bad Wolf came to be were really great. And the ending . . . Will Dad finally wake up when Goldie kisses him?

    The most redeeming thing in this book is the twist on the Red Riding Hood story.

    The sixth entry into the Sisters Grimm series feels less like a standalone novel and more an excerpt from a larger book (even more so than Magic and Other Misdemeanors). This series is starting to feel more and more like a chain of barely connected adventures, almost like a ’90s sitcom, where the world mostly resets at the end of every episode. Even the end, which featured another cliffhanger, felt like ‘eh’ because, well, that’s all the ...

    The sisters have to crack a centuries' old case in order to save a friend's life. Mad Hatters and merry men. Reluctant witnesses and rampant rosebushes. Growing pains and Goldilocks. I appreciate the complexity and character growth in this series. Sabrina isn't always right and she isn't always wrong, and her flaws are very much in keeping with a girl her age. I was proud of Puck for calling her out (privately, politely, but pointedly).

    I think it's sad how Mr. Canis has the wolf inside of him. And he starts to lose control of the wolf and starts becoming more and more like the wolf, but they find out how to take the wolf outside of him. They are really surprised about this because the wolf can come out of him with a kazoo. but it works.

    Well, this one was the usual disappointment, while not as much as the first three unuseful installments - ludicrous, superficial, flat, absurd, plotholey, demented, stupid... - until that last page, which made me rethink about my by now definitely dead hopes for this series (or at least once more the ending of this books makes me interested in the next one). A delightful conclusion and a fantastic way to be awaken in the middle of the night (one ...

    Once again I am using the Sisters Grimm as a palate cleanser between heavier reading and they come through for me again. This one didn't move the storyline along as much as I had hoped, but it gave me enough answers to want to keep reading the series.

    This is a great book. The whole Little Red Riding Hood idea is really good. Once again, Michael Buckley has turned fairytales upside down!!BUT, I must say a few things. 1. WHERE IS THE ROMANCE??? I am not a huge romance fan, haven't read the Twilight books or anything, but I feel Sabrina and Puck should like each other more. They did kiss, but when they were handcuffed together and Puck told her she was pretty, I wished Sabrina had said, "Thank y...

    Yes! This book series is really good, ( right up there with harry Potter and the Hunger Games ) but I don't know why everyone is complaining about Sabrina. We NEVER see a character like her, people! She's sarcastic, lies, steals, but always to protect someone, no matter how wrong it goes. She may make all of us want to strangle her, and I know nobody will agree with me, but to me, that's a mark of good writing. Daphne, though, she's a sweet littl...

    "he needs us to rescue him. we are grimms. this is what we do" 3.5 stars. This was probably my second least favorite in the series. There was so much ANGST and miscommunication. Sabrina and Daphne spent so much of the book either ignoring each other or arguing for no reason. Sabrina was so angry for the whole book and it makes sense because she's starting to go through puberty but her whole family treats her as if she's a villain because she's ...

    In this book Mr. Cannes is being tried for being the Big Bad Wolf. The Grimms don't know what to do. They interview Little Red Riding Hood and the wood cutter. The Wood Cutter actually gives them a look into what happened the day the wolf ate granny. Without letting you know what actually happens some questions are answered. Unfortunately, other questions come forward to be answered. The book ends in a cliff hanger so you need to read the next bo...

    This book Tales from the hood by Michael Buckley tells the story will be a classic one. I thought the characters in the were indepent. they alway tried to help even if they couldn't. My favorite character in this book was puck. Puck was my favorite because he was funny and had a good personality. The biggest problem the characters faced was when they fought a man he was really dangerous therefore really big problem. Overall, I thought this book w...

    LOVED LOVED LOVED.This series can do no wrong. I am forever in love with Puck, and forever wishing I could be best friends with Sabrina and Daphne. Even though this is a middle-grade series, I am reading it to my mother, and she is so invested and engaged, hanging on every masterful cliff hanger. This is my 5th time rereading these books and each time it's like reading them anew. SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS SERIES.

    And. . . Sabrina's right back where she started. That girl frustrates me to no end. She acts like she sees the light and is going to change, only to turn and go right back to where she was. I know that might be realistic, but characters need to change, Mr. Buckley.Also, not a lot happened in this book. They were trying to save Mr. Canis from hanging and that's about it. I would have enjoyed more action. Still, I want to finish the series since I'...

    3 StarsI’ve given all the previous books in this series four stars but that’s a probably bit misleading. Although I have really enjoy them that is despite a lot of issues present throughout the series – but that came to a bit of a head for me in this book. The overarching plot is very drawn out with some of the books (2, 4, and 6 so far) failing to do anything much to advance it, Sabrina’s character development keeps going two step forwar...

    I have a weird relationship with this series. Each time I get one of the books, I practically have to force myself to read it. And I get really annoyed with Sabrina and how she constantly underestimates everyone and thinks she has to do everything on her own. But other parts of the story keep dragging me back to read "just one more book". I guess I'll keep going for now.

    I really liked getting to learn more about Mr. Canis' background, and seeing Sabrina changing, even if she's still struggling. Still feeling iffy about Daphne, though, but I have high hopes for the next book.

    If you want an entertaining but exciting book to read, here they are. I am having so much fun reading the adventures of these Grimm Sisters that I can't put them down. Read this series, you won't regret it.

    I like the Sisters Grimm because it is a lot of genres. In this book it is about little red riding hood. Sabrina and Daphne Grimm and their family are hot on the case of the big bad wolf also known as their friend Mr.Cansas. So you need to know what happened before. Their friend was not really the big bad wolf before,but he lost control when fighting Jack the giant killer. They soon found out that it was the spirit of a wolf that turned Mr.Canasa...
