Once Upon A Crime

Once Upon a Crime is the fourth installment in the Sisters Grimm series. Buckley has not lost his talent in combining fairy tale and classic literature characters into an amusing mystery tale. My long held suspicions about the character of Oz have been fulfilled in Buckley's imaginative tale. The story moves outside of Ferryport Landing and arrives in New York City to bring Puck back to his family to get help in healing him. Along the journey, they encounter Sinbad the Sailor and a very interesting take on Scrooge and Tiny Tim. Not quite the character you remember from the Christmas Carol.

Thanks to the library reservation service I already have Magic and Other Misdemeanors ready to begin. This is a great series for teachers or parents who want to provide children with examples of using characters in different settings.
