Even though this is Book Five of The Sisters Grimm series, it's easy to sort out who is related to whom in the Grimm family. A wild plot is held together by the peppy narration of L.J. Ganser as he gives voice to the lengthy cast of characters, including Baba Yaga and the sneering Sheriff of Nottingham. This time the detective sisters, Daphne and Sabrina, are investigating mysterious thefts of important magic objects. Every nursery and fairy-tale character, every cliché and contemporary trend is thrown into the story, which is laced with puns and jokes. Ganser's precise, sometimes gleeful, German accent for Granny Relda is a treat. (A first-time listener might feel cheated by the surprise of a cliff-hanger ending.)
