  • The Grimm Legacy

    By Polly Shulman

    Read by Julia Whelan

    "A fizzy confection...the story buzzes along." - The New York Times

    Starred review. "The author brings the seemingly disparate elements together in the end, while still making certain that her protagonist's problems are not completely solved by the world of magic. Shulman's prose is fast paced, filled with humor, and peopled with characters who are either true to life or delightfully bizarre. Fans of fairy tales in general and Grimm stories in particular will delight in the author's frequent literary references, and fantasy lovers will feel very much at home in this tale that pulls out all the stops." - School Library Journal

    "Narrator Whelan gives Vivian a curiously aloof and cool voice, even in the face of danger from those who see her group as unbelievers and worse. But the distance in her voice as she presents just the facts emphasizes how dominant the evangelical Church of America has become, as no one questions its control." - Booklist
