The Lovereading4Kids comment
September 2012 Debut of the Month.
Full of wit and invention, this is a terrific story which imaginatively blends motifs from fairy stories into a present day adventure. When Elizabeth gets a job in the New York Circulating Material Library she little knows the treasure trove she will discover. The library has many unusual items but, most special of all is its Grimm Collection. When items disappear from the Grimm collection, Elizabeth sets about finding out why.
A Review from one of our Lovereading members, Molly Elizabeth Carr, age 10 The Grimm Legacy is a great book. It’s all about a girl called Elizabeth who gets a special job, which is packed full of adventures! But things are going missing…can Elizabeth save the day! I liked how magic the story is and gives you a real adventure and message from the story. But there are not many illustrations to illustrate the story. My favourite character was Jaya, because she’s a great character and you can always picture her. I recommend this book to anyone 9+. Or anyone who can share the magic! Rating: 5 out of 5
The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman
Elizabeth's new job is very unusual. The building where she works might not look very interesting but behind this ordinary Manhattan facade lurks a very special place indeed. Because here you can borrow anything your heart desires ...And in the basement is something so special, so secret, that Elizabeth can't believe her eyes. The Grimm Collection. Powerful and mysterious items that must be kept safe and can't be lent out to just anyone. So when these objects start disappearing Elizabeth must investigate. But who can she trust? One way or another she has to find out who is stealing from the Grimm Collection ...and for what dark purpose.
