This is the second book in THE SISTERS GRIM series.
  Sabrina Grim and her little sister, Daphne, have come to live with their grandmother in Ferryport Landing because their parents have disappeared. Their new hometown is definitely different. There are a lot of fairy-tale characters that live in the little community alongside the "normal people." Like Daphne's teacher Snow White and Prince Charming the town mayor. Sabrina doesn't trust her magical neighbors. She blames them for her parents' disappearance. School starts and she's stuck in Mr. Grumpner's class.Unfortunately his name sounds too much like his disposition. Grumpy. But when he's found dead, hanging from a giant spider web it's obvious that a new mystery is a afoot. One that the sheriff needs help solving.
The story moves fast and is filled with all sorts of kooky and creepy characters that are sure to delight the young reader.
