Will the girls be able to heal their broken hearts and trust of others after the disappearance of their parents and who is this strange woman with her dog, friend, and old jalopy of a car?
I for one am a big fan of most things fairy tale related so seeing the Grimm name on a book with two girls running from a giant's hand intrigued me so I decided to check it out. What I found is an interesting story about a society of Fairy tale characters (like Fable) who live in regular society in a simple place out of the way called Ferryport Landing. As you read you can see how close the Grimm family is and learn the some of their history with all of the fairy tale characters known also as Everafters. What I got was a book of two girls who although sisters seemed to be sweet and sour but truly care for one another as they discover the impossible and find themselves on an adventure as common views of classic fairy tale characters are challenged before you reach the end of the book. However it is not exactly happily ever after as the book continue on to part two of nine.
One of my favorite parts of the book would have to be when Puck (yes from Shakespeare) tries to explain to the sisters who is after being accused of being Peter Pan by the sisters. Of course most of the conversations between Puck and the girls are some of the best parts of the book. :)...more

This book although based on the Disney movie of the same name has slight differences making this story more simple then the animated film in many aspects while not losing the snarkiness (especially between Hiro and Gogo.)
Hiro is a boy genius with a natural talent at inventing things and loves his brother Tadashi who always seems to know the right thing to do to bring a smile to anyone, even in the hardest of times. Like the movie this story is basically focused on Hiro who deals with hardships that arise and learning you can rely on others in the direst of times. The 1st manga leads us all the way up to Hiro upgrading Baymax to a combat robot and Tadashi's friends agree to help him (now with the help of super suits created by Hiro but they haven't shown their powers yet in this book.
There are several funny parts in the book but if I were to chose a favorite I would say I really liked when Hiro goes to Tadashi's friends for help and accidentally insults them leading him to get smacked by Gogo and baymax declaring his Pain level has spiked to 10 playing off of his earlier experience of Baymax asking him to rate his pain when he subbed his toe. If you like manga and Disney then you might want to try this new take on this super hero tale. :)
