What a fun little tale...especially to all of us that live, breath, and work in libraryland. Picture this: a young girl (Elizabeth) is recommended for a job by her social studies teacher as a page in a repository...it's not your typical library though. It doesn't lend out books, but objects. Elizabeth earns the librarian's trust with her work ethic, stellar test results, and fondness for all 'things'. She is entrusted with the key to the The Grimm Collection i.e. The Grimm Legacy. Oh! What a sight to behold...from the wicked stepmother's mirror, to the twelve princesses' dancing shoes, to a magic carpet, Elizabeth finds out all these objects that are intregal to the Grimm fairy tales really do exist!

But, shortly after starting her job, some of these precious objects go missing. It is up to Elizabeth and her friends, Marc, a tall, dark handsome basketball player, Anjali, a beautiful, talented girl who goes to a gifted school, and Aaron, a shy, yet sometimes grumpy boy who just needs a friend, to figure out what exactly is going on at the New York Circulating Repository. They meet all sorts of imagined (or are they?) creatures and humans in their quest to bring all of Grimm's objects home. A fast-moving, dangerous adventure story full of fairy tale images and folklore.
