My wife, who works in a library, picked this up because the title reminded her of some coworkers.

This is the first of a series featuring a couple of pre-teen detectives. It is a fun, breezy read that would probably be great for any young reader, as it incorporates familiar fairy tale/fantasy characters and their personalities with an easy-to-follow mystery/adventure.

As I read this, I can't help but think that the TV series "Once Upon A Time" borrowed heavily from this series. That's not a bad thing for either series, but just an observation.
