About the Book
Once upon a time, in faraway Grimmlandia . . .
Goldilocks is so eager to make friends at Grimm Academy, she's even tempted to accept an invitation to join E.V.I.L. -- it's just nice to be included! But she doesn't want to be a villain. Can Goldie get inside the secret society and do some good?
My Take on the Book
This story is one of a series of "fairy tale character " stories using the fairy tale or nursery rhyme characters. . The reading level is grade 4, but the interest level is third through sixth grades.
There are 6 books in the series with each book focusing on a different princess or female character in a fairy tale or nursery rhyme. The characters in this particular story centered around the stories or rhymes written by the brothers Grimm.
All the characters attend the Grimm Academy where they learn about spells, magic, using magic wands, etc. There is a problem in this story which centers around Ms. Wicked (Snow White's wicked stepmother) who becomes the interim principal of the academy. Mr. Rumpelstiltskin has disappeared. Of course Ms. Wicked changes everything so it is not a pleasant place to attend school,but Goldilocks and her friends plan to change that and find Mr. Rumpelstiltskin (which they do).
It is interesting how the authors intertwine the fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters and produce a chapter book which has adventure, mystery, humor, and lots of interest for the reader. I think once your child reads one of these stories , they will probably want to read another one.
