The Big Bad Wolf is on trial, and it’s up to the Sisters Grimm to prove his innocence in Tales from the Hood, the sixth adventure in Michael Buckley’s beloved New York Times bestselling fantasy Grimm Sisters series, featuring art by Peter Ferguson.

In Ferryport Landing, everyone gets their day in court—even the Big Bad Wolf. Mr. Canis is put on trial for past crimes, and Mayor Heart’s kangaroo court is sure to find him guilty. It’s up to the Grimms to uncover evidence to save their friend, though Sabrina starts to wonder whether they would all be safer with the Wolf in jail.

Despite her misgivings, Sabrina and her sister, Daphne, investigate what really happened in the Big Bad Wolf’s most famous tale—and the real story might bring long-awaited justice for more than just Mr. Canis!

Repackaged in paperback with original cover art, these anniversary editions of the beloved Sisters Grimm series are the perfect opportunity for existing fans to revisit the adventures of the Grimm family and for new readers to discover the magic of the series for the first time.
