The Sisters Grimm

What fun! The Fairy-Tale Detectives kicks off The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley, and it is certainly a treat for fairy-tale enthusiasts of all ages.

I just finished reading it and wanted to share some cool links that the author included in the extensive guide at the end of the book.

Brother’s Grimm: Fairy Tales, History, Facts, and More from National Geographic

The SurLaLune Fairy-Tale Site by Heidi Anne Heiner, a very kick butt librarian!

Can’t wait to do some exploring!

The Opposite of Kick Butt

I am not feeling very kick butt lately, people. In fact, I’m feeling quite the opposite. Not that things at the ‘brary are going badly or anything—it’s just that there’s so much going on, so many patrons, and so few books and videos left on the shelves that it’s a bit of a struggle staying caught up and feeling optimistic day in and day out. As of yesterday, we had given out well over 2000 reading logs to the fifth grade and under set, and almost 500 reading logs to sixth through twelfth graders. And the Summer Reading Program had only started 8 days prior!

On the plus side, I’m now on a 3 day weekend. Even though I’m going in for an hour or two on Monday to practice one of the 6 puppet shows we’re performing over the summer, I plan to do a whole lot of vegging for the remaining 70 hours of my break:)
