When a teacher at her new school recommends her for an after-school job, Elizabeth is grateful both for the opportunity to make some money and to make some new friends. She begins work at the New York Circulating Material Repository which lends items rather than books. Costumes, props for plays, tools, and—the Grimm Collection. The Grimm Collection houses magical objects from the Grimm fairy tales and someone’s tampering with the collection. Things are disappearing and an enormous bird shadows Elizabeth and her colleagues. What is happening and who is the thief? Polly Shulman’s Grimm Legacy provides as much fun as the fairy tales themselves.
