The Grimms defend Mr. Canis in Ferryport Landing's trial of the century!

This book sees Mr. Canis, dear friend and protector of the Grimm family, put on trial for past crimes. Considering that he's really the Big Bad Wolf, he has a lot to answer for. Is there any truth to the story told by Little Red Riding Hood? What's the deal with all that huffing and puffing? Will Mr. Canis be forced to answer for his crimes?

A kangaroo court of Everafters, led by the cruel Queen of Hearts, is determined to find Canis guilty and force the Grimms out of Ferryport Landing. Meanwhile, Puck has decided to focus more on his mischievous ways, making a few new troublemaker friends. So it's up to Sabrina and Daphne to find evidence to save Canis--and their investigation may reveal more than they hoped.

Readers have embraced the first five books in the series, and this gripping courtroom drama won't disappoint.

Great book! I like this version of Little Red Riding Hood. Don't trust anybody, though, almost everyone is a traitor!

“"By the way," Puck said softly. It had been an hour since he had last spoken and she was startled to hear him still awake. "You don't need the makeup."
Sabrina felt like her face was on fire. he knew about her latenight beauty sessions. And, if she had heared him correctly, he was also admitting that he thought she was pretty. she looked over at him and found he was looking at her.
"I kind wish I hadn't said that," he said.
"Me, too," she replied.
"Would it help if I said you were a stinky, muck-covered toad-face?"
She nodded and edged as she could on the trampoline. Puck did the same.

I know it is a little long but after the moment in book three and going to the futre and seing what is in store i love it!!!!!!

"It does more than blow houses down. Right, Daphne?" Sabrina said. The little girl nodded. "It cures the mentally insane."
"Uh, maybe you should turn it on yourself, 'cause you sound crazy," Puck replied.
