The Problem Child is the third book in the Sisters Grimm series written by Michael Buckley. In book three of the series, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm tackle their most important mystery: Who kidnapped their parents more than a year ago? Sabrina enters the hideout of the Scarlet Hand, the sinister group of Everafters who are keeping her parents prisoner. She has a chance to rescue her mom and dad but is foiled by the most famous fairy-tale character in the world. With the help of her little sister (who might be tougher than Sabrina realizes) and a long-lost relative, Sabrina finds a powerful weapon for fighting her enemies, and discovers that magic has a high price.

Acknowledgments

"What can I say to my editor, Susan Van Metre, other than "Bless you?" You made my dream come true and you whipped that dream into shape for others to share. Everyone at Amulet Books was just wonderful, most notably Andrea Colvin and Jason Wells. I'd also like to thank my wife and literary agent, Alison Fargis of The Stonesong Press, for being my insperation in words and in life. Thanks to Joseph Deasy, whose support, editing, and brainstorming have been the backbone of these stories. Thanks to my personal cheerleaders, Molly Choi and Maureen Falvey, and to Kevin Houser, Christopher Andreoli, and Sherrine Jones Sontag for their incredible generosity toward me in collage. I'd also like to thank the Brothers Grimm, Andrew Lang, Hans Christian Anderson, L. Frank Baum, Rudyard Kipling, and the countless other from whom I have generously borrowed; and of couse to Daisy, who now, unfortunately, is going to get that bath I've been threatening for some time."
