The Sisters Grimm: The Problem Child by Michael Buckley

The Problem Child (Sisters Grimm Series #3)

Overview by Barnes and Noble:

A mystery story with a monstrous twist

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.
My thoughts:
As Daphne and Sabrina solve a mystery or two, more mysteries reveal themselves.  Not only do they have a grandmother they thought was dead, but they  have another relative that no one has told them about and no one talks about.  Even more mysterious, someone used forgetful dust to make the rest of the town forget him too, because of something he did, but what did he do?
Sabrina sees her parents, but she cannot seem to get them away from their pint size captor.  How could a character who seemed so nice in her story have turned out the way she is now and what is the monster that she is treating as a pet.  Using the family journals and the stories they get from their grandmother, Mr. Cainus and their long lost relative they piece together the past and make progress in rescuing their parents.
The find out more about the Red Hand, but there is still more to discover.  In the battle that ensues someone close to them is hurt and brought close to death.
