Tales from the Hood (Sisters Grimm Series #6) by Michael Buckley

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

Funny, suspenseful, and fast-paced, The Sisters Grimm continues to charm readers with its outrageous take on familiar fairy tales.
In Ferryport Landing everyone gets a day in court—even the Big Bad Wolf, a.k.a. Mr. Canis. When Canis is put on trial for past crimes, Mayor Heart’s kangaroo court is determined to find him guilty. It’s up to the Grimms to uncover evidence to save their friend, though Sabrina starts to wonder whether they would all be safer with the Wolf in jail. Despite her misgivings, Sabrina and her sister, Daphne, investigate what actually happened in the Big Bad Wolf’s most famous tale—and the real story is full of surprises!

My thoughts:
Daphne and Sabrina engage in research through the records their family has been keeping for hundreds of years to find out what really happened the night that Red Riding Hood's grandmother was killed.  They search for the woodcutter and interview Red herself to try to get to the bottom of the story.  Meanwhile, the Mad Hatter is presiding as judge over the case and Robin Hood is trying his best to defend Mr. Canis.  The robed jury seems to be against the family and Mr. Canis and Mr. Canis seems to have given up on himself.  Sabrina breaks Daphne's trust and this puts a rift between the girls.  What they discover through interviews is much different than they had thought, but will they be able to present any of their evidence in court with an erratic judge who never gives the defense a chance to cross examine or question any of the witnesses?
