“Elizabeth is a high school student in NYC who is offered a job in the NYPL repositories collections. This job however entails that she enter the world of magic in their special Grimm collection. Again this book started out a little slow for me. I had a hard time getting into the story and forming a connection with the characters. However towards the end the action picked up and I really got into it. My favorite thing by far was the setting of the characters in the NYPL. It made me want to go check out the real repositories.”RPink wrote this review Tuesday, October 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“A Special Library and library pages involved in magic got me interested. Objects from the Grimm Brothers stories...silly fun.”Myrna wrote this review Thursday, September 13, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Everyone Knows what a library is but this ojne is different. It not only loans out books, but objects too. But not all of them are ordinary, some are MAGIC. All the objects from well known fairytales exist in this library, they are all apart of a collection known as the Grimm Collection. Only a select few can work down here because even some of the evil objects from fairytales stay there. There is the magic mirror from Snow White which twists your image and actually it shows you but its an evil you. Some of the objects are good like the mermaid comb that makes your hair beautiful, but all magic comes with a price. You have to give something up, but its not anything ordinary that you give up. You can give up your first born, and get it back when you return the item. Or you could give up being able to see in color, or your sense of direction and get it back when you return the item, but if you dont return it, what you gave up isn't returned to you.
this book is full of adventure and magic and is very fun to read so read it right now!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Try to picture in your mind a girl investigating a mystery. Not just a mystery, but a magical mystery. Magic doesn’t seem real but in the “Grimm Legacy” by Polly Shuman everything comes to life.
“The Grimm Legacy” is a story about a girl named Elizabeth Rew that takes place in New York. Elizabeth becomes a page at the Circulating Material Repository, a lending library. She is told, that there is a magical room called the Grimm Collection. This room is a room that holds all the magical objects from fairy-tail books. The room is the most important room in the repository and rumors say that people have been stealing objects from it. Elizabeth Rew has to undertake a scary journey with her page friends Marc and Aaron. Will Elizabeth succeed or will she get trapped forever in the Grimm Collection?
The genre of this book is fantasy-fiction. I thought this book was very well written. It was written from one point of view. The plot dragged me into the book and I could imagine everything in the story. I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries and magical creatures. This is a good book for ages 12 and up.
