What an odd yet enchanting story! The author weaves a study of the Grimm Fairy Tales into a murder mystery. The ghost of Jacob Grimm wandered for years until he found a special boy, Jeremy Johnson Johnson, who could hear him. Jacob encouraged Jeremy to improve his dire situation by studying hard and setting a goal of a university education. Jeremy is distracted by Ginger and they go adventuring into the mysterious disappearances of children. Rich with characters and sprinkled with Grimm Tales, told in a melodious voice, this is a truly unique story. Highly Recommend.
