No, but thanks!


Well, this is nice: I was just wondering what Michael Buckley was up to, and the internet kindly provided an exciting answer! Apparently, Buckley and his young son Finn have co-written a choose-your-own-adventure book called Lenny the Lobster Can't Stay For Dinner...

Heart of the Storm, by Michael Buckley


Heart of the Storm is the final volume in Michael Buckley's Undertow trilogy. All of the books in this series have been a mixed bag—at times wildly imaginative and exciting, at others just a overstuffed mess—and this last installment is no different...

I'm clearly going to need to refresh my memory, but my hopes for this middle installment are high...

Undertow, by Michael Buckley


Michael Buckley's Sisters Grimm is one of my all-time favorite kids' series. The books have their problems—actually, some really big problems—but they are so funny, romantic, and action-packed that it's easy to overlook their flaws. Buckley's new YA novel Undertow is much darker than his previous books, but...

Dude's been slacking.

I'll probably buy this book when it comes out in January, even though the only truly pressing Sisters Grimm question I have is WHERE IS BOOK NINE, BUCKLEY?!?

Michael Buckley has gone AWOL

The last several times I've checked Amazon for news of the ninth and final Sisters Grimm book, the only thing that's turned up has been a book about Capital Tax Acts. I've managed to remain calm,...

The Sisters Grimm: Tales from the Hood, by Michael Buckley


Tales from the Hood, the sixth entry in Michael Buckley’s impishly funny Sisters Grimm series, is just as enjoyable as its predecessors—but the increasing darkness and complexity of the Sisters Grimm world has us wondering if Buckley is losing control of his own mythology...
