The Fairy-Tale Detectives - Peter Ferguson, Michael Buckley Buckley creates a world where Grimm descendants protect and police Everafters (fairy tale creatures). It was a bit of a leap to accept the characters of Grimm's tales alongside the Carroll's Queen of Hearts of Shakespeare's Puck, but their personalities and special skills aid the story well.

End of the book includes a brief history of the tales -- how they came to be, how they have been transferred/shared, and how subtle changes are made each time. Appendix also has brief list of references to fairy tale anthologies and urls for online collections.
