I now realise there has been an important gap in our children's education - neither of them had ever heard of him, in French or English!

Deary me Marcus, get those children educated!

Nic is reading a mystery/adventure series of American books called the Sisters Grimm translated into French, that she came across at the school library.

It follows the adventures of two sisters who start to find out that the people in their life are actually fairy tale characters (eg their teacher Miss White is in fact Snow White, etc)....and it gets complicated from there on!

So that is where she got it from.
