How do you tie a book into Law Camp?

What's out there--picture books, chapter books, middle readers, YA--that ties into the legal system? You'd be surprised. For instance, did you know there's a legal thriller in a series we've talked about here?

While legal thrillers are an incredibly popular genre (see John Grisham, for instance), there's not exactly a prepoderance* of the stuff on the kidslit shelves. However, the latest book in the Sisters Grimm series is just such a book. Michael Buckley visited the store last month for IRA, and he's a great guy, but I didn't get to ask him about the latest in this really fun series about two girls solving problems amongst fairy-tale folk (called "Everafters" in the books).

Here's what the publisher has to say about Tales from the Hood, Volume 6 in the Sisters Grimm series:

The Grimms defend Mr. Canis in Ferryport Landing’s trial of the century!

This book sees Mr. Canis, dear friend and protector of the Grimm family, put on trial for past crimes. Considering that he’s really the Big Bad Wolf, he has a lot to answer for. Is there any truth to the story told by Little Red Riding Hood? What’s the deal with all that huffing and puffing? Will Mr. Canis be forced to answer for his crimes?

A kangaroo court of Everafters, led by the cruel Queen of Hearts, is determined to find Canis guilty and force the Grimms out of Ferryport Landing.


But that's not the only lawyer-y book, not by far. No, there's more to come...

*Like that? That's a legal-esque term! Don't ask me what it means, go look it up in a dictionary.
