Well, I finished reading The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman about two to three weeks ago, but haven’t gotten around to doing the review until now. Anyway, for the most part, I liked the book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a relatively quick read. However, I had a few questions about the book. So, if you haven’t read the book, don’t go any further.
- Why did Mr. Mauskopf choose Elizabeth? Was it because she chose to write about the Brothers Grimm?
- Why does Aaron dislike Marc so much? Did Marc do or say something that offended Aaron that happened prior to the start of the book? Or was it just something about Marc that Aaron doesn’t like?
- How is that Elizabeth, Marc, Aaron, and the other characters, can sense the potency of magic in the objects?
- How did all of the items in the Grimm Collection as well as the other collections, like the Wells Bequest, get their magical potency? And what about the creatures like Griffin, Mr. Mauskopf’s pet “dog”, or the infamous bird? Were they animals that were enchanted by fairy godmother type character, humans who were turned into animals, animals that were created along the lines of Frankenstein’s creature and that eventually procreated?
- How is that Elizabeth was able to take the information of learning about magic in stride?
- Why did Wallace Stone do what he did? It couldn’t have all been for the money.
- Why does Gloria Badwin as well as other collectors collect dolls that were formerly humans?
- Is Elizabeth’s mother’s doll collection a collection much like Gloria Badwin’s?
