Meanwhile, Alex Bailey is training to become the next Fairy Godmother...but her attempts at granting wishes never go as planned. Will she ever be truly ready to lead the Fairy Council?
When all signs point to disaster for the Land of Stories, Conner and Alex must join forces with their friends and enemies to save the day. But nothing can prepare them for the coming battle...or for the secret that will change the twins' lives forever.

Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
My son liked this installment more than I did. I don't think the author is the best narrator. More significantly, neither of us thought the characters were likable or believable in this one. The female protagonist and many of the female minor characters seemed unlikeable. My son thought the male protagonist was very immature given his stated age. That said, he enjoyed the story and that saved it for him.
One of The Land of Stories books. I can't say enough how wonderful this book is! The books and the audio are enjoyable for all ages! The kids get older one year per book. They start a 11 now 16. Great original fairy tale, there the original fairy tale characters are rewritten with a twist woven I a great original story.
I loved how the story showed the reader what was happening in the different worlds, Alex was learning to become Fairy Godmother as Conner was on a trip to Germany. And the ending was the best part!
We loved every minute of this story!!!! Brilliant writing and reading of the story Chris Colfer. Thank you for sharing your gift with us- such a wonderful and imaginative story. So refreshing to read something wholesome for my 10-year old daughter. I read it with her and loved it!!!!
These books are for any age. I saw Chris on the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon an was intrigued. After the first book I was hooked. Great stories of new and old. I'll never think about these Fairy Tales characters the same way. Well written and read.
