Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairytales.
The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.

love to read and be read to...books are the one thing you can always depend on
love loved loved it... bought the next book and can hardley wait to hear it...my grand daughter is excited too..
I did like this book the story is fun. I like the adventure
Sometimes she reads way to fast, her words get mumbled, and you can't understand her. Her accents and voices changed or stayed the same for some characters so sometimes it got confusing as to who was saying what until a name was mentioned.
Ok fyi- possible spoilers here- really is a good read. I am a little confused as to whether or not this is young adult or children's book material. I didn't mind it talking about someone being pregnant, but then you have scantily clad pics of certain characters...which is just, odd, all in itself. But worth a listen.
will be playing this for the kids on our next road trip. great story, nicley put together and clean. well done & read Mr. Colfer, he even sings a wee bit! downloading the rest of the series now
Didn't even finish this book it was so bad. The characters are full of pre-teen angst and drama. Nothing redeeming about them and certainly nothing I would ever consider introducing to my children.
Whoever was doing the reading was fantastic but she didn't have much to work with as far as redeeming material.
A very enjoyable first novel from newcomer Chris Colfer. Has a heavy Chronicles of Narnia influence but it shines most with its sense of humor. Great performance also, though the narrator seems to have a bit of trouble with male voices.
A lot of fun.
I purchased this book on special, I did not realize that it was rated for 10 yr olds.
But I liked it! it was a bit predictable, but I enjoyed hearing about the original fairy tales and would listen when my hands were otherwise occupied.
you couldn't really get to lost if your mind wandered a bit.
this was scifi/fantasy lite
