Publisher's Summary

Featuring Mother Goose and Queen Red Riding Hood, fan favorite characters in the Land of Stories series, this boxed set is a must-have for new and old fans alike.

From New York Times best-selling author Chris Colfer comes two new books about two beloved characters, Mother Goose and Queen Red Riding Hood. Mother Goose's diary entries over the last 500 years take listeners on a journey to learn buried secrets; and the young queen gives us her take on politics, government, health, love, and, of course, what it means to be royalty.

Series is getting a bit thin

Not sure why my son and I have gotten a bit tired with this series, when other things from this age group still delight. The characters seem a bit unlikeable in this installment, and despite the narrator/author being an actor, his is not my favorite voice to listen to. Still, if your child likes this series, there's nothing particularly objectionable here. My son liked it more than I did.

I never give bad reviews but this is awful

What disappointed you about Adventures from the Land of Stories Boxed Set?

My daughter and I have listened to the series and we were both looking forward to this book. After about 20 minutes she was asking me when it was going to be over and if I would please turn it off. The Author and Narrator is a very talented person and we enjoy the performance of the series but this was grating. Unless the audience member is older they most likely won't get the humor of these two stories. I would not waste the time or money on this purchase.

What was most disappointing about Chris Colfer’s story?

The one character dialogue for the vast majority of the story makes for an annoying audiobook. The humor is lost on younger fans and generally speaking most children won't get the historical references.

Which scene was your favorite?

None

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

Would like a refund....and I only paid half price.
