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.
Written by Chris Colfer, of the famed television show GLEE, this middle grade fantasy delves into the world of fairies tales and perhaps not so happily-ever-afters. Twelve-year-old Alex loves fairy tales and has read them all, while her twin brother, Conner, couldn't care less. But in a bizarre turn of events, Alex and Conner find themselves inside of a book of classic tales. In order to escape the book, the pair must get their hands on almost a dozen fairy-tale elements. At the same time, they encounter characters such as Jack and Goldliocks, and must cope with enemies galore, like the Evil Queen who once only had eyes for Snow White.
