About this item
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.
Using a mysterious book to travel to a land of wonder and magic, twins Alex and Connor meet a host of classic fairy tale characters and nefarious monsters before discovering that returning back home will be more difficult than anticipated. A first novel. 200,000 first printing.
