ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Chris Colfer is a Golden Globe–winning actor best known for his role as Kurt Hummel on Glee. He was honored as a member of the 2011 TIME 100, Time magazine’s annual list of the one hundred most influential people in the world. The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell is his first novel.
AN EXCERPT FROM THE LAND OF STORIES (EXCLUSIVE FROM THE LAND OF STORIES WEBSITE...GO HERE TO READ IT COMPLETELY):

They couldn’t believe what they were seeing. A huge cavalcade of soldiers on white horses rode past them. Their armor was clean and shiny. They carried green-​and-​silver shields with large red apples painted on them and waved flags with the same design.

“Alex, did we go back in time?” Conner anxiously asked his sister. “That looks like something straight out of medieval times!”

The pencils were all obliterated under the horses’ hooves. The soldiers were moving at such a fast and forceful pace that none of them noticed the awestruck twins peeking out from behind the tree.
