Publisher's Summary

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.

Not for us

Narration is rushed, sometimes hard to understand. For an older age bracket than my kids.

Imagination plus

Chris' way of interweaving old-school fairy tales is so great! Young adults can relate to his descriptions of items and characters. Chris' performance of reading these wonderful books adds to the likableness of the tale.

What made the experience of listening to The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell the most enjoyable?

The way in which he reads and changes his voice for each character is really amusing to hear :D

I guess the other books in the series? XD If not those, then I am unsure...

I liked his voice changing for each character, and that he clearly pronounces his words.

I haven't finished it all yet, so not yet, I'm part way through chapter two

Horrible narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

the narrator makes us all dizzy since she speaks incredibly fast. I am American and still i can't take her speed!

Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Colfer again?

sure, story is ok. But it is very predictible. only chose as it was the assigned reading for my 9 year old for his book club.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Colfer?

Anyone but her!!!!
