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 fairy tales.

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.

            This book is one of my favorite's! It's amazing. It's about a young pair of twins named Alex and Conner who travel into their grandmother's storybook. The adventures they take are interesting and wild. The author is very descriptive and he makes you feel like your in the book. I defiantly recommend this book.

                      I didn’t like it since it was really babyish and totally copied Harry Potter. But it’s okay I guess.
