Author: Chris Colfer
Page: 378
Genre: Fantasy

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. 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.


The Land of stories tells a tale of twins Alex and Conner. They totally having a different personalities. Alex is energetic and top in her class meanwhile Conner, he is a jokerster and always snoozing in the back row. their adventure begins after their father's death and suddenly everything changed with the appearance of their grandmother. After their 12th birthday, they been bequeaths with a family heirloom, an old storybook anthology that been reading to them since young whose turns out to be a dimensional gateway to another world. So then the adventure begins.

I love the enthusiasm that been projected by Alex and the strong character by Conner. i like the way Conner been thinking. What if all this time we have been mislead or misinterpret the moral of the stories from all the fairy tales that we have been read. What if there are another stories, the dark, sad and unrevealed truth that we don't know. 

I like it because I'm totally into fairy tales genre and can relate with all the excitement of meeting the characters from fairy tales. I mean would that be awesome. How fair is the snow white and how charming the prince charming, however there is a part when I don't like about this book. The repetition of the sentences. 

" Steam was practically coming out of the teacher;s ears and nostrils" at page 75. Then you can see it again at page 164 and again at page 361. Despite everything, I still enjoying reading this book. 

Overall
