“If you've ever wondered what happened after 'happily ever after,' this is the book for you. A fun romp through well-known fairy tales, a wonderful adventure with just enough cliff hangers to keep the reader coming back for more, with a few surprises thrown in. A thoroughly enjoyable book!”
— Janice Hunsche, Kaleidosaurus Books, Fishers, IN
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 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.
