    " On accident, we began our Land of Stories adventure with Book IV. We were on a long road trip and after hearing book IV, we HAD to start at the start. Audiobooks had a great way for us to continue the journey. This story is great for all ages. "

    " I'm a huge fan of Chris Colfer. He is a young talented guy. He's just amazingly awesome. I took this book not just because he wrote it but because it seems really attractive. I wanted to finish it in one day, it's really a good story. It's was detailed - sometimes too much details - and I love the way he makes the caracters speaks. I like the fact that he make Alex the opposite of Conner. I really recommended people to read this book :) "

    " Hooray! This has been a completely delightful bedtime read with my 7yo. We laughed, we teared up, we were excited. The child was on the edge of her seat for some of it. Because I've read a book or two in my life, most of the revelations were not a surprise to me, but she's still young enough to really get excited by such things. Happy we bought it. I have a feeling she'll remember it forever. "

    " OMG!!!! This book was so great. Every character, plot part, and setting was just amazing! I can't wait for the sequel and to read more of Chris Colfer's awesome imagination! "

    " A creative look at the fairy tale lives that aren't quite the happily ever after we heard as children. Two siblings travel through their book to a land of stories. They meet Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty. They search for treasures to make the Wishing Spell to get back home. In their search, the Evil Queen searches for the same. I recommend this book to anyone who is still young at heart. "
