Which brings me to my second point.

The Evil Queen tells them told the story of where she came from. Jul 26, Jazz rated it did not like it.

The Wishing Spell (The Land of Stories, #1) by Chris Colfer

There’s some fleeting danger to the kids at the hands of assorted villains, from wolves to the Evil Queen, and a number of wicked characters come to a violent but not graphically described end. I spent years hiding in a hole, afraid to come out because of what people would think of me. This is my 1 favorite series of all time, I am now ashamed to say that I didn’t even want to read this book at first.

From what I’ve seen of him he is a very clever, creative and witty guy so I have possitive expectations about this book.

Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. View all 10 comments. While there, they hear from other homeless people, and realise a portal between the tge is going to open up in the library. Though he thanks the Brothers Grimm in his acknowledgements, Colfer ignores the ending printed in their stories in which Snow White makes her mother “dance” in red-hot iron shoes at her wedding.


It can be but it can also be suprisingly beautiful and kind.

The Wishing Spell: The Land of Stories, Book 1

Floozy is a funny word. It’s a good attempt at a first novel but there are many issues such as the dumbing down for children and the very clear exposition that make me wonder if the book would have gotten published by an unknown author. Connor barges in to stop Alex, but Alex loses her balance and falls into the book. It’s written as if for age 6 Well-intentioned but clumsy. Their mother is trying to balance her job and her family after her husband was killed in a car accident.

I had so much fun travelling around the Land of Stories with Alex and Conner and I will definitely be purchasing all 5 remaining books in the series!

All of the characters are really magnificent and even if you never imagined them to be like Chris has written them, you will have an unforgettable time travelling through the world of Chris’ imagination. While that is cute and all, there’s then that he’s done the scriptwritting for Struck By Lightning, a movie which he stars and prod I can see why many wonder about it being another celebrity using a ghost writer but Chris Colfer has been into writting for far longer than you think.

Five companion books to the colefr have been published. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

The twins here learn and apply the fairy tales’ lessons in their quest. I understand how some people might be a bit skeptical in regards to Chris Colfer’s actual writing talents, but the truth is – the guy just seems to be a natural-born storyteller, and it doesn’t matter which medium he uses for it.


Primarily Conner and his humorous jibes toward his sister: In the series my favorite characters are: East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Chris Colfer wrote this book beautifully, it is so engaging. He then exits to the Fairy Tale world. Alex knows that this is a portal to the other world. I was surprised that for a book aimed at children there was some questionable language.

Even as an adult I was very entertained by the adventures of these two kids as they journey through the Land of Stories and meet all of the fairy-tale characters we grew up reading about. And yes, it’s technically middle grade, which isbut I didn’t know about a lot of sexual things until I was 12 or older, and besides, with how low the reading level of this has got to be, kids younger than that would be reading it.

The Wishing Spell is.

This is a novel, but oddly the writing is so basic that it reads like a screenplay instead. The world that Chris Thhe introduces us to is filled with magic, charming creatures and familiar names of princesses, princes, fairytale heroes and heroines. The bad news is that four girls called the Book Huggers are also going.
