I love Fairy Tales, which is exactly why I was excited to start reading this little nugget.
Synopsis: Alex and Conner Baily’s world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern-day world with the enchanting realm of classic Fair Tales.
“The Land of Stories” tells a 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 com face-to-face with Fairy Tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encountered with witches, wolves, goblins,and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.
My thoughts/review: The beginning seemed to drag on a bit, but as soon as The Land of Stories came into play, I was enchanted with this tale. Sadly, the book never left me on the edge of my seat, rather it made me sink into the chair, enjoying every chapter that came with the turn of the page. It was a relaxing read, something I quite enjoyed about this book.
There was plantly of places in the book I can consider my favorite. But to me the very best part out of the book was a riddle inside a book our main characters ending up getting. Now, I’m not one for riddles. So why did I like this one? Okay, maybe cause it was Fairy Tale themed. Once I read it I began thinking, focusing on the Fairy Tales, trying to figure out what the answers might be.
It was a delightful read. If I was younger by six to seven years, give or take, I would have loved to have this read to me at night.
I, personally, would recommend this to any young or old Fairy Tale lover. It was such a great, fun, relaxing read. I’ll probably pick it up again sometime. I can’t wait to read book 2 for this series.
