The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer
This another bedtime reader. My whole year of reading is basically reading to kids.
Land of Stories we read at the same time as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, alternating nightly. My son much preferred this book; My daughter complained she never knew what was going on, largely because she would fall asleep halfway through each evening’s reading.
This is an okay book, the first in what appears to be a popular series. Written by one of the kids from Glee, it documents a fairy-tale obsessed couple of siblings that fall into the world where the stories come from. There’s a whole lot of fan-girling at storybook characters and “wow can you believe we’re really here and it’s really real?” stuff.
There’s a lot of plot machinations to get them going on a quest that will allow the writer to introduce all of the storybook characters.
All in all, it was okay.
