The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer

The Wishing Spell Land of Stories  {#1}
By Chris Colfer
Published July 17th, 2012 by Little, Brown Young Readers.
438 Pages
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
I got this book because the author is my favorite actor from the show Glee. After a few pages I really got into it. You will too.

This book is so magical.  The characters are Alex and Conner and they are twins. Alex is a girl that is so smart and kind of nerdy.  Conner is a class clown and the one that is not really the brightest kid.  When the teacher says they are going to study fairy tales Alex was excited.  When they got home  grandma gave them the book Land Of Stories.  Then things got weird. They FELL into the book and they keep meeting weird but real fairytale people, from Snow White to The Evil Queen. Can the kids do anything to get themselves back home? Well if they steal the glass slipper I guess they can do anything.  At the end will they go home or will they be someone's dinner.  

I think this book is good for teachers to read out loud to third-fifth graders. This book is about family, trust, and faith. Really anyone can read it and I hope you will.  The Land of Stories is a series so I will read the other books and tell you how awesome they are. I hope you read this book, you will love it.
