I was skeptical at first, but I have to admit that I enjoyed this book and got caught up in the story. ( )

Twins Alex and Conner fall through a Fairy Tale Book their Grandmother gave them and starts them on a quest to get home. Along the way they meet their favorite Fairy Tale characters and some not so favorite (the big bad wolf pack for one). I found this book to be refreshing and delightful. I loved the different take on the characters like Red Riding Hood being self centered, Goldilocks on the run from the law. I had a hard time putting the book down and truthfully read it in a day. If you want to read a book that is a change of pace from what you normally read give this book a try. ( )

Chris Colfer has written the reader into the magical world of fairytales and legends we love! He truly lets us experience much more than a moral tale. He has a gift for helping the reader discover himself/ her-self.

I was most impressed by the author's insight into the characters. Each of the characters was introduced to me again with a keen observation and understanding. The book is filled with adventure and intrigue!

In this book, young Alex and Connor are transported to a magical land where all the fairytales they've ever read have come to life before their eyes, with several unexpected twists. They embark on a quest to get all the items required to cast the "Wishing Spell" and return back to their own world.
