Waiting on Wednesday: The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I absolutely adore fairytales, so the cover of this book immediately caught my eye. The synopsis sounded fun, so even though I don't normally have children's books as my WOW picks, The Land of Stories is a delightful exception :)

The Land of Stories Cover Title: The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell
Author: Chris Colfer, Brandon Dorman (Illustrator)
Genre: Children's Fantasy

Book Description (from Goodreads):

Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairytales.

The Land of Stories tells the 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 come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.

But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.
