Do you like fairy tales? If so, then you should check out "The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell" by Chris Colfer. The setting takes place in a magic storybook. The characters are Alex and Conner. Alex is the genius and Conner is the kid who just wants to have fun.

The twins get a story book for their birthday. They think it's ordinary, but it's not. I love to get books for my birthday, but I have never gotten a magic book. They fall through the book and now they have to find seven antiques to get back to their home. Since I love fairy tales, this was the perfect book for me. At the same time the twins were searching, someone else is also looking for the items. The spell could only work one more time. It was very suspenseful. Will they get all the items in time? My favorite part is when the twins get Cinderella's glass slipper.

I would recommend this book to kids who like mysteries and adventures. I would give this book five stars because it was Chris Colfer's first book and it was amazing!
