The Wishing Spell (The Land of Stories Series Book 1)
Author: Chris Colfer
Goldilocks: wanted dead or alive for burglary, thievery, and running from the law. Little Red Riding Hood: a queen with her own kingdom. Cinderella: pregnant with her and Prince Charming’s first child. Ever after is here, and Alex and Conner are smack dab in the middle of it. It all began when their grandmother visited them on their 12th birthday with a special gift: the book of fairy tales she used to read to them when they were little. But this is no ordinary book — it’s a portal! Suddenly Alex and Conner are transported to the Land of Stories, where fairy tales are more than real— they’re out of control. Soon the twins are caught in a web of intrigue involving everyone from Jack (of beanstalk fame) to the Little Mermaid to the Big Bad Wolf, with Snow White’s evil stepmother pulling the strings. And getting back home may require the greatest magic of all.
