The Wishing Spell (#1 Land of Stories)

Author(s): Chris Colfer

Middle Fiction (8-12) | Books to read after/instead of Harry Potter

The first book in Chris Colfer's #1 New York Times bestselling series The Land of Stories about two siblings who fall into a fairy-tale world
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 fairy tales.
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 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.

Young Reader Review by Lola, 12:

I read this book in year 1 - 2 and each month waited for a new one to come out. This is one of my all time favorite books and recommended it to Fantasy and Harry Potter lovers. If you have finished this series and are looking for a good book you need to read A Tale of Magic (the sequel to A Land of Stories). I recommend it to 8 to 12 year olds.
