June 1, 2014 by  

The Land Of Stories: The Wishing Spell, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell is a children’s fiction novel written by actor Chris Colfer. It was released on July 17, 2012, and is the first in The Land of Stories trilogy.

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell is described by Colfer as a “modern day fairy tale,” following twins Alex and Conner Bailey as they fall from the real world into a world full of fairy tales they have only ever read about before. But after run-ins with trolls, goblins, wolves, and witches, getting home might be more difficult than they previously thought.

The novel begins inside the Land of Stories. Queen Snow White visits the castle’s dungeon to meet with her stepmother. People call her the “Evil Queen” because of her crimes against Snow White and many others. Snow White questions her stepmother, wishing to know why she attempted to kill her three times and to understand why she was mean to her all those years. Her stepmother consents, but warns Snow White that she does not have a fairy tale to tell.

On Earth, Conner and Alex Bailey are introduced as twin brother and sister. Also introduced is their teacher, Mrs. Peters, who is teaching a lesson on fairy tales written by the Brothers Grimm .

Once the twins reach home, it becomes apparent that they lost their father to a car accident almost a year before. Since then they have lived with their mother. Their family is in a tight spot, causing Mrs. Bailey to work frequent shifts, resulting in her announcement that she will not be home for the twins’ birthday and will make it up to them somehow. The twins’ grandmother arrives for a surprise visit. Along with other presents, to the twins’ amazement, she gives them her precious storybook of fairy tales, The Land of Stories. Alex takes the book to bed with her that night and notices, for the first time, that it is beginning to glow, and a strange humming sound is emitting from it.
