Gr 3–7—Twins Alex and Connor, along with Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Mother Goose, and other characters chase a masked man—the twins' uncle—into stories such as The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland. He is always a step ahead and bargains for troops to take over the kingdoms in the fairy world. Alex and Connor wind up separated in the stories of King Arthur and Robin Hood, needing to create a potion and get back to Oz. Peter Pan and the Tin Woodman join the adventures. Several subplots add depth to the narration—a girl finding genetic links to Wilhelm Grimm, Red Riding Hood marrying the Frog Prince, and a witch who takes life's energy from children. Colfer's narration is excellent, giving different voices to the many characters and keeping the pace of the rollicking story moving. VERDICT Adults will appreciate references to Hans Christian Andersen and other classic tales, while children will just appreciate good stories on their own terms.—Debbie Whitbeck, formerly of West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI
Children will engage with Colfer's bubbly writing style and become hooked on the characters and lost in their adventures. This genre of writing never loses its charm, and in The Land of Stories, Colfer has secured the following of a new generation of fairytale fans. Teaching English (Primary Matters)

So, they follow their uncle into many other stories like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and many more. They need to stop there uncle from making his army bigger with all the evil characters from these different stories.
I really loved this story because of all the adventurous times that they all had.
Once I started reading this book, I didn’t want to put it down. There are parts in the book that make your heart race and you actually feel like your in the book.
I would recommend this book to all the people that love an adventurous, fantasy, action filled book or a really great book in general. The Land of Stories is a great series to read.
I mean she and he and they...ugh.
To be completely honest, I went into this thinking that this book would end the saga. I was wrong.
Alex has discovered the masked man and now has been kicked off the fairy council.
Plus she's losing control. She's losing her temper. And every time she does...her powers go well enchantress evil.
Red and Charlie didn't get married. He went with the witch who cursed him in order to protect Red. Goldilocks is pregnant..and hormonal.
The masked man has turned the witches against well...everyone else.
He stole a potion that the former fairy-godmother made to cheer him up on a random day before stripping him of his powers.
He is now traveling through realm after realm collecting fairytale villains to assist him in taking over.
So..the adventure begins.
King Arthur's time (Turns out OMG has a thing for Merlin)
If you have read the land of stories. I highly suggest this one.
If NOT...start with book 1.
These aren't just for kids. I'm in my 20's and stayed up reading each and everyone of these books.
