"It's hard not to love a book dedicated to the Glee star's grandmother...Colfer gets off many good lines [and] the nifty ending ties the plot's multiple strands up while leaving room for further fairy tale adventures." (Publishers Weekly)
"In The Land of Stories, Colfer showcases his talent for crafting fancifully imaginative plots and multidimensional characters." (Los Angeles Times)
"Colfer - and actor most famous for playing a countertenor teenager on 'Glee' - is a wizard at voices. In 'Henny Penny,' he gives distinct, birdlike cadences to a duck, a goose, hen, rooster, and a turkey. His yawn from Goldilocks was convincing enough to make me yawn in the driver's seat." (The New York Times Book Review)

Not for me!
Definite a Treasury of Classic Fairy Tales
The small changes added to each story told. They kind of change the way one looks at the original stories, but in a good way.
I would compared it to the Dr. Seuss's Your Favorite Seuss book I discovered one time in Barnes and Noble. It too is a collection of multiple classic stories by Dr. Seuss. From The Cat in the Hat to How the Grinch Stole Christmas and so much more. Books such as these are one of my favorite types of books because they contain several stories all in one book, which, to me, keeps down space from having to buy the other additional books.
Really all of them because they were all funny in their own way.
Yes, but unfortunately this did not happen because life got in the way. LOL. It was more like two sittings.
