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 the 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.

The kids loved it- and so did we!

Good plot line but bad writing ruins it.
A different narrator. Chris Colfer should not be reading his own story. As a matter of fact, he should not be writing this story. The Land of Stories is overrun with simple statements, cliches, and similes to the point that I had to stop listening to it.
The action does not even begin until Chapter 5. I was continually rolling my eyes as I listened along to this terribly written story. There are much better children's book authors out there to listen to than waste time on this.
He read the book as if it was the first time he had ever seen the words. I was stunned to learn that he was an actor.
The plot idea was a good one. This audio book needed an author with talent and a background in writing. Simple sentences and similes do not a good book make.
The longer I listened to the story, the more I disliked it and the author. Stopped at Chapter 13. I just could not tolerate a minute more of Chris Colfer reading in a See Jane Run style of sentences.
