The Land of Stories: Worlds Collide
By Chris Colfer
Hi! Have you checked out my favorites? If you haven’t, try to look over there because the question about to ask you is based on my favorites. (Click here if you want to go to favorites.) Did you see The Land of Stories in my favorites? Well, this book review is based on the last one. The cover is white, unlike the ones that you see in the picture. I just found out a few days ago that another one even existed. There is a prologue. You’re going to have to read that if you’re going to want to be able to understand the last chapter.
Before this one, I’m going to give you a quick background of all the books. And then we’ll talk about the book that I’m actually reviewing now. In the other books, there’s a family with two children named Alex and Conner. Their grandmother gives them a book and it’s magic. They fall into it. It transports them to the Land of Stories, the place where all the fairy tale people live. They go into some other books with a potion and try to stop an army that’s trying to take over the world. They recruit some characters from books you might have already read: Peter Pan, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Robin Hood, and some short stories that Conner wrote himself.
Now, they are trying to stop the army and some witches have taken control of Alex’s mind and are making her fight on the bad side. Will they get Alex back and defeat the bad guys in time, or will all be lost and Alex die under the imprisonment of the spell that made her bad? As I always say, read the book to find out.
I recommend this book to people who like a good scare in their stories and to magic-lovers. If you do not like a good scare or magic or both then I don’t want you to read this book.
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor):
There were a few scary parts. If you have read Harry Potter and didn’t think that was too scary, then you won’t think this is too scary either.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor):
There was one part where a fairy and a prince kissed.
I give this book 4 wands.
It had a little too much scariness than I like. Not that it was too scary, but it just went to from a little scary to very scary at the end. I like for a little while for it to be perfect, then a little scary, then happily ever after – the end. But that’s just in my opinion.
Comment if you’ve read this book and let me know how many wands YOU would give it.
