The plot gets complicated here and there but it's always fun to see another author's imagining of the alternative fairy tales. ( )

I really love this book. I love the series. I'm a big fan of fairy tales. It's not dumbed down at all. It's witty and adventurous. ( )

So the Enchantress who cursed Sleeping Beauty is back for revenge. She will stop at nothing to get all the kingdoms in Fairy Tale land to bow to her and give her their thrones. Little is she expecting the twins to show up or Alex to stand up to her.

Wow, what a lot of action and adventure in this rollicking tale. Fairy Godmother is trying to keep Alex and Connor safe but they are determined to get back to the Land of Stories by any method possible even if it means tricking Mother Goose. They manage to get back and start the quest to stop the Enchantress. They meet up again with old friends who help them on their quest. Even the trolls and goblins are not what they expect. Unexpected twists happen throughout their quest and this story. I could not put it down. I loved reacquainting myself the with characters and meeting some new ones. Some give a little towards the quest and some give all. Well worth reading! ( )

This is book two in the Land of Stories series of kids' novels. I had mixed feelings about the first volume in the beginning, but found that eventually it won me over. This one, I'm pleased to report, I enjoyed all the way through. It doesn't exactly have that memorable, instant-classic quality I'm always secretly hoping for when I open up a book aimed at kids, but it's fun. I particularly enjoy Colfer's versions of classic fairy tale characters. They're flawed, quirky, and always entertaining. Especially the earthy, hard-drinking Mother Goose, who I just wish had been in more of the story and who I'm hoping to see again in future installments.

I do hope we're done with collect-the-items quest plots for the rest of the series, though. I know it's a venerable fantasy trope, but two of them in as many books seems like about enough of that for a while. ( )

The Land of Stories is probably the best book series I've ever read. It has so much suspension and action between the children with a twist of the fairy tales that we used to read when we were kids like Red Riding Hood and Snow White.

Once Upon a Time meets Magic Treehouse in one of my favorite re-imagined fairytale series.

I love the way Colfer kind of turned these classic stories on their heads and how two stories you would never think to connect are intertwined. It's truly creative without losing the original stories integrity. For example, Rumpelstilskin is the youngest brother to the 7 dwarves. Jack from the beanstalk is dating Goldilocks. Red Riding Hood is a queen and the Evil Queen wasn't as evil as once thought.

Esmia the Enchantress is an ex-fairy who had been on the fairy council and was the Fairy Godmothers heir. Sleeping Beauty's grandmother is the first Queen Beauty. Her husband was cursed as the Beast by the Enchantress Esmia because he didn't love her. Queen Beauty broke the curse by loving the Beast. After that failure, the Enchantress cursed the Beauty family with spinning wheels because the grandma Beauty was a spinner of silver before she met the Beast.

Esmia is back and she has resumed her hobby of collecting souls and planning to conquer the fairytale world and the real world as well. In order to do this she has to master the 7 deadly sins and conquer the fairytale worlds past, present, and future to create a portal to the real world.

The unlikeliest crew of characters, Queen Red Riding Hood, Froggy (Prince Charlie), Goldilock's, Jack (from the beanstalk), Alex, and Conner, get together and work to gather the items needed to beat the Enchantress before she takes over all of the fairytale world and becomes unstoppable.

Between Queen Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks's catty exchanges and Conner's snarky observations and interpretation of the stories, I laughed out loud a lot while listening to this audiobook.

There's a great lesson about compassion and forgiveness and that great power comes in small packages. What kings and queens could not defeat, a single kind girl succeeded. The only thing I don't care for is the language. I don't see how cuss words further a fairytale much less why they'd be in a book kids read. I'm an adult so it won't keep me from reading this series. The adventure and story is so good it outweighs a couple cuss words for an adult reader, but it may be a deal breaker for some parents. Happy reading! 📚

To Hannah, for being the bravest, strongest, and most honest person I know, and for showing that it's impossible to be "cursed" when one has a heart as courageous as yours. Also, for giving me my first black eye - you were four, I was nine. It still hurts. Bubba loves you.
