Conner Bailey thinks his fairy-tale adventures are behind him--until he discovers a mysterious clue left by the famous Brothers Grimm. With help from his classmate Bree and the outlandish Mother Goose, Conner sets off on a mission across Europe to crack a two-hundred-year-old code. Meanwhile, Alex Bailey is training to become the next Fairy Godmother...but her attempts at granting wishes never go as planned. Will she ever be truly ready to lead the Fairy Council? When all signs point to disaster for the Land of Stories, Conner and Alex must join forces with their friends and enemies to save the day. But nothing can prepare them for the coming battle...or for the secret that will change the twins' lives forever.

Professional reviews

"After twins Alex and Conner are sucked into the fairy-tale world, they embark on a quest to get back home. Some weaknesses in Colfer's writing, such as an overreliance on clichŽs, are overshadowed by his spirited reading. The twins encounter characters from various tales, and Colfer proves convincing as heroines like Snow White and villains like the Big Bad Wolf. Colfer also shines when he breaks into song and when he delivers Conner's dialogue, which is often laugh-out-loud funny. Listeners will get sucked into Alex and Conner's adventures as they solve riddles, learn more about the stories behind their favorite stories, and make discoveries about themselves and each other.
