The Land Of Stories has changed my life as in how inspiring and powerful writer Chris is. Whenever I open one of his books I feel as like I get sucked right in and live the stories. These books make me see a whole new prospective on fairy tales and how interesting a character can be. I love these books so much I ordered all 6 books to read all the time over and over :D The way Chris writes inspires me to be a writer myself. I think my favourite book out of all of Land Of Stories
books would be either book 2 or book 6. I am begging you guys to read them! Finally if I were to say anything to Chris if I could actually meet him I would say... plz write a seventh book because they are too good to end and also just because something is in a book doesn't mean it cant be true. Keep it up Chris!

I love all the books in this series and read them many times but my favorite book from all is probably this book. One of my favorite parts is when all of conners characters and friends from the land of stories meet each other because Conner based all his characters on his friends from the land of stories. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fairytales and adventure!!
