This series is my ABSOLUTE favorite!! I love the suspense and the dramatic endings, and I 100% recommend it. It is just right for late primary students and early high schoolers. I can't stop putting it down! Five stars from me!

This was incredible! It had nursery rhymes I had forgotten about! And the classic story's were great too! P.S. This is a really heavy and thick book so be warned!

The Snow Queen was great. I didn't think it would be this good. After reading the Land of Stories series, I was pretty confused with what the Snow Queen's story was. I really liked Gerda and I think Colfer is great at creating characters even in short stories.
I rate the Snow Queen 68/100.

The Little Mermaid was so wonderful. I think it really expressed its moral the most because it at the end, The Little Mermaid disintegrated into foam. I feel like tragedy is the best method of teaching a lesson.
I rate this 82/100.

This was a great book. I do think that the land of stories book 1 was better though.

"If you notice the pages glowing, followed by an inviting humming noise, don't be afraid! That is just the book's magic. But whatever you do, don't lean too far into the book. You never know where you might end up."
