Not your mother's Fairy Tale Land!

bookcover
Author: Chris Colfer

When twins, Alex and Conner, discover the magical powers of a fairy tale book their Grandmother leaves them, they are transported into the kingdoms of a not-so-happy fairy tale land.  In order to get home they must collect various items to complete the Wishing Spell.  This is a great middle school  book, especially for those who are familiar with the classic fairy tale characters.....but always be looking for the "twist in the tale!"
