Book Reviews from Our Little Patrons!
“If you love adventures, I would recommend that you read “The Wishing Spell” from the Land of Stories series. Here is a preview of the first book. 12 year old twins, Alex and Connor, find a secret in their storybook. It leads them to another world- The Land of Stories. Having fallen into their book, Alex and her brother Connor, look for the ingredients for the spell to get them back home. Along the way, they meet people such as: Snow White, Cinderella, and other fairy tale characters. Unfortunately, the Evil Queen (aka, Snow White’s step mother) chases them in their search. Read on to discover what happens. This is an adventure-packed story you will definitely enjoy! There are several additional books in this series that follow along with their adventures.”- Elizabeth Jones, age 9
