Book recommendation: The Land of Stories – The Wishing Spell



What is up, everyone!

The Land of Stories…. I’m sure you’re just sitting there right now thinking or saying “meh” yup, I know cause that’s what I thought too, I looked at the cover once and just said – “meh, it looks and must be babyish

I never believed the quote – ‘never judge a book by its cover’ until now…

I was bored one day and had nothing to do, I looked at this book on my shelf and began reading it… As I flipped the pages I thought things like – “wow, that’s actually pretty clever” and “I never really thought about that” and “yeah that totally makes so much sense!” but not once did I Think –  “This. Book. Is . Just. Stupid. And. Babyish.” Nope. never, and I can’t imagine ever thinking like that, after reading the book



I liked it so much that I decided to write a blog on it. This is the very first book, and it sure has impressed me!

This, is an extremely  well written, Super interesting and descriptive story about two children- one a storybook geek and the other a witty boy who doesn’t see the point of studies, their father dies in an accident and they lose their home, their mother now works day and night to keep their family running, and on the twins birthday their grandmother actually gives them a gift! A storybook,  but not a normal one, in fact, a magical one, the twins discover the books magic and fall into the adventure-filled land of stories…. now I know this may sound super babyish and boring to you but trust me, it is not.

Have you ever wondered what is the aftermath of stories and what happens to all the characters in the classic stories like Cinderella and the seven dwarfs and where the characters go and what lives they lead?

Well, this is the exact setting where the Land of Stories is situated, It is a wonderful place, but along with the heroes and the good guys villains too exist in all stories and The Land Of Stories or the Otherworld does not exclude them.

Conner and his Sister Alex are immediately afraid when they arrive in this alien world. And Explore the place, but the longer they stay here the more they are afraid of how they will get back to their home. And so while exploring the land of Stories and sometimes barely missing their deaths Conner and Alex disembark on a journey to assemble the wishing spell… Thier only way back home, unfortunately, someone far more powerful is looking for the same ingredients…

Will they be stuck here? That’s what it looks like, read the book to find out!

If I were to rate this book I would rate it-

8 out of 10 for sentence formation and grammar

9 and a half out of 10 for vocabulary

9 And a half for storyline

Moreover, if I were to help you decide whether to buy this book or not, I would say go for it.

This book was superb in all aspects for a child of my age (9-12)

So merry reading!
