Chris Colfer has found his share of success with TV shows and movies but his name has also been promoted through his books, specifically The Land of Stories series. The book is children’s fiction and follows the adventure of the two protagonists Conner and Alex. This book has been widely praised by the children and the critics becoming one of the reasons it has spawned three sequels and fourth being An Author’s Odyssey. Not only are this but there rumors that the sixth book is well underway to hit the bookstores somewhere in 2017.
Here’s the cover of the highly anticipated book:
The Land of Stories has gathered significant following since its inception from the first book The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell in 2012. The book was in the New York Times Bestseller List for five weeks and even on top for the two of the five weeks. Also, it was named Best Book of 2012 by Barnes and Nobles.
The new installment in the highly praised book series is sure to excite every child.
“Alex and Conner have traveled into the realms of fairy-tales and classic literature, but An Author’s Odyssey is their first adventure in a world created from their own imaginations,” Colfer tells EW. “Like a screenwriter, Conner has the exciting — and sometimes nerve-racking! — experience of seeing the characters and stories he has created come to life. The series has inspired so many kids around the world to read and I hope this fifth book will encourage readers to write their own stories, too.”
