In The Land of Stories, Wishing Spell, twins Alex and Conner receive a heirloom book from their Grandmother, who is usually away travelling the "world" with her older friends. Little do they know the book contains a magical world. When Alex falls through the book, her brother jumps in too and they journey around the magical land. Through meeting a talking frog, the wicked witch, and Cinderella, The Wishing Spell is an amazing book i would recommend to any fantasy-lover.

"I was just thinking," Conner said. "Alice went to Wonderland after she fell into a rabbit hole. Dorothy's whole house was scooped up by a tornado that dropped her off in Oz. The Narnia kids traveled through an old wardrobe… and we ended up in the fairy-tale world by falling through a book."
