Product Description

Review

Colfer has a real skill for crafting stories and every chapter was packed with action, emotion and adventure. He is equally skilled at creating memorable characters and has breathed new life into old favourites like Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and Little Bo Peep by giving them interesting story arcs and well-rounded personalities . . . A Grimm Warning is a completely absorbing read that had me hooked from the first page. (The Bookbag)

The perfect mix of adventure, misery, humour and romance . . . pure genius! (The Sunday Mail (Australia))

There is more in Colfer's magic kingdoms than Disney has dreamt of (USA Today)

The third book in Chris Colfer's bestselling series The Land of Stories!

Format: Hardcover
'A Grimm Warning' written by Chris Colfer is the third installment in his 'The Land of Stories' series which introduced twins Alex and Conner Bailey who received for their twelfth birthday book that has been in possession of their family for a long time – a special collection of fairy tales 'The Land of Stories'.

First Alex and then Connor will enter the world described in the book which will be in same time strange and different, on the other hand familiar, full of characters from known tales for children – escaped evil Queen, Goldilocks and the pack of deceased bad wolf. And while the twins embarked on the journey trying to find a way home using "The Wishing Spell", they will encounter many magical creatures and experience a lot of adventures...

Though I don't want to spoil the fun for those people who have not read the previous two installments, in third part of this exciting series - after the adventure with Enchantress who cursed Sleeping Beauty and had kidnapped their mother - twins will discover mysterious clue left by the famous fairy tales writers - Brothers Grimm. This time their mission will be partly in real world, but when the Land of Stories will be put into danger, brother and sister will have to unite with those both good and bad in order to save both worlds...

The author of this series, Chris Colfer, is very versatile man, though it was surprising to me how with each part of his series, I liked more and more his rich and descriptive writing style which allows reader to be easily drawn into the action and become part of the fun and exciting story.

A Grimm Warning is the third installment in The Land Of Stories series by author Chris Colfer.

Colfer is best known for his role as Kurt Hummel in the TV show Glee and is due to play the title role in the new Noel Coward film.

The Land Of Stories tells the story of twins Alex and Conner Bailey who are pulled into their grandmother's book. It tracks their journey through the magical land of fairytale and children's story characters. The telling of stories with a twist will have you revisiting your childhood in a new light and make you wonder why you had not realised this earlier. Colfer has bought a fresh light to old stories that will entrance young and old alike.

This is a great book for all ages, however, the story truly comes alive in the audio books which are narrated by Chris Colfer using an array of colorful voices.

Whilst I haven't completed reading the whole book yet, if the first 2 books are anything to go by I know this is definitely going to be a brilliant read which will leave me wanting more!! Chris Colfer is a genius and his seriously artistic writing in these books allows you not only to picture the whole scene in your mind but leaves you feeling like you're actually watching it all play out in front of you. These books would be brilliant turned into movies - I can only imagine how big that would be!!

Format: Hardcover
The third book in The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer follows twins Alex and Conner Bailey as they lead separate lives at the age of fourteen. Alex in the fairy-tale world and Conner in the normal everyday world. Alex is training to be the next fairy godmother and Conner is leading a semi normal human life. But they're destined to come back together in this book.

Race through Germany, France and London as Conner finds himself needing to pass the Brothers Grimm's warning to all those in the fairy tale world.

This book just shows how Chris Colfer is growing and becoming even more talented. I enjoyed the first two books but found that I enjoyed this book the most! I cannot fault it. A book meant for children ten years younger than me and I loved it.

I found myself drawn to the story, drinking in the vivid imagery that Colfer creates. I found myself drawn to every character and found myself gripping the book tightly in many parts. Whilst the book is serious, Colfer allows us to laugh and enjoy the journey thar all the characters undertake.

And the ending!!! Wow! I screamed when I read it and the proceeded to squeal about the fact that the book was awesome and the fourth one isn't out yet!

Colfer deserves to be a NYT bestselling authors because his books far outshadow his acting and I hope for more from this author/actor.

I recommend this for anyone off all ages, who loves fantasy and fairy-tales.

dont wanna read my review? fine by me. but heres a tip for the readers- there may be a few giveaways.
ok so i rated this a five star- it was a full on standard size novel, a real page turner! there were a few disappointments- such as when alex rejected hher crush and little bow dies of a broken heart! that came out of nowhere! but the bit that ssurprised me most- little bows boyfriend was the baileys dad! i thought he died!!! i was heartbroken at that.
a few warnings; violent scenes, may be tears, expect to be surprised!
overal i gave this book a five star. the odd mishaps added on tension which added on greAT results. READ THIS BOOK. you will experience magic for the first time. thank you.
