Overview

Fairy tales are just the beginning.

The Masked Man is on the loose in the Land of Stories, and it's up to Alex and Conner Bailey to stop him...except Alex has been thrown off the Fairy Council, and no one will believe they're in danger.

With only the help of the ragtag group of Goldilocks, Jack, Red Riding Hood, and Mother Goose and her gander, Lester, the Bailey twins discover the Masked Man's secret scheme: He possesses a powerful magic potion that turns every book it touches into a portal, and he is recruiting an army of literature's greatest villains!

So begins a race through the magical Land of Oz, the fantastical world of Neverland, the madness of Wonderland, and beyond. Can Alex and Conner catch up to the Masked Man, or will they be one step behind until it's too late?

Fairy tales and classic stories collide in the fourth adventure in the bestselling Land of Stories series as the twins travel beyond the kingdoms!

This is honestly a great book! I know some people can't read it because of the whole "preorder" thing. It did that to me, too, but luckily i know how to fix it! All I did was archive my book, then i unarchived it. To archive, go to the book that still says preorder. Next to that word is archive. Press that button and you will archive it. To unarchive, go to your library and go to where you can choose categories for your library. There you will find an archive category. Press that button and you will see all of the items you have archived. Press the book you want to unarchive. There will be one last question seeing if you really want to unarchive. Press yes. For further information, read your nook guide, as that is included with your actual nook purchase. If this does not help, i truly apologize. I have done the best i can to help you. This book is a must read! I believe Alex, Conner, Bree emmerich and all other characters are better than ever!!!!!!

I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The last book ended with a cliff hanger. I tried to figure out how the mask man was the twin's dad, but it's hard to find a possible explanation for it. Just can't wait until it finally comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

OK I am so happy that the maskman is not there dad and Alex found someone for her. But it was so hard to finish reading the book cause Alex had to leave her just found happiness and go save her family. I guess that it was really hard for her but it was still really noble that she put her family first. I totally cheer her on in life because of that. Go Alex!!! But I hope in the next book she gets to go back to him. But over all it was so twisty and unppredictable! I think your a great author Cris! DO NOT LET ANYONE GET IN YOUR WAY IN LIFE!

I loved this book almost as much as the first three. I found this one especially humorous and just plain awesome. I got spoilers for it, but I still read it and loved it so much! My favorite scenes are:<p>1) The Goldilocks moments where she just gets plain emotional.<p>2) The secret organ room.<p>3) The two times Colfer took humorous jabs at France.<p>4) Each time they arrive in a new place. Especially Oz, when Red was completely unflattered.<p>5) All the scenes with yelling, because it was just unnecessary in some of the scenes.<p>6) When Conner realizes they're in Robin Hood, and Tin Woodman thinks Robin and Red are siblings.<p>7) When Emmerich accepts the charges for the phone call, even though he doesn't understand accepting charges yet.<p>More of my favorites, but now my favorite lines, either quoted by someone, or used to tell the story:<p>1) Red had their undivided attention deficit disorder.<p>2) Gosh, it's like Valentine's Day threw up in here.<p>Okay. I have no more favorite lines or scenes. But Blubo's illustration was adorable. I loved the Lost Boys and Sisters Grimm. I just wish Bree and Emmerich could star in more moments.

I absolutly,positivly love this book and the series!!! So many great adventures take place during the stories and it never gets old. In the first book, alex and conner fall into a book! Who does that??? In the second one, the bailey twins fight an evil entantress who is absolutly out of her mind!! In the thierd book they fight an armie that wants to take over the world and they fight there own uncle to the death!!!their uncle! I repeat, the Ir own uncle to the DEATH!!!!! IN THIS BOOK( THE 4TH BOOK) THE BAILY TWINS THINK EVERYTHING IS PEACHES AND CREAM, MILK AND COOKIES....BUT NOOOOOO, IT HAS TO KEEP GOING ON AND ON AND ON! BUTTtt, it was great and i am calm now, but as i was saying this book is when the uncle comes back and actually has a gang of story tail violins as an army. The best part is that this one leaves you with a cliff hange... CLIFF HANGER!!! THANKS AGAIN CHRIS COLFER, NOW IM GETTING CURIUSE, BUTTt, thank you chris because now there will be another book of the land of stories and all your books are so great and i am glad that gt to read about alex and conner bailys awsome stories one more time!!!! Pleaseeee right more land of story books after this because all of you books( including the cliffhanger :) are great. I love this book and please read it if yoy have not, better yet... read all of them and i hope everyone is as excited about the5th book coming out as i am!!!!!!! :) :) :) :)
