Alex and Conner Bailey’s world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairy tales.

Alex and Connor fight some of fairy-tales’ most iconic villains, meet courageous heroes, and uncover secrets long buried in the Land of Stories.
