What is the order of the Land of Stories book series?
This series has many books, there’s the original series, which is composed of six volumes, and there’s also the prequel and the novels. Now, you may think that the best way to start this series may be to read the prequel first, however, we believe it’s better that you read the original series first, and then, if you want more then you can read its prequel.

As an alternative, you can get this book set that collects the six volumes in the series:
After reading them, you should start with its prequel, known as A tale of Magic, so far it’s a trilogy, but author Chris Colfer hinted that they may be a fourth volume.
To sum up this list of The Land of Story books, there are also companion novels. These are more like picture books, and they are not necessary to follow the plot of the series. However, fans of this tale will enjoy them as well.
The book covers are just gorgeous, they already tell you that this story is going to be memorable, don’t you think?

Do you want more stories with magic? there’s plenty more! but we have 3 great contenders, don’t miss these 3 series:
Our latest recommendation tells the story of Gilly, who is sentenced to three months at quite a peculiar school after being caught stealing. In this place, all the teachers are former villains from the classic tales, as Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother, here you have a list with all the Fairy Tale Reform School books in order.
While not included on the previous list, fans of The Land of Stories book series really enjoy Shanon Messenger’s popular tale, The keeper of the lost cities series, an amazing fun tale with lots of magic as well.
What is this series by Chris Colfer about?
The Land of Stories books tells the story of twins Alex and Conner Bailey, who happen to travel from the real world to a fictional place full of magic in which all the fairy tale characters they know are real.
But this wonderful place is not as cool as it may seem at a first glance, because classic tales are also full of monsters and dangers… so getting back home may not be as easy as they expected.
