''The Land of Stories'' is described by Creator/ChrisColfer (yes, ''[[Series/{{Glee}} that]]'' Chris Colfer) as a "modern day fairytale," following twins Alex and Conner Bailey as they fall from the real world into a world full of fairytales they have only ever read about before. But after run-ins with trolls, goblins, wolves, and witches, getting home might be more difficult than they previously thought. The series currently has four entries: ''The Wishing Spell'', ''The Enchantress Returns'', ''A Grimm Warning'', and ''Beyond the Kingdoms''.
