The Land of Stories

Glee star, Chris Colfer has recently signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books, to publish his original adventure series “The Land of Stories”. The books are targeted towards young readers aged 8 through 12, and will tell the story of twins Alex and Connor Bailey as they face a modern world laced with fairy-tales.


Little, Brown and Company are the publishers behind mega-hit tween books like the Twilight Saga, so this is a pretty big deal for Chris!

"When I was 10-years-old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance," Colfer says. "This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I'm excited and nervous to share it."

This is not Chris’ first venture geared towards kids; in fact, he has been busy writing the script for the Disney Channel pilot, “The Little Leftover Witch”. He has additionally scripted an independent feature film; a coming-of-age comedy, where he will make his big screen debut.

"Chris is a remarkable talent whose writing combines all the qualities kids love -- memorable characters, heart pounding adventure, in a setting filled with wonder, intrigue and enchantment," Little, Brown senior vp and publisher says of Colfer.

As if singing, dancing and acting for Glee does not keep the Emmy Award nominee busy enough! Looks like Chris Colfer is one busy-bee, but we have faith in him! Can’t wait to see what he has in store for us and the kids.
