   Fun, Witty Book Series
It's a tween who is absolutely in love with this series. Great idea for anyone who enjoys fantasy-type books. We are quite careful to make sure content is age appropriate for our tween and have found these books to entertain without worrying about introducing subjects too adult at this point, said Blair. The second story follows a brother and sister who find themselves trapped inside a fairy tale land and coming into contact with real life story book characters they grew up reading. Both are witty books and hard to put down. Our intrepid reader completes them within 24 hours of receiving them.
   Dem cliff hangers though
Colfer is a master at making you chew your fingernails all year until the next book comes out, and then making you want to smack your head into your book. It was amazing, I was up all night reading. The book get fairly scary at some parts, but always comes back with its charm.
I really enjoyed this book, Morgenthau said. It was a great adventure, mystery, and humor all rolled into one. As soon as I got it, I couldn't stop reading. Overall, I would say that this was an AMAZING book.
   Excellent! The only negative is that we have to wait so long for the next one!
My children and I have read and enjoyed all of the books. Chris Colfer is a writer who has a knack for creating witty, inventive and fun characters. We have also listened to all of the audio books together, and they are equally great.
   My son really likes the series
My son is 12 and he wanted to read this book, there is a series and he has already read the other books in the series, his mom said. The CEO of NatSemi said he will order the next one "as soon as it is available." And, apparently, twins are not the only people who want to read this series. Though he didn't read the entire book, I think he has at least read the first one. As long as they are reading, I'm happy, Kleimann said.
The second book in the series, "Let Me In," is also available. It is so creative and imaginative, with comedy and adventure, danger and drama, and magic, said De Niro. The second book, "The Fifth," picks up right where the first left off. The entire world that Rowling has created is so original, complex, and complete, it feels real. I enjoyed every second of it, said Barbara Comstock, senior vice president of marketing for Scholastic. One of the best things about this series is that each book is just as good as the next! A new study by the University of Michigan found that 3 percent of Catholics believe in God's law.
One of the best books I've ever read. I'm thrilled there will be a sequel, and I hope there will be a next book in the series. Even though the books are over five years, Colfer is an incredible writer. It's amazing and every twist and turn keeps you on the edge of your seat.
   My 9-year old granddaughter is loving this series!
My granddaughter is reading her teacher's classroom copies of the "Harry Potter" series. She asked for copies of the first book, "The Snow Lady's", and was thrilled to get them.
   The series developed my daughter into a reader!
My 10 year old LOVES the show. She started reading them when she was 9 and kept on doing so until she was 12. In her first book, "The Fifth Estate," Elizabeth Warren wrote, "There was a time when I felt like I was on a mission." This series has made her excited to read, even though she has only just begun. Because she loves the books so much, her cousins are now reading them and have developed an excitement for reading as well! She is a very imaginative girl who has a very good eye for detail, Hughes said.
   Land of Stories
I know this series is popular with kids, but it did nothing for me. The other day I received a letter from the publisher, in which the writer said: "This particular copy was in such poor shape and condition that I had to send it back." Only a few copies are listed for sale.
