The Land of Stories Book 5 by Chris Colfer (Little, Brown, $19.99; ISBN 978-0-316-38329-5). 500,000 copies.

Very impressive that the initial hardback printing for LOS 5 is half a million.

^Lol, yes, Chris seems to have had some fun with mixing old fashioned fairytales with science fiction and superhero's.  Razz




  link to EW article



Spoiler:
"Alex and Conner have traveled into the realms of fairy-tales and classic literature, but An Author’s Odyssey is their first adventure in a world created from their own imaginations. Like a screenwriter, Conner has the exciting — and sometimes nerve-racking! — experience of seeing the characters and stories he has created come to life. The series has inspired so many kids around the world to read and I hope this fifth book will encourage readers to write their own stories, too."
Chris Colfer on An Author’s Odyssey, the fifth book in his The Land of Stories series

i love this evolution from classic fairy tales to mummified superhero robots! i bet there will be aliens eventually in this series. I mean, why not? maybe that bug like creature on the lower left corner is indeed an alien. what's that women robot on the lower right corner?

Chris has often said that the twins are alternate sides of himself, so I'm hardly surprised Conner is a writer.

The black cover is gorgeous.

And now we will see how his very own characters fit among the fairytale characters.

Very late to the party, but yeah! I totally love this cover, is so mature in comparison from the first one. This story has evolved so much, that I can't wait to read the 5th book. Razz

I ordered my book a couple of weeks ago and now just have to wait for a text when it comes in for me to pick up after it comes out on it's initial release. Smile 

I will order the other two later one after I get this one.

So, glad I did not have to make a deposit and that even in hardback it is not expensive to for me to buy.

^IIRC that drawing of Trolbella was in book 3, right?  unsure 


This is a drawing from Chris for the 5th book (behind a spoilerbar) :
Spoiler:

hrhchriscolfer One day, this will make sense… #TLOS5surprise

And Chris' reply to someone asking him about the drawing:





When I read the ending of TLoS4 I already was excited about the twins going into Conner's stories to find help, and after seeing the cover and ^this drawing of TLoS5 I'm getting even more excited.    hiphopa

Hot books for summer:

6. The Land of Stories: An Author's Odyssey by Chris Colfer (Little, Brown, fiction, on sale July 12)

What it’s about: In the fifth book in a series for young readers, Alex and Conner race to put an end to the Masked Man’s reign of terror.

Why it’s hot: The young actor's tales about twins who are teleported into the world of fairy tales all have been best sellers, and Beyond the Kingdoms hit No. 10 on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list last year.
