Creative Kid Thursday! The Land of Stories: An Author’s Odyssey as reviewed by Olivia and Oscar!

4 Aug

Hi Everyone! Today, I am featuring two kid book reviewers, who blog at Kidbookreviewer.com. The book they are reviewing is called “An Author’s Odyssey”, and is the fifth book in “The Land of Stories” series, written by Chris Colfer.

I’ll hand over the reigns to them now!

Hey there! We’re Olivia (12) and Oscar (9), brother and sister, and we both have a giant love of books. We started our book review blog about a year ago because we found we both loved passionately talking about books, and wanted to share that love with young kids all over the world. Since then, we’ve also interviewed a multitude of our favorite authors. Besides reading, reviewing books, and interviewing authors, we love writing, traveling, swimming, and hanging out with our family and friends.

61nae8ovpsl-sx337-bo1-204-203-200_origRating: High Five! [Note from Erik, see their rating system HERE!]

Who We’d Recommend to: Fans of Peter and the Starcatchers, fractured fairy tales, and the Whatever After series.

Synopsis (from Amazon):
In the highly anticipated continuation of the Land of Stories series, Conner learns that the only place to fight the Masked Man’s literary army is inside his own short stories! 

When the twins and their friends enter worlds crafted from Conner’s imagination, finding allies no one else could have ever dreamed of, the race begins to put an end to the Masked Man’s reign of terror. Can the twins finally restore peace in the fairy tale world?


 

Olivia’s Review; I’ve eagerly anticipated this next installment in the Land of Stories, and it hasn’t disappointed! The characters were all spot-on, and I loved getting to see Connor’s imagination through his stories and how they reflected the Bailey twins’s adventures. The writing was humorous and fast-paced – there was never a slow moment in the story. The plot was exciting and suspenseful, a perfect read for kids of all ages. I fell in love with this series a while ago and am thrilled that there will, indeed, be another book in the series after this one. Overall, an exciting, action-packed, super creative, funny, clever fifth installment to the Land of Stories!

Oscar’s Review: I really loved this book. In every chapter when you thought something was going well, the ship would sink and everything would be submerged and the story would be shaken. I really don’t have that much to say about this book because I love it so much, but I do have one thing: most who read this book will love it as they’ve loved, in turn, the first, second, third, and fourth books in the series. There was also a HUGE, interesting, and unexpected twist that really shook up the story and increased the suspense and excitement levels by a tenfold. I think this book would really appeal to reluctant readers because it is an action-packed, fast-paced fantasy story that pulls you into the book from the start.

 

Thank you very much Olivia and Oscar for reviewing this book! Don’t forget to check out their blog HERE!
