Featured book of the week:
The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell
Alex and Conner tossed and turned with thoughts of the Wishing Spell all night, but there was no decision to make. If the journal offered a possible way home, they would have to do anything and everything it instructed them to. They had no choice. They were about to embark on the greatest scavenger hunt of their lives.
Reading level: Grade 2-6
