Book: "The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell," by Chris Colfer
Would you recommend this book to a friend?
Yes. Once you get into the book, it gets really funny and really interesting. It's about a boy and a girl. They're twins ... They jumped inside of a fairy tale book and got into this fairy tale land. They made friends with Goldilocks, Jack from "Jack in the Beanstalk," all the queens like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella.
Do you read a lot?
I read for 30 to 45 minutes at home and at school every day.
Do you think it's important for kids to read?
Yes, because if they don't read, they won't get enough education. Maybe they're on electronics all the time.
