The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell – Week 1

Alex and Conner have been through a lot of upheaval in their lives over the past year. They take comfort in the stories that their father would tell them, and they take comfort in the memories that they have. But what happens when Grandma gives them an innocent gift!? Their entire lives get turned upside down!

Alex and Conner fall through the pages of their fairy tale book, and into a land that is strange and unknown. They are quick to find out that everything they thought they knew about the fairy tales that they grew up with are wrong. As they begin their journey, they are met by a frog man, whom is quickly nicknamed “Froggy” by Conner. After retreiving some information from Froggy and getting a decent nights sleep on his couch, they feel they are ready to start out on their journey. But they quickly discover that this new world holds more danger and secrets than they were prepared for. What could be so terrible within a land of fairy tales?

Will the strange journal that Froggy gave them help them to get home!?
