I really liked this book Chris Colfer wrote. When I read the last word I wanted the next book in my hand at the moment.Too bad I didn't have the book set. I know Chris stopped at Worlds Collide, so hopefully he will make another one. Anyway back to the book, it was really funny how Red talked and how she was so into Shakespeare. Also something I didn't know was that Rumplestikin was a dwarf. All in all this book was amazing. So thank you world and bye.

Good but iffy for age 8

I enjoyed reading this book with my children but I must say, considering the recommend age of 8 and up, I was a little surprised with some of the content. One topic was when the character Collin referenced not even trying to get to 1st base (which led to questions from y 8 year old that I didn't think appropriate)... The other was regarding the unwed pregnant character during the Princess and the Pea referenced in the story. Not exactly what I'd consider 8 year old topics. Otherwise, this story is engaging, interesting and an overall fun read... I'd just recommend that maybe it's for ages 10 and up rather than 8 and up.
