Series is getting a bit thin

Not sure why my son and I have gotten a bit tired with this series, when other things from this age group still delight. The characters seem a bit unlikeable in this installment, and despite the narrator/author being an actor, his is not my favorite voice to listen to. Still, if your child likes this series, there's nothing particularly objectionable here. My son liked it more than I did.

I love it so much and it’s just fun to see the cool people in my little imagination come to life .

LGBTQ+ rocks and it is the best I love it so much that they put it in their stories with mother goose marching in a parade for LGBTQ+

Delightful and Fun

Adventures from the Land of Stories: Mother Goose Diaries and Queen Red Riding Hood’s Guide to Royalty is enjoyable and so much fun. Queen Red Riding Hood writes a book about how to be royal and provides everything from her tale from how she became queen, politics, quest for love and the ups and downs she faces. Queen Red’s guide to royalty is exactly what I imagined from this annoying, self-centered but fun character. Mother Goose Diaries is a collection of her many adventures, untold stories and buried secrets of her very long life. Mother Goose has been a fun character to read about. I just love her. Overall Adventures from the Land of Stories was very enjoyable. I liked it. Chris Colfer is always the best when narrating his work. He brings such life to the stories and his character. I hope he continues.
