A Tale of Magic is the 1st book in a new series written by Chris Colfer. Even though it’s a prequel to his award winning Land of Stories series, readers do not need to be familiar with the characters in the first series.

Chris’s books are written with middle grade readers in mind; however, I think “children” of all ages will enjoy them and immediately feel love for the characters. I adored the protagonist Brystal; she’s spunky and determined to not take the path her parents have deemed necessary

This was an absolutely wonderful read! It is middle-grade fantasy, so I wouldn't classify it as young adult, considering that a great deal of new YA books deal with quite mature themes. However, this story is a phenomenal, fun read for all ages! This was a fun and easy read, I have loved 'The Land of Stories' series and this was a great spin off. I can't wait to read more by Chris Colfer.

THIS BOOK IS DELIGHTFUL AND I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I read it a few months ago and couldn’t put it down - I read it in a few hours! It was so great, and I loved Brystal’s adventures at the Academy and with Madame Weatherberry. I can’t wait until the second book comes out! :) I want to read more!!
