Chris Colfer’s Children’s Book, Land Of Stories Debuts At Number One

Chris Colfer isn’t just another pretty gay face: His new children’s book, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell is set to land on top of  The New York Times’ children’s best-seller list on Aug. 4, according to a tweet from the actor-writer.

“#TheLandOfStories is debuting at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller’s list!!!” tweeted Colfer, who also penned the screenplay for the teen comedy Struck by Lightening. “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this. Thank you!!!”

The story, Colfer’s first foray into kid’s lit, is about Alex and her twin brother Conner, who travel to the land of fairy tales and encounter an assortment of witches, trolls and magic creatures.  (Very on target with Grimm and Once Upon a Time on TV and Maleficent coming to the big screen.)

Did Land of Stories get a boost because of Colfer’s TV fame? Sure, but so what? If Madonna, Laura Bush and LeAnn Rimes can write children’s books, so can Kurt Hummel.
