"When production wrapped, I wasn’t ready to say good-bye to these characters,” Chris says in Little Brown Books’s release about the novel. “I felt the best way to tell Carson’s story was through his critical eyes in a journal.” He calls the new book a "a story about adolescence, told through the eyes of a teenager, for other teenagers.”
With any luck, we’re expecting another smash hit. The Land of Stories made it to #1 onThe New York Times bestsellers list for children’s chapter books this week. Congrats to Chris on succeeding at... well, pretty much every single thing possible under the sun.
