    The main reason I am writing this review here is because I am tired of hearing only positive things about this book I find it misleading and I know that there are many other better written stories for our readers Chris Colfer is an actor on the television show Glee, and this book reads like a long drawn out screenplay Descriptions are either nonexistent or so basic that my students could paint a far better image When describing a cavalcade of knights arriving in front the twins, Colfer descr The main reason I am writing this review here is because I am tired of hearing only positive things about this book I find it misleading and I know that there are many other better written stories for our readers Chris Colfer is an actor on the television show Glee, and this book reads like a long drawn out screenplay Descriptions are either nonexistent or so basic that my students could paint a far better image When describing a cavalcade of knights arriving in front the twins, Colfer describes them only by saying...
