Tom Trueheart wants to be an adventurer like his six older brothers. They're all employed by the "Story Bureau" to take the lead in any number of thrilling tales - tales which mean they have to rescue red-hooded young ladies or climb outlandishly large beanstalks. Each story is started off by the "Story Bureau" and it's up to the adventurer to make of the story what he will. But this time something's gone wrong - none of the stories are being finished and none of the Trueheart brothers have returned home. Now Tom will get his chance to be a hero - he must set off to the Land of Stories and find out what has happened to his brothers and bring them back.

The Trueheart clan has seven sons, six of whom are often called on to enter the Land of Stories and bring stories to an exciting conclusion. Tom, the youngest, and the only one not named Jack, worries that he lacks the bravery to carry on the family's tradition of bringing exciting exploits and happily-ever-after endings to the Land of Stories. Ian Beck has woven several well-known fairy tales into this novel, putting a new spin on some of our best-loved stories. John Curless narrates with flair, humor, and excitement. His smooth transitions from adventure to adventure and his facility with accents will keep listeners engaged in identifying the source tales.
