Glee star Chris Colfer has certainly kept busy since the musical TV show ended earlier this year. The fourth book in his New York Times best-selling series, The Land of Stories, comes out Tuesday, and, in addition to writing the books, Colfer also narrates the audiobook.

In The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms, twins Alex and Conner Bailey round up a group of pals—Goldilocks, Jack, Red Riding Hood, Mother Goose and her gander, Lester—and travel across the Land of Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland to catch up to the fugitive Masked Man. 

Listen to our exclusive clip of Colfer reading from Chapter 1, below:
