"A Villain is just a victim whose story hasn't been told." -The evil queen. Most inspirational quote ever.
"Alex imagined what it would be like to be a character in her own fairy tale: the forests she'd run through, the castles she'd live in, and the creatures she'd befriend."
"I was just thinking," Conner said. "Alice went to Wonderland after she fell into a rabbit hole. Dorothy's whole house was scooped up by a tornado that dropped her off in Oz. The Narnia kids traveled through an old wardrobe… and we ended up in the fairy-tale world by falling through a book."
"What do you think the moral of little red ridding hood is her mother should of mailed the basket?"
