“You know,” Mother Goose continued, “Leonardo da Vinci and I had a bit of a fling.”

Alex gasped. “I don’t believe you! Now you’re making things up!”

Mother Goose rolled her eyes and looked directly into Alex’s, serious as can be. “Why do you think he tried building that flying machine? He was trying to keep up with me and Lester. Hey, Lester, tell these kids I dated Leonardo! They don’t believe me!”

Lester appeared at the kitchen window. He nodded, confirming the news for the twins. They were astonished.

“Of course, I didn’t go by Mother Goose back then,” she said. “My code name was Mona Lisa.”

“You’re the Mona Lisa? ” Conner asked.

“The famous painting?” Alex asked.

“Why do teenagers always think people are lying to them? I’ve got no reason to be dishonest with you,” Mother Goose told them. “Leo, as I used to call him, made me laugh. But that’s apparent in my portrait.”


“Why is she hugging a book?” a popular girl said to her snooty pack on one occasion.

“Maybe she’s taking it to homecoming!” another girl said, and they all laughed at Alex’s expense.

Alex was tempted to yell, “Hey! My grandmother is Cinderella’s fairy godmother, and as soon as she teaches me magic I’m gonna turn you into the lip gloss you wear too much of!” But she kept these thoughts to herself.


“We had the Dragon Age, the Age of Magic, and we’re currently in the Golden Age. Well, it used to be the Golden Age until all this drama happened.”

“The Dragon Age?” Conner asked excitedly. “You mean there were dragons in the fairy-tale world?”

“Tons of them,” Mother Goose said. “It was a mess! Disasters and barbecues left and right! They’re extinct now, kind of like your dinosaurs.”

“Did you ever see one?” Conner asked.

“I used to wrestle them, long before I took up magic and storytelling,” Mother Goose said with a boastful smile.

Conner squinted at her. “Are you pulling my leg?” he asked.

Mother Goose rolled up her sleeve and showed Conner a large burn mark on her forearm. “This isn’t from cooking, kid,” she said.

The Enchantress looked to the floor with a snide expression. “People only love you as long as they’re getting something out of you, but the minute you say something they don’t want to hear or do something they don’t want to see, all the admiration drains from their hearts.”


At lunch she went to one of her favorite places in her world: the school library.


Froggy hopped to the other side of the library and returned with a book. Alex recognized the title and instantly knew what Froggy was getting at.

“We’ll travel by balloon!” Froggy said excitedly. “Just like the travelers did in Around the World in 80 Days! I have to admit, I’ve been waiting for a situation to arise that offered an excuse to build something like it since I read the book.”


Goldilocks was sad to hear it. “I was all those things once,” she said. “But after being on the run I’ve learned a life spent creating enemies isn’t worth leading. Having allies is the best advantage in the world. Jealousy is just a reminder of the frustrations you have with yourself. Who has time to only concentrate on that?”


People are not born heroes or villains; they’re created by the people around them.


Rumpelstiltskin was serving his one hundred and twenty-seventh year behind bars. He was a very small man with large baggy eyes, a button nose, and short hair that clung to his head like a helmet. He wore a large collared shirt, tight pants on his tiny legs, and pointed red shoes that jingled when he walked.

(…) anyone can have a once-upon-a-time or a happily-ever-after, but it's the journey between that makes the story worth telling.
