do Grimm brothers had sisters ?
Spoiler:
Wiki states that their parents had 9 children, so probably yes. But I don't think the chapter's title refers to any 'real' (as in historical) sisters of the brothers Grimm. My guess is they're more sisters to the brothers Grimm in spirit, as in also writing and/or collecting fairytales, but I could be wrong of course.

Or there's some reverse universe thing going on in the book, lol. Who knows? saispa
(I love little mysteries like this: I wonder where Chris' imagination will take us this time.)


Spoiler:
I hope that poor fairy's skeleton that's pinned down is not Tinkerbell, though. :(

Well so it is, even a few days after the tour announcement. Nice Smile .

ETA: I just picked up my younger kids from school. One of the teachers holding the door open had a well-worn library copy of The Enchantress Returns in her hand. I didn't get a chance to ask her about it, but lol to those who believe these books aren't popular in schools or amongst the age ranges they're written for. I know I've bought  several classroom copies at the Scholastic book fairs for teachers who've requested them, but it just made me happy to see a teacher with one today Smile .

excerpt/quote:

Hans looked around the promenade to make sure only the Fairy Godmother could hear what he was about to say. “Maybe you won’t have to create anything” he said. “What if every story ever told was just a realm waiting to be discovered? Perhaps happiness isn’t the only thing you were meant to provide keys for.”  - Prologue, The Land Of Stories, Beyond The Kingdoms

^You and me both. fanny2 
(and probably a bunch of other people, lol)

I reblogged the Table of Content with my eyes practically closed: I don't want to spoil myself that much (I always skip over the Table of Content in a real book as well: I want to be surprised while I'm reading the story).
But I caught that bit of information too by accident.


Only less than a month before the real reading can begin! danse3

So sweet. He's been very fortunate to have worked with some of the great remaining legends of TV and film.

I see Will gets first billing this time around in the family and friends section. I'm sure the tinhatters are rabidly photoshopping it out as we speak tonguue .

The tinhatters are going to have an awfully hard time trying to squeeze Darren's name in place of Will's because by putting Will first, they really didn't leave any space. coool

Admittedly sniffled when I read the tribute to Polly.

Agree 100% about the tinhatters
I got teary eyed reading the tribute to Polly.

I am pissed. No mention of Brian and Cooper? All this loyalty day in and day out, plus assistance in writing (we have instagram proofs) get them nothing in return? dryy

Excellent! It's at #7 on B&N's top 100 list today. Chris' appearance with Jimmy Fallon was a nice promotional boost apparently Smile .
