Violet and Victor work together to write a truly enchanted tale!

Violet is determined to write the most fabulous fairy tale that has ever been imagined! Her twin, Victor, is not in the mood for make-believe.

"I was born in a castle!" Violet says.
"You were born in a hospital," Victor replies.

But when an evil witch arrives in Violet's story, will Victor help write an ending that saves the day? Join the twins on an adventure through Fairy Tale Kingdom as they celebrate the joy of storytelling and reading!
