  • 4. IntRo THIS BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED AS AN ADvENTuRE book in mind. One that you could flip through and read whichever storyline for whichever particular character you cared for. However, after revaluating my original concept of change through travel, it seemed best to keep this book in the tradition of maps. This book was based off of a map of New York City. This only seemed fitting considering that the story takes place in New York. As you travel though the different chapters, you will notice that the text also changes it’s position depending on where the story takes place. The five different quadrants are: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island. Manhatten represents Snow White’s main character storyline, Brooklyn features Bluebeard and Boy Blue, Queens for Prince Charming and Pinnochio , The Bronx, Bigby and The Adversary, and Staten Island for Animal Farm.
