A Grimm WarningEdit


  • The name "Conner" is an Irish name meaning "lover of hounds." and in book two he was probably the excitement of getting a dog until he found out in was sir Lampton as a dog.
  • Connor is most likely the younger twin.
  • Trollbella has an obsessive crush on him.
  • Trollbella calls him "Butterboy" now she calls him "Butter-man"
  • Connor has a crush on a schoolmate named "Bree"
  • Conner is a nephew to the masked man.
  • Conner is also a good writer, funny and adventurous


Maybe if his parents had kept an eye on him, he wouldn’t have been eaten. I think the story is trying to tell us to keep an eye on our kids, especially if they’re pathological liars.

Why do fairies always just show up and do nice things for people they don’t know?
―Conner Bailey, The Wishing Spell

I was just thinking, 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. I’m just saying, it’s kind of lame compared to the others.
