Tangled

My daughter picked up the book Tangled adapted by Christine Peymani based on the movie from the library.

“I’ve been dreaming about  them (magic lanterns) my entire life!  Haven’t you ever had a dream?” Rapunzel asks.

“I had a dream once,” a thug said.

Dreams is what motivates most of us I think.  For little kids, these are extremely important.  They live in their own little worlds and it’s important they believe anything is possible.

Later on:

“What if everything is as I have dreamed it to be?  What do I do then?” asks Rapunzel.

“You get to go find a new dream,” Flynn told her.

I LOVED this.  Even when our dreams are fulfilled, there are other ones out there to pursue.

Finally:  “Don’t leave me,” Rapunzel says to Flynn who’s dying “I can’t do this without you.”

“You were my new dream,” Flynn replies.

“And you were mine,” Rapunzel says.

Great stuff.  Stuff of fairy tales and movies.  I don’t think I need to expound on this.

I couldn’t put the book down.  I’m assuming the movie is just as good.
