Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread
Vendikarr, I thought some of the backstories were in the book but Pinocchio was a kid who couldn't realistically be expected to know the backstory. Of course, the sudden importation of realistic standards about what a character could be expected to know in-universe doesn't necessarily apply to a fantasy. That's an SF thing. So, you may be right.
The only other logical option is that the book was a construct of Mr. Gold, as part of his long term plan to have Emma break the curse. Someone had to get her to Storybrook, and who better than her son.
