Sam's Fairytale Book was first seen when Hal was reading her a bedtime story when she was eight. Hal tells his daughter that the book contains something very important that she'll need later in life. Eight years later, Sam, angry with how humiliated she was at school, threw the book across her "bedroom" (which was really the attic). Then Sam picked up the book and found Hal's will in it. The fairytale book really did contain something important!
