Fairy Tales have enchanted people for generations. These stories have long been sources of entertainment and moral education, weaving together elements of fantasy with values. Today, fairy tales are often dismissed as children’s stories; however they have permeated popular culture.

For example, it was always the prince who saved Snow White, Cinderella and all the other princesses. Even if that is less true now, there are still some books that can negatively influence children. So if it is true that some comic books are sexist or violent, it is also true that some of them are, to put it simply, fine.

Carroll uses magic at many points of his story, such as with the Cheshire Cat, the baby that transformed into a pig, human-like playing cards, and talking animals. His use of a secondary world is a very direct and obvious motif, and is the main point of the story line. Fantasy objects are fluent throughout the story as well with cakes that make one grow different sizes, potions that do this as well.
