The great child psychologist gives us a brilliant and moving revelation of the enormous and irreplaceable value of fairy tales- how they educate, support, and liberate the emotions of children. From fairy tale versus myth, the three little pigs: pleasure principle versus reality principle.. the childs need for magic, the importance of externalization. The best part of this book is the study, history and various versions (including the original gory versions, discussed in detail) of the most famous fairy tales such as Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Snow White, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and The Sleeping Beauty.
