The Fairy Tale Stories

The Fairy Tale Stories

Fairy tales are imaginary stories. They do not exactly mean “there are fairies” but some kids and even adults associate these stories with magic, a big triumph of the characters, beautiful fairies, and life wonders. Sometimes they could be some fables and would involve animal and nature stories. The classification is huge for different cultures.

Let us peep into Storyland:

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves by the Grimm Brothers
The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde
Snow White and Rose Red by the Grimm Brothers

1. Alice in Wonderland is a famous fairy tale. It was even filmed and shown this 2010.

This girl Alice dreams of going into another land through a hole. In Wonderland she meets talking cats , rabbits, a caterpillar and other animals. In Wonderland, everything comes to be awesome: the beautiful garden, the odd funny characters, magic beyond life and where you eat something there will be changes in sizes. Alice becomes bigger and smaller just by eating cake and drinking some potion. The queen of hearts is a fascinating character, as well.

Johnny Depp starrs in the movie as the “Madhatter.”

2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

This story gives the idea of the wicked witch, the symbolic red apple, and the kind seven dwarves who are Snow White’s best of friends. From the magic mirror that’s full of magic and which shows the vanity of the stepmother, poor Snow White becomes part of the dwarf family. The dwarves are not-good looking creatures but their hearts are better than those people who deceive using beauty and influence.

“Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest one of all?”

Kids learn from the genuine love of the prince and the kindness of the dwarves.

3. The Selfish Giant

The idea of this story inculcates to children what Jesus really is, what God can be. How meek and kind, he can be as a boy. The selfish giant and his beautiful garden is enliven - the time the giant becomes a friend of the children. The selfish giant changes to be generous upon knowing the humble Christ. This creates wonder especially when the giant dies with a smile on his face. What’s God like? That even the giants and kings bow to him ?

4. Snow White and Rose Red

Snow White and Rose Red are sisters brought up by their mother to be good daughters/children.

When a bear knocks at their door, they help the bear which turned into a handsome prince. Later the prince marries Snow White, and Rose Red marries the prince’s brother. The two girls help the bear without waiting for any reward; but usually “Kindness reaps its fruits,” and “Goodness gets its rewards.”
