"You have in your hand a book of stories... They come from a world in which most people ate the food they grew themselves, made their own clothes, went to bed at sunset, got up at sunrise, and lived all their lives in the same village... Not all fairy tales have fairies in them. We use the word to mean any tale in which there are extraordinary characters, like fairies, giants, dwarfs, dragons, magicians, talking animals; extraordinary objects, like glass mountains and enchanted castles; or extraordinary happenings, like a live man being turned to stone or a dead man restored to life." - W. H. Auden
