Fairy tales are not always about fairies, though they are always full of strange and wonderful happenings.

Most often fairy tales are about ordinary people - men and women, boys and girls - who somehow get caught up in magical events. Fairies may or may not appear, to either help or hinder them. Some of the best-known fairy tales are Little Red Riding Hood, Snow-White, and Puss-in-Boots and as you probably know, fairies do not appear in any of them, though magic certainly does!
