fantasy and fairy tales

Fantasy fiction is defined as "a genre of imaginative fiction involving magic and adventure, especially in a setting other than the real world."

"Fairy tales are a part of the world’s vast common stock of stories, literally folktales. Fairy tales have, however, their own special quality and not all folk tales are fairy tales. The essence of a fairy tale is a story of growing up, maturation, usually with a strong element of wish-fulfillment by way of fantasy, and normally with a happy ending."
