A counter research dedicated to the study of children’ s literature remarked “ In many ways children's literature and fairy tale stories are on odd pairing, children's books and especially picture books, after all, are supposed to be child friendly, whereas many fairy tales, including many of the ones that can be found here, are not exactly child friendly” .      A counter research dedicated to the study of children’ s literature remarked “ In many ways children's literature and fairy tale stories are on odd pairing, children's books and especially picture books, after all, are supposed to be child friendly, whereas many fairy tales, including many of the ones that can be found here, are not exactly child friendly” .  The concepts of beauty, an ugly, good, bad, handsome prince and cruel witches, impostors, dark jungles etc have created a typical culture in thought and behaviour of children.   No doubt Cinderella creates an image of beautiful, dainty, naï ve  Girls.
