Question: Is Alice In Wonderland A Fairy Tale!? !?
Would you consider it a Fairy Tale!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
No, not really!. It's a fantasy!.

The elements of a fairy tale are

* Special beginning and/or ending words - Once upon a time!.!.!.and they lived happily ever after!.
* Good character
* Evil character
* Royalty and/or a castle usually present
* Magic happens
* Problem and a Solution
* Things often happen in "threes" or "sevens"

But the main thing about a fairy tale is that it appears first in oral tradition!. In other words, the story was told and re-told for generations before anyone wrote it down!. Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland "from scratch"!. It isn't based on any pre-existing oral story!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
