As the name suggests, this book is a well-versed combination of truth and fantasy. Our planet which is known as a place full of mystery is also deeply embedded with various tales attached to it. This book is full of concepts and history which is told to the characters and the kids who are growing up to be the future of this planet. The book also teaches the readers about moral and cultural aspects. Takouhi through the plot teaches the readers about the contemporary issues. The story is full of messages which play a great role in educating both the children and the grown-ups. The science and technology which explains that our planet is made of many compounds and there are oceans and seas, hills and mountains, water and life, is still not fully explored. Even though our planet is not the only planet in the world, still as we inhabit this planet and the human life exists only here, therefore there are many stories attached with the name of our planet. This book consists of seventy-six pages. It has ten chapters. Each chapter is based on a unique story in itself. The writer has weaved the story around Egypt, Africa, and Siberia. The story revolves around a young girl and how she interacts with everyone around her. Be it her mother, her pets or her friends, the young girl named, Lora, is full of life, love, and happiness. The story is full of messages even though at times it feels like we are living a life of a kid. The writer brings out the inner kid which is hiding somewhere in all of us. The use of imagery is so prominent that with each passing word, the scene gets clear and clear in the reader

“There is a big difference in whether or not one has a child grow up with fairy tales. The soul-stirring nature of fairy-tale pictures becomes evident only later on. If fairy tales have not been given, this shows itself in later years as weariness of life and boredom. Indeed, it even comes to expression physically; fairy tales can help counter illnesses. What is absorbed little by little by means of fairy tales emerges subsequently as joy in life, in the meaning of life—it comes to light in the ability to cope with life, even into old age. Children must experience the power inherent in fairy tales while young, when they can still do so. Whoever is incapable of living with ideas that have no reality for the physical plane ‘dies’ for the spiritual world.”—Rudolf Steiner

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. For this new edition, the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date.
