“Bettelheim argues convincingly that fairy tales provide a unique way for children to come to terms with the dilemmas of their inner lives.” —The Atlantic
 
“A charming book about enchantment, a profound book about fairy tales.” —John Updike, The New York Times Book Review
 
“A splendid achievement, brimming with useful ideas, with insights into how young children read and understand, and most of all overflowing with a realistic optimism and with an experienced and therapeutic good will.” —Harold Bloom, The New York Review of Books
 
“Provocative and persuasive.” —Boston Globe
