But Alice does learn as she goes through Wonderland and then the Looking-Glass world.

What about ghost stories, or superhero stories, or utopias, or satires, or stories in which animals are given thoughts and intelligible voices?

Rightly famous history of childhood, in which Ariès puts forward his thesis that childhood (as we currently understand it in the early 21st century) did not exist in medieval Europe. Carroll mocks the cautionary tale: the ‘nice little histories’ Alice has read, ‘about children who had got burnt, and eaten up by wild beasts and other unpleasant things, all because they WOULD not remember the simple rules their friends had taught them: such as, that a red-hot poker will burn you if your hold it too long; and that if you cut your finger VERY deeply with a knife, it usually bleeds’. Dickens, in his ‘Frauds on the Fairies’, wrote that ‘In an utilitarian age, of all other times, it is a matter of grave importance that Fairy tales should be respected’.

George MacDonald’s At the Back of the North Wind (1871) is another hybrid: part fairytale, part social realism, and part religious allegory. Just A Dream This story is about a little boy who learns a lesson. And it is difficult to think of a more preachy book than Charles Kingsley’s The Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby (1863), one of the most celebrated of all children’s fantasies but also including substantial amounts of moralising and a large dose of social realism in its attack on child chimney sweeps.
