Fairy Tales were first defined in the 17th century. A fairy tale is a short story that features fantasy characters such as fairies, goblins, elves, etc. Often fairy tales include moral lessons where good and bad is portrayed. The older fairy tales were intended for adults and also kids, but today they are written mostly for children. Charles Perrault was the first significant person to write fairy tales in his “Mother Goose” collection, such as “Sleeping Beauty” for example.
