"The above is the entire problem. Fairy tales and stories are great but the TRUTH about the REAL WORLD should never be seen as DULL!"

Spot on. Children should be exposed to just how amazing and wonderful the real world is. My son would much rather read his books about space - than the fairytale stories he has.

And anybody who regards the truth as 'dull' has had the all too common, and wrong education.
