Human enters a magical realm and encounters its fantastic denizens? The 
very essence of a fairy tale. (The definition of /fairy tale/ is not a 
tale about fairies.) /Fairy tale/ and /wonder tale/ are synonymous.

See especially J.R.R. Tolkien's essay /On Fairy Stories./ He would 
object to calling fairy tales /child-stories/ the way Klingon does.
