Do Fairy Tales work?

When I did my homework regarding finding a fairy tale for class I immediately thought of a couple I could use. One of them being The Boy Who Cried Wolf? But why was it so easy for me to think of one so easily? It was because the lesson was so valuable: don’t tell lies or people won’t believe you when you tell the truth. I also feel that the more bizarre the story the easier it is to remember. I was told the story about the boy who cried wolf when I was really young. I remember hearing it and being frightened that no one would help me if a wolf were to attack me because I was a liar.
