As we grow up with fairy tales, we simultaneously grow up with pictures, I suppose. If they aren't pictures in comic books and on the screen, then they are the illustrations in books read to us, we play with, or later on read ourselves. Such pictures both become part of and remain detached from the verbal narrative. The narrative, in turn, may or may not develop its own inner pictures for the listener or reader.
