|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Squib author J. K. Rowling has noted the difference between this fairy tale and wizarding children's stories: that instead of being in the origin of the heroine's troubles, in wizarding children's stories magic is seen as a tool that must be used properly not to cause as many problems as it fixes.
