Réédition d'un ouvrage paru en 1976. L'éminent psychiatre pour enfants s'est penché sur ce monde enchanteur du merveilleux et du fantastique pour démontrer et démonter l'aspect hautement pédagogique de ce vaste réservoir mythique universel et même cosmique. Ses conclusions vont contre les tenants du traumatisme inconscient innervé par ces textes. Faisant l'éloge de l'utilité de l'imagination et de celle de l'enchantement qui constituent les deux grandes sections du livre, il soumet à la psychanalyse seize exemples de façon connexe à la mentalité tant des jeunes enfants que des adolescents. Notes abondantes, bibliographie et double index des noms et des contes, fables et mythes cités
