C.S. Lewis on the Jokes and Morals in… Shrek?

C.S. Lewis was not one to appreciate the common understanding of children’s literature. He once wrote, “When I was ten I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
