The story is narrated by a fairy who says "My name is Know-a-bit, … I now make my home within the leaves of this volume". It is still somewhat moralistic despite the fact that it has a fairytale-like style and was published in the year following Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. A.L.O.E. is Mrs. Charlotte Maria Tucker's penname and stands for "A lady of England."
