Soon after, the mother hears the sound of a bomb explode and rushes out to make sure her child is ok.

Tolkien’s Treebeard is very aware of the events going on outside Fangorn Forest, and moreover has the goodwill and wisdom to help in the fight against Saruman. Jackson’s interpretation of Treebeard is culturally irrelevant, rash, and unable to see the need for the ents to enter the battle until the hobbits convince him. There are three scenes in Jackson’s The Two Towers that illustrate his interpretations of Treebeard’s person: the first encounter of Treebeard and the hobbits, the Entmoot, and the scene on the edge of Fangorn Forest where Treebeard finally realizes the evil of Saruman. By comparing these three scenes in the movie with their corresponding parts in the book, we can see the differences and similarities between artistic portrayal of Treebeard, the tone of the scenes, the meaning behind the scenes, and the consequences of Jackson’s deviances. In the movie The Two Towers, we are first introduced to Treebeard when Merry and Pippin run into Fangorn Forest to escape from their captors.
A fairytale analysis of 'The Little Match Girl' story by Hans Christian Andersen should take into consideration the fact that many grim fairytales were originally written or narrated for adults, as folk tales representative of various cultures.

Furthermore, no self-respecting mother would have allowed a fragile child outside without some protection from the cold. Yet The Little Match Girl‘s golden tresses are uncovered, her head unprotected from the bitter excesses of the icy blasts.
