Title Case

Titles are often written in title case.  In title case, only the principal words are given capital letters.  Prepositions (e.g., in, on, under, at) and articles (i.e., the, a, an) are written with lowercase letters (unless they start the title).

Examples:

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Last of the Mohicans (Note: When a preposition or an article starts the title, it is given a capital letter.)
 
I love your Thomas the Tank Engine bag. [show me the title case]
