Perrault's Fairy Tales

Charles Perrault’s world of "Fairy Tales" will transport you to another time. You will find yourself in a mystical universe in which brave princes save princesses, wolves lurk amongst dark forests, and clever cats help their humans. The fairies that fly between each page and lay curses upon innocent princesses will teach you that they aren’t always kind, but you will learn that love defeats all, even evil fairies! A marvellous collection of stories, "Fairy Tales" has it all - kingdoms, animals, a bit of danger, a lot of love, and the secret ingredient, magic! Includes fairy tales such as "Little Thumb", "The Fairy", "Riquet with The Tuft", "Blue Beard", "Puss in boots", "Sleeping Beauty", "Donkey-Skin", "Cinderella" and "Little Red Riding Hood". Charles Perrault (1628 - 1703) was a French author. A pioneer of the fairy-tale genre, his stories are based upon traditional folk tales. Amongst his most famous stories are ‘Puss in Boots', ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Cinderella’, and ‘Sleeping Beauty'. These tales have been adapted to both the stage and the screen countless times, most famously by Disney and their animated films such as ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’ which remain classics for children today.
