PERRAULT'S FAIRY TALES

TRANLATED BY A. E. JOHNSON    Book Number: 46623    Product format: Paperback

Eight of the twelve tales in this book are from the master hand of Charles Perrault (1628-1703). It is true to say that as long as there are children to listen spellbound to the adventures of 'Cinderella', 'Red Riding Hood', and that arch rogue 'Puss in Boots', his memory will endure. Three of the tales, 'The Ridiculous Wishes', 'Donkey-Skin' and 'Patient Griselda', are seldom included in Perrault collections as they were written in a very florid verse form. Not only Perrault, but Boccaccio, Chaucer and others have used the story of 'Patient Griselda'. The last story's 'Beauty and the Beast'. 144 page paperback.
