Perrault, Charles, Doré. Her mother doted on her. Her grandmother was even fonder, and made her a little red hood, which became her so well that everywhere she went by the name of Little Red Riding Hood. who had just made and baked some cakes, said to her: Go and see how your grandmother is, for I have been told that she is ill. Take her a cake and this little pot of butter. Little Red Riding Hood set off at once for the house of her grandmother, who lived in another village. On her way through a wood she met old Father Wolf He would have very much liked to eat her,.

Charles Perrault solidified the fairy tale as a literary genre and authored fairy tales such as Cinderella, Puss in Boots, and Little Red Riding Hood. Although much lesser known than his literary heirs the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, 17th-century French writer, Charles Perrault, not only solidified the fairy tale as a literary genre but wrote nearly all of the genre's most signature stories, including "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Bluebeard," "Puss in Boots," "Tom Thumb," and the larger designation of Mother.

Children do enjoy stories with ogres and things and in the years that follow the publication of this book, children are protected more from things people think might be too scary like an ogre eating children, not to mention to tell the morals and convey the themes involved some of the stories needed to have a little gore and what some would consider.

Eight of the twelve tales in this book are from the master hand of Charles Perrault (1628-1703). Although Perrault enjoyed much distinction in the French literary circle of the late seventeenth century, his fame today rests upon his authorship of the traditional 'Tales of Mother Goose', or 'Stories of Olden Times'. And 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, 'Beauty and the Beast', again not by Perrault (it was penned by Mme. Leprince de Beaumont 1711-1781), has a similarity of style and celebrity which justifiably merits its inclusion.
Reviews about Perrault's Fairy Tales (Wordsworth Children's Classics) (7):
Braendo
This collections holds about 8 or 10 classic fairy tales, some we know well some not so much. Many we have seen reappear from other authors such as the Brothers Grimm and made into movies by the likes of Disney, but Disney changed quite a bit from these tales. I liked being able to read the original versions of the stories and see how they became different throughout time from 1697 to now 2018 there are a lot of differences for example, Little Red Riding Hood does not get rescued, but devoured by the wolf. Each of the stories have some sort of gore to them, not intended to really scare the children, but for the ew factor, though I do admit some stories I wondered how they were considered children stories.

Some of the stories I have read before in Brother's Grimm, other stories like Puss In Boots, I have not read before and enjoyed finally getting the chance to read them in their original format. Children do enjoy stories with ogres and things and in the years that follow the publication of this book, children are protected more from things people think might be too scary like an ogre eating children, not to mention to tell the morals and convey the themes involved some of the stories needed to have a little gore and what some would consider adult themes.

While the author included morals of the story, they do seem to be morals that HE thought the story told and have room for each reader to form their own opinions of what the fairy tales are supposed to convey. Some people may say classic fairy tales are no longer relevant especially with the movies and adaptations we've seen throughout the years, but I believe they are still relevant and convey the same if not different morals to an audience in today's society no matter how different things may be.

I recommend everyone read this collection, it may open your eyes to some beloved stories you thought you knew or rekindle a love for a story you loved as a child. Pick up a copy from amazon.

Charles Perrault is hardly a household name, yet his "Old Time Tales" (1697) have had a profound influence on both high art and pop culture. He established the fairy tale as a literary genre, paving the way for the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. This volume contains the original versions of "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Bluebeard," "Puss in Boots," "Little Tom Thumb," and two less well-known tales, "The Fairies" and "Ricky of the Tuft." Be forewarned: these are not the sanitized, Disney versions most of us are familiar with. They are full of unexpected and often gruesome details, revealing the pervasive violence, poverty, and hunger underneath the glittering face of seventeenth-century France. Perrault writes with the polished elegance of French neoclassicism. This edition includes 34 trippy illustrations by the inimitable Gustave Dore, who illustrated everything from the Holy Bible to Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." Perhaps the best known is the frequently reproduced illustration of Puss in Boots, which has attained iconic status. This book will please readers of all ages, although it might be too intense for very young children.

If you ever wondered where Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty came from, they came from this remarkable 17th century Frenchman. The stories themselves are fascinating, as they all have morals appended that are, of course, very tied to the cultural mores of the time. And no, they aren't exactly like the Disney versions! Harry Clarke is considered Ireland's greatest illustrator, and the reproductions of his color and black & white work in this book will show you why. The intricacy of the illustrations is just astonishing, and I am happy to say that this book shows them very well - sharp, deep, and with good color fidelity. It's true that some of the females are bare chested and Sleeping Beauty is covered only by a veil, but I find this no more suggestive than, say, Venus di Milo. It's great art, and very much in keeping with the time the tales were written - check out the sky high hair on the noblewomen! All told, a fascinating soiree into the origins of some of our most familiar fairy tales.

I love the fact that I have heard and seen adaptations of so many of these stories and I had no idea who the author was or that he had written so many tales. It has been interesting reading the translated originals as an adult. I am glad that I stumbled across this collection as a result of a Google doodle a few weeks ago.

Excellent telling of classic fairy tales. A must read for any fairytale lover. I quite enjoyed this book!

I have a large collection of children's books, including a number of collectible volumes of classic stories illustrated by the greatest artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. To find a little collection like this that includes illustrations by Gustave Doré is truly a treasure. It's also fascinating to see familiar stories close to their original form, without the prudish edits they've collected over the years. Whether you're a fan of the artist and the writer or want a great storybook for your children, enjoy!

II have loved Perrault's stories since I was about four. They have an 'everlasting' quality. There are stories in this book I haven't read before. For many years I have enjoyed Gustave Dore's work and admired his faithful black and whites. His drawings always seem to carry a strong atmosphere in them. I bought the book because I couldn't wait to see how he would have done the illustrations. They are wonderful and bring the enchancted feeling of the text with them.
This is a good collection of entertaining fairy tales by an old master (though the rhyming morals at the end of each tale made me roll my eyes). The Kindle version worked perfectly on my phone--no skipped pages, no problems seeing the text.
