This book includes original translations of ten short stories for children written by Charles Perrault. He was a French author who laid foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, and whose best known tales, offered as if they were pre-existing folk tales, include Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, Cinderella, and Blue Beard. For example "Little Red Riding Hood" is a famous fairy tale about a young girl and a big bad wolf. The story has been changed considerably in its history and subject to numerous modern adaptations and readings. Perrault's most famous stories are still in print today and have been made into operas, ballets, plays, musicals, and movies, both live-action and animation. This edition includes about 50 illustrations. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition.
