Cinderella and Other Stories

Charles Perrault’s time-honoured stories have been passed down from the seventeenth century to the present day, giving us the classic fairy tales that people of all ages know and adore: Cinderella, with the glass slipper that will fit her foot alone; the princess who is cursed to sleep for a hundred years until true love’s kiss wakes her; Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf, and many, many more.Like the Brothers Grimm after him, Perrault took childhood fears and turned them into inspiriting fantasies. Full of humanity and a surprising wit, the impact these fables has had on imaginations young and old cannot be overstated.
