      This is a beautifully illustrated book of classic fairy tells written by Charles Perrault with 35 black-and-white illustrations by Gustave Dore which include Little Red Riding Hood, Little Thumb, The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Riquet with the Tuft, The Fairy, and Blue Beard. One of my reading goals in 2017 is to revisit some favorite books that I enjoyed as a young girl. I loved that the stories were told in the original form, not the Disney style. I forgot how scar [...]

      In Sasha Moorsom's translations of Perrault's fairy tales, it was VERY interesting to compare and contrast each traditional tale. Using one story for example, the story of "Sleeping Beauty" has by far the most grim ending I've associated to the book! As if there is part 2 of the book, the mother of the prince is an ogre that enjoys eating children and therefore Sleeping Beauty and her children are hidden by the Prince. It has been said that cannibalism runs through many traditional fairy tales b [...]

      This batch is not my favorite bunch of fairytales, but The Fairies one is fantastic! I liked also Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella, but also Puss in Boots and Little Tom Thumb. A nice reading overall, even with morals which not always make sense

      I often feel like Perrault is being overlooked and underestimated when it comes to fairy tales. He is not nearly as famous as the Brothers Grimm or H.C. Andersen, however I do think his fairy-tales are equally as powerful as theirs. The stories are well composed, and truly terrifying in some aspects. It's definitely not the happy disneyfied stories as we know today, but grim and raw tales dealing with problems everyone - even adults - can relate to, and written with a specific point or morale in [...]

      This book was translated from French in 1972. There aren't any new stories, but were mostly French folktales in Perrault's time. It is said that the brothers Grimm republished some of the stories (and I would not be surprised if they were included in Lang's Fairy Tale books, the ones in colors). Some of the stories were gruesome - like the nicer endings to the stories were added later, but not in this book. There were two sections in this book: Older Tales and Mother Goose. Each story ends with [...]

      You just can't beat the classics. Perrault and the earlier folk tales that most modern fairytales are based on are invariably pitch-perfect. The more modern the retelling then more saccharine it tends to get, but this book of vividly drawn morality tales is uncompromising and beautiful. A must for adults and children everywhere, this should be staple reading for everyone before they get to read any other books! My favourite bonus to this edition is the Mme Le Prince de Beaumont version of Beauty [...]

      Take that Mr Disney! and that Messrs Grimm!I've now read the originals & they're awesomeNothing PC here: there's decapitations, ogres galore, children being eaten, heroines die (end of story - definitely no 'Happily Ever After') and often with a slightly longer story version that we commonly know now.The morality tales are not lost amongst the gore and so the stories are somehow more satisfying. The 1600's rock.

      This small collection of a dozen French fairy tales was quite enjoyable. Most of these are classics that almost everyone has heard a version of. My only real complaint was that the book is titled Perrault's Fairy Tales, when in fact only nine of the twelve stories are his. I just don't know why they chose to give it that title when a full quarter of the stories are by others. In any case, I definitely enjoyed reading it.

    9. Sarah on said:

      I had never heard of Perrault before I came across this book. I enjoy his fairy tales though more than Grimm. Maybe because some of Grimm's tales are more abstract than I like and because Perrault is, for lack of a better word, less grim.

      Honestly, 4 stars doesn't seem right to me, beause there are some stories in this book that I absolutely love and would give 5 stars without hesitation. But there are also others, which I still loved, but wouldn't necessarily rate 5/5.

    11. Tim Weakley on said:

      The perfect combination of a beautifully illustrated book, and surprisingly good stories. Some of them were quite harsh! I have to say that this version of Beauty and the Beast is the best I've read.

    12. Kim on said:

      Absolutely loved the fairy tales!I didn't know all the fairy tales, but I really did enjoy reading them.The fairy tales I did know still had new elements in the story that I hadn't heard of before.I would recommend this book to everyone!

      Lovely to read the original of many childhood favourites, though they are much darker here. Some new ones added into the book too.
