Synopsis

The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault

About the Author

Charles Perrault

Charles Perrault was a French poet and writer. He is remembered mainly for his collection of fairytales published in 1697 under the title Histoires, ou contes du temps passe, avec des Moralitez.

His book became famous as Contes De ma Mere L'Oye, or Tales of Mother Goose. It contained eight tales - The Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard, Puss in Boots, Diamonds and Toads, Cinderella, Riquet a la Houppe, and Tom Thumb - probably retold based on cruder folk versions.

Perrault's elegant and simple style made these tales extremely popular, and they quickly became the accepted version of the stories. These tales as we have them today owe their form and beauty to Perrault's magical retelling.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
