The Complete Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault



The Complete Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault translated by Neil Philip and Nicoletta Simborowski, Illustrated by Sally Holmes

Eleven Fairy tales, most of which I had read previously, although the versions are rather different not whitewashed and sanitized like most modern fairy tales. The illustrations are wonderful, even though most parents might not want to read these tales to their children. Not that I of course think there is a thing wrong with them, and I think the reality in these tales is far better than what is seen on TV on in the movies, but it might be a bit much for very young children.
