Charles Perrault was born more than 300 years ago, in 1628. He wrote many books, but he will be remembered forever for just one: Stories or Tales from Times Past, with Morals: Tales of Mother Goose. The book contained only eight fairy tales, and they have become classics around the world. You have probably heard some of these stories in your own life!

- Sleeping Beauty

- Little Red Riding Hood

- Blue Beard

- Puss In Boots

- The Fairies

- Cinderella

- Ricky With The Tuft

- Little Tom Thumb

Many of these stories were already well-known to people even in Charles Perrault's time, but they had never been written down. They were stories told orally (which means spoken out loud), around the fire or at bedtime, to entertain and teach children. Some stories that Perrault wrote down were popular all over Europe, and some were also written down later in Germany as Grimm Fairy Tales.

Cinderilla; or, The Little Glass Slipper:

"ONCE there was a gentleman who married, for his se-cond wife, the proudest and most haughty woman that was ever seen. She had, by a former husband, two daughters of her own humour and they were indeed exactly like her in all things. He had likewise, by another wife, a young daughter, but of unparalleled goodness and sweetness of temper, which she took from her mother, who was the best creature in the world.."
