Classic Fairy Tales By Charles Perrault to be published by Gill Books this September


13-09-2012 11:15

Here is a new edition of Classic Fairy Tales, illustrated by Harry Clarke, by French writer Charles Perrault. Out of print for years, it has been updated for a modern readership.

 

The fairy tales of Charles Perrault are not the soft-focus sanitised versions with which modern generations are familiar. In ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, for example, there is no happy resurrection of the child and her grandmother at the end of the story – they are eaten by the wolf and that’s the last we see of them. Here, actions always have consequences, some quite harsh, and there is always a moral to the story.

 

Other tales included are ‘Cinderella’, ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘Puss in Boots’. Paired with Clarke’s beautiful illustrations, Classic Fairy Tales is a wonderful gift book.


Classic Fairy Tales is published by Gill Books on 21 September 2012, priced at €16.99 / £14.99.
