The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault (Wisehouse Classics Edition - with original color illustrations by Harry Clarke)

by Charles Perrault and Harry Clarke

CHARLES PERRAULT (12 January 1628 - 16 May 1703) was a French author and member of the Académie Française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty), and Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm more than 100 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary s...

The French Love Pastry and Her Tale in the Sand: A Dip into the Byblos Foretold Novaplex

by M.E. Meegs and Mélisande Bodel

Once upon a time, on the north coast of France, a callipygian chambermaid set her sights on a rich American with a fetish. It’s the spring of 1903, and the coy Nicole—intoxicated by a combination of youthful infatuation and ageless avarice—puts all her most promising parts to work. But it’s not by her comely tail she’ll win this learned lad’s heart, for his obsession runs deeper—or, at least, further down….

Reminiscent of the tales comprising The Decameron, this singular story recounts yet another skirmish in the age-old battle of the sexes, and then betters Boccaccio by adding a pair of instructive morals, à la: If you lead him by the nose, be sure to check the porridge for parts.
