- Perrault, Charles
- (1628-1703)In 1697 this French writer published Histoires et Contes du Temps Passe, eight fairytales with traditional plots, rendered in a polished and witty style; they were translated into English in 1729 as Mother Goose Tales, a term taken from Perrault's subtitle. Five are now among the basic tales all English children know: 'Cinderella', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Puss in Boots', 'Bluebeard', and 'Red Riding Hood'.
