The Tales of Mother Goose

Charles PERRAULT (1628 - 1703), translated by Charles WELSH (1850 - 1914)

These stories were the original ones collected by Charles Perrault and published in French in 1696. You may have heard of some of them and they are probably a bit different than what you may expect, coming from an age and time when the ears of our children were not considered so delicate." For example: "Grandmamma, what great teeth you have got!" "That is to eat thee up." And, saying these words, this wicked Wolf fell upon Little Red Riding-hood, and ate her all up." end of story. - Summary by Phil chenevert
