'The Tales of Mother Goose', as first collected by Charles Perrault in 1696 are here presented, with a translation by Charles Welsh and an Introduction by M.V. O'Shea. Perrault (1628-1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children's stories into the literary mainstream, proving to their original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. The stories in this particular text encompass favorites such as 'Blue Beard', 'Little Red Riding-Hood', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Puss in Boots' and 'Cinderella' as well as other, less well known tales such as 'Riquet of the Tuft', 'Little Thumb' and 'The Fairy.' The text is accompanied by the wonderful black-and-white illustrations of D.J. Munro, inspired by - and in the style of, the great artist Gustave Doré (1832-1883), who worked primarily with wood engraving. These images further refine and enhance the storytelling of the legendary Perrault. This is a book to be enjoyed and appreciated by both young and old alike.
