A captivating retelling of the best-loved tales of master storyteller Charles Perrault. In this edition, cleverly set as stories within a story, Perrault writes for a little girl during her summer in the country. Old favorites--"Tom Thumb," "Sleeping Beauty," "Puss in Boots," and "Bluebeard," among others--are joined by tales about fairies and giants, about wishes come true, and about why little girls with red hoods shouldn't walk through the woods alone. Lawrence adds insights into the life and times of Perrault, and stunning illustrations bring the tales vividly to life.
