Charles Perrault could be considered to have invented the genre Fairy Tales. Born in 1628 he took well known folk tales and turned them into some of our best loved stories, like Puss in Bookts, Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella.
In this gorgeous edition published by Penguin, Angela Carter's translation lovingly modifies and retells them for the modern day reader. I love Angela Carter's writing and her clear love of this genre shines through on every page.
