About the Author

About the Author
"Charles Perrault (12 January 1628 – 16 May 1703) was a French author and member of the Académie française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots) and La Barbe bleue (Bluebeard).[1] Many of Perrault's stories were rewritten by the Brothers Grimm, continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film (Disney)." -- Wikipedia

About the Illustrator
"Paul Gustave Doré (January 6, 1832 – 1883) was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood engraving and steel engraving." -- Wikipedia
