Inhaltsangabe: An illustrated collection of Perrault fairy tales, including "Cinderella," "The Sleeping Beauty," and "Blue Beard."
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4-- In these eight familiar tales, the uncredited translations follow the French closely, except for a few deleted passages, retaining much of the formal, literary style of the originals. Each tale bears an emblematic title page and one or two full-page paintings illustrating standard moments: the Prince discovers the Sleeping Beauty, a simpering Red Riding Hood meets the wolf in the wood, Master Cat confronts the Ogre, Cinderella flees down the palace steps. The ink and watercolor paintings bear Hague's trademarks: the rich dusky palette filling the page, the misshapen figures and their placement in the foreground, and a tendency to overembellish, in this case with a repeated stylized floral border whose bright color and crisp style clash with the romanticized pictures. --Karen Litton, London Public Libraries, Ontario, Canada
