Beloved fairy tale author Charles Perrault published the first known version of The Tales of Mother Goose in 1697, under the French title Histoires ou contes du temps passï½s, avec des moralitï½s. The collection includes "The Sleeping Beauty", "Little Red Riding Hood", and "Cinderella", as well as many others that would go on to become adored favourites, several of which are thought to be inventions of Perrault himself. The stories each end with a rhyming moral and have gone on to spawn countless film, television, novel, musical and stage adaptations to the delight of modern audiences.
