In 1697 Charles Perrault, the famous French fabulist, published a collection known as "The Tales Of Mother Goose", which included some of the best-loved fairy stories of all time, such as Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Puss In Boots.
This title contains nine of the most famous children's fairy tales of all time, gathered in one volume, a must for every new reader's bookcase. Children will be able to discover ,or rediscover, their favourite characters and lose themselves in the adventures thanks to the original texts, but adapted into a modern and accessible language, perfect for both the youngest of children as well as those who can already read.
The stories are enriched and completed with the bright and attractive illustrations of Francesca Rossi, an artist has given a touch of modernity and freshness to the timeless classics.
