A seminal figure, Charles Perrault is credited with giving classic status to the humble fairy tale. Our favourites, including Little Red Riding-Hood, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella, have been passed down from the seventeenth century in Perrault’s version, and have continued to be enjoyed the same way they were at the court of Louis XIV.
