About the author (2011)

Charles Perrault was a French author and member of the prestigious Acad?mie Fran?aise. Taking his inspiration from folk tales, Perrault created the fairy tale genre, including such enduring tales as "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Puss in Boots," and "Sleeping Beauty," which were published in 1697 as part of his Tales of Mother Goose. Amongst the most influential literary figures in 17th century France, Perrault took part in the creation of the Academy of Sciences, the restoration of the Academy of Painting, and was secretary of the Academy of Inscriptions and Belles-Lettres. He also initiated the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns, and led the Modern faction which argued that the literature from the century of Louis XIV was superior to that of the ancients. Perrault's work served as an inspiration for the Brothers Grimm, and continues to be adapted for the stage, opera, ballet, and film.

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), though best known for his novels and short stories for adults, also produced several works for children, including a companion volume to A Wonder Book called Tanglewood Tales (1853).
