Project Idea: Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault

The French writer Charles Perrault was one of the first authors of "literary" fairy tales, and he told many stories that will be familiar to you already — such as Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood — along with some wonderful stories that you may not know already, like Blue Beard.

Research Tip: You will find background about Perrault at Wikipedia, and you can find the actual fairy tales in this book online: The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault translated by R. Samber and J.E. Mansion (with illustrations by Harry Clarke). There is also a nice presentation of the Perrault fairy tales at Sur La Lune. If you work with one of Perrault's longer stories, you could actually build a Storybook just about that one story, like his stories of Puss-in-Boots, Little Thumb, Donkey-Skin, or Blue Beard.
