"Mr. Betts' translation trips lightly off the tongue and Gustave Doré's intricate and beautifully executed illustrations are a perfect match. A brainy but fun read."
--Sacramento Book Review
"Perrault was an iconoclast, a rebel against the tyranny of classical education in the 17th century, who set out to prove that myths based on European folk tales could have as enduring and profound an appeal as the stories of the Greeks and Romans. A new translation of his little book, by Christopher Betts, proves him triumphantly right about that." --Los Angeles Times
