Four and Twenty Fairy Tales


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

This is a collection of French fairy tales by different famous authors. Included in this collection are such famous tales as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, but also tales which are now not as well-known but closely connected and certainly of interest to anyone enjoying fairy tales of that description. The translation is well made by James Planché (1858), a connoisseur of historical costume, which to this day plays a big role in fairy tales. - Summary by Carolin (23 hr 28 min)
