The Sleeping Beauty and other fairy tales From the Old French

Read by mlcui

(4.8 stars; 86 reviews)

What began as a translation project became a retelling of four classic fairy tales from the Cabinet des Fees, the French collection of over forty volumes. "Certainly the translations, when finished, did not satisfy me, and so I turned back to the beginning and have rewritten the stories in my own way, which (as you may say with the Irish butler) “may not be the best claret, but ’tis the best ye’ve got.”

Delightful Tales and Reader

(5 stars)

Disney should be ashamed for what he did to these stories. I enjoyed these stories. The reader's voice was quite interesting with just enough emotions and inflection to hold my attention and create a pleasant experience.

Nicely Done!

Makes one feel nostalgic. Very well read.
