Arthur Quiller-Couch had this to say regarding his translation of these tales: "My own share in this volume is, perhaps, less easily defended. I began by translating Perrault's tales, very nearly word for word; because to me his style has always seemed nearly perfect for its purpose; and the essence of 'style' in writing is propriety to its purpose."

I often listen to fairy tales when I'm trying to sleep, and this one is the best I've found so far. The narrator's voice is very soothing, and the book contains four stories: Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
