Charles Perrault is certainly the most famous French author of Children’s tales. He inspired Hoffman, Brothers Grimm and many more with his unequalled classic Children Stories: BlueBeard, Little Thumbling, Sleeping Beauty, and the Little Red Riding Hood. He’s the most appropriate choice to open the Saturday French Tales season in January 2011. Exchange Theatre takes a look at what it is to be the most celebrated Children’s writer in How to make a good Little Red Riding Hood.
