THE TALES OF MOTHER GOOSE by Charles Perrault (1628 - 1703). Translated by charles welsh (1850 - 1914)

This project can be found in our catalog at http://librivox.org/the-tales-of-mother-goose-by-charles-perrault/
These stories were the original ones collected by Charles Perrault and published in French in 1696. You may have heard of some of them and they are probably a bit different than what you may expect, coming from an age and time when the ears of our children were not considered so delicate." For example:
"Grandmamma, what great teeth you have got!"
"That is to eat thee up."
And, saying these words, this wicked Wolf fell upon Little Red Riding-hood, and ate her all up
." And that folks, is the end of the story. No nearby woodsman bursts in to save her, the wolf burps happily and the moral of the story is hammered home with a vengeance that even the most vapid little girl or boy cannot misunderstand. What great stuff. ( Phil chenevert)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17208
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Nice version of Cinderella except marrying those nasty rotten sisters to some poor innocent men. Think how nasty they would be to all their "inferiors"

No problem Anne. real life does have an ugly head sometimes, doesn't it! I just had some nasty unforseen shocks too but no one was hurt so things will be OK.

Something's not right. If you try to stream individual stories from

https://librivox.org/the-tales-of-mother-goose-by-charles-perrault/

you get a 'file not found' message.
