When a poor miller dies and leaves only a cat to his youngest son, the ungrateful young man assumes his inheritance to be useless. Yet as the bequeathed cat finagles a new identity for the son---the Marquis of Carabas---that is complete with fine clothes, fields of wheat, a castle stolen from an ogre, and in the end, the respect of the king and the hand of the king's daughter, the son learns to appreciate that the greatest gifts are not always what they seem.
Cuando un molinero pobre muere y deja slo un gato a su hijo ms joven, el hijo presume que la herencia no tiene ningn valor. Pero resulta que el gato es muy listo---manipula la identidad y reputacin del hijo hasta que l tiene ropa fina, campos de trigo, un castillo robado de un ogro y el ttulo Marquess de Carabas. Al fin, el hijo gana el respeto del rey y la promesa de casarse con la princesa, y aprende que los mejores regalos no son siempre lo que parecen.

More About Charles Perrault

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! harles Perrault (1628 - 1703) was a French author and member of the Academie francaise. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botte (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois dormant (The Sleeping Beauty) and La Barbe bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm 200 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary scene, and was the leader of the Modern faction during the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns."

Charles Perrault was born in 1628 and died in 1703.
