In 1697, the French author polished a collection of folk stories called “Tales of Mother Goose”. The book included some stories that are still popular. In one tale, Cinderella’s fairy godmother changes a pumpkin into a carriage and mice into horses – and changes them back again. In another story, an evil fairy condemns Sleeping Beauty to death. But a good fairy changes the curse from death to sleep, so a handsome prince can awaken a girl with a kiss.
