The stepmother made her do the meanest jobs in the house: the girl scoured the dishes and tables, and scrubbed the bathroom of her Stepmother, and those of her daughters; she slept in a little attic, upon a wretched straw bed, while her sisters lay upon beds with the softest pillows, in fine rooms, with floors covered with beautiful carpets, and walls on which hung looking-glasses so large that they might see themselves at their full length from head to foot.

There are many versions of Cinderella. In the Chinese original, Cinderella is remarkable for having the smallest feet of any woman alive. The Brothers Grimm published their own Cinderella,and The Victorian Andrew Lang followed the 17th Century version by Charles Perrault, which we present here. You will find it is courtly and romantic in style.

Read by Natasha Gostwick. Duration 19 Minutes.

Beauty and the Beast by Charles Perrault is one of the BIG fairy tales and it’s long been a favourite on Storynory. We’ve re-recorded it with music, sound effects, and an edited text. The acoustic guitar and sitar music add to its exotic atmosphere.

Beauty and the Beast is one of those stories that is told and retold in different guises. The powerful myth of tenderness concealed within ugliness can be found in Jane Eyre, and King Kong.
