French author Charles Perrault, best known for writing history’s most popular versions of the “Sleeping Beauty” and “Cinderella” fairy tales, would have celebrated his 388th birthday today. To commemorate the occasion, artist Sophie Diao created three Google Doodles inspired by stories from Perrault’s The Tales of Mother Goose collection. Each Doodle reveals an iconic scene from the classic narratives, which you can read in English here.
