It was the product of one of the "Lady Intellectuals" of the Ludovican court. I can't off the top of my head recall if it were Mme. d'Aulnoy or not, but it would be typical of her output.

Thanks! That quickly solved a mystery I had for ages--so she was another fairy tale author around the time of Perrault--makes sense. I know his original stories were collected in volumes in France along with stories by others.

Here's a synopsis of the story http://en.wikipedia....rd_(fairy_tale) It's quite the story (as of course the original Sleeping Beauty with the Ogress mother of the Prince, etc is as well)

yes, Mel. Madame d'Aulnoy's CONTES DES FEES included the tale of 'The Blue Bird.'
