The tales from Perrault are from The Heart of Oak book series-Book II: Fables and Nursery Tales ed. by Charles Eliot Norton(1895). The author(s) of the Swiss tales is currently unknown, though a version of the first 2 appeared in The Haliburton Third Reader (1913). The other 2 French tales are from Favourite French Fairy Tales translated by Barbara Douglas (1920). The Poor Miller's Boy and the Cat by the Brothers Grimm is from the same anonymously translated 1853 edition as the others, however that version uses Son instead of Boy in the title. The first and last 2 Russian tales are actually Ukrainian. The first Turkish tale is actually Romanian, 1 of 4 translator R. Nisbet Bain included in his collection of Turkish stories.
