This unorthodox Christmas story by the nineteenth-century French author Paul Arène appeared in Nouveaux Contes de Noël (New Christmas Stories, 1890). “The Gospel According to Saint Perrault” is a recast of the Nativity told from the perspective of a 4-year-old girl, who incorporates into the biblical account characters and events from Charles Perrault’s Histoires ou contes du temps passé.
