This popular collection of 12 familiar fairy tales in Latin has been a classroom favorite for over a decade now. It provides an engaging alternative to traditional Latin texts for translation and reading comprehension. Aimed at intermediate and advanced Latin students, these stories are not as technically difficult as prose excerpts from authors like Livy and Cicero. Each story is 500-1000 words in length and accompanied by a traditional illustration. A comprehensive glossary of 900 entries includes the English translation for all words used in the text.
