One of their great writers, Jean de La Fontaine, produced French versions of fables, in verse and with illustrations. There are twelve volumes, with stories such as The Ant and the Grasshopper, told with elegance, wit and verve, in simple French which is usually easy to understand today. Each teaches a lesson about our relationships with society.

Brilliant! Easy-reading whilst still captivating, Circe is a mythical immortal and yet infinitely relatable. Vivid descriptions of both scenery and characters bring the ancient tale to life.
