Read It:

Here is a collection of 12 familiar fairy tales, including "The Three Little Pigs (Tres Porcelli)," "Little Red Riding Hood (Lacernella Rubra)," and "The Emperor's New Clothes (Novae Vestes Imperatoris)," all in Latin. This provides an engaging alternative to traditional Latin texts for translation and reading comprehension.

Directed toward intermediate and advanced Latin students, these stories are not as technically difficult as prose excerpts from authors like Livy or Cicero. Each story is about 500-1,000 words in length, and accompanied by a lively illustration. A comprehensive glossary of 900 entries includes the English translation for all words used in the text.
