Fabella de Beniamino Cuniculo (The Tale of Benjamin Bunny in Latin)
"Beniaminus Cuniculus in viam lapsus est et ivit— sal, sal, saliter—cognationes visitatumquae in silva post hortum Domini Gregorii vivebant..."
"Little Benjamin Bunny slid down into the road, and set off -- with a hop, skip and a jump -- to call upon his relations, who lived in the wood at the back of Mr. McGregor's garden."
The whimsical characters of Beatrix Potter live in a no-nonsense world where mistakes have consequences, and a wrong step might get you made into meat pies by Mrs. McGregor or eaten by a fox. Sarah Hill’s vivid new Latin translations capture the simplicity and charm of the original tales in smooth, effortless Latin. Fabella de Petro Cuniculo (Peter Rabbit), Fabella de Beniamino Cuniculo (Benjamin Bunny), and Fabella de Jemima Paludivaga (Jemima Puddleduck) are sure to please students and teachers as well as any casual readers, whether children or adults. Each splendid Latin story contains Beatrix Potter’s own color illustrations along with glosses for tricky vocabulary.
"These three little books, newly conversae in linguam Latinam by Sarah Hill, couldn’t be more charming. Kids (and their moms and dads too) have forever loved Peter Rabbit and family and dear Jemima Puddle-duck, and readers with any affection at all for Latin will cherish Jemima Paludivaga and Petrus Cuniculus even more -- not to mention Hill’s Flacilla, Pupilla and Lanosa-cauda -- Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail!"
