Fabella de Petro Cuniculo (The Tale of Peter Rabbit in Latin)
"Olim erant quattuor Cuniculi parvi, et nomina erant --
"Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were --
Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter."
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!"
