ABC Short Tales - Jules Lemaître - ebook
Opis

The book includes delicious short tales. It is ideal to read to children of all ages, encouraging creativity and interest for the things of the world. The book was organized based on the French Alphabet of the early twentieth century, when there were not a letter W. Thus, each tale has as title a reference mnemonic word or a letter. So, being translated from the French, it was not possible to maintain full correspondence between these key words in both languages. For this reason the French version was kept for reference. The tales are: Donkey (Âne), Sheep (Bélier), Duck (Canard), Dragonfly (Demoiselle), Snail (Escargot), Ant (Fourmi), Cake (Gateau), Swallow (Hirondelle), Ibis (Ibis), Toys (Jouets), Kangaroo (Kangourou), Wolf (Loup), Sparrow (Moineau), Snow (Neige), Ear (Oreille), Pea (Pois), Tail (Queue ), Nightingale (Rossignol), Pine (Sapin), Tortuise (Tortue), Universe (Univers), Violets (Violettes), Xavier (Xavier), Yvonne (Yvonne), and Zero (Zéro). The author is Jules Lemaître and texts of Hans Christian Andersen and Florian are also used. The original publication came in 1919 with the name “ABC Petites Contes.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The book was translated from French. 

As result it was not possible to maintain full correspondence between the key words in both languages. 

For this reason the ABC runs in French, that was kept for reference.

DONKEY (Âne)

In a village used to live a poor woman, who had a small donkey for company. She loved the animal because he was smart and kind and he seemed happy to carry vegetables and groceries that she used to buy in the city market in his back.

But some bad boys used to laugh at the old woman and her donkey.

One day, they shouted to the old woman:

“Hello, mother of a donkey!”

“Hello, my sons,” replied the old lady.

The donkey, in his turn, seemed to mock them too, moving his ears, and the boys could not think of anything to respond.

SHEEP (Bélier)

Berta was a clumsy girl. She always left the doors open. Her mother, who was a farmer, often scolded her because, during the absence of Berta, dogs, chickens and even piglets littered throughout the house. But Berta could not act correctly.

One day, when her mother was on the market, Berta got distracted playing in the garden and, as usual, forgot to close the door.

The sheep escaped the barn and quietly entered the house.

As it found no in the inferior level of the house, the sheep climbed up the stairs to the first floor, where there was, in the bedroom of Berta’s parents, a wardrobe with a mirror. When the sheep saw its image in the mirror, it thought it was another sheep. Then the sheep threatened to butt, but the other sheep made the same move.

Furious, he stood up, but the other sheep stood up too.

Then the sheep launched the attack, throwing all his strength against the mirror, which ended up breaking into pieces.
