Philosophical tales for the bilingual reader

Posted by Amélie, on 3 May 2018. Comments: 0

The Tales of Minerva the owl are a distinctly modern take on both fables and dual-language books. The French and English texts are laid out in columns, each line facing its corresponding translation, to facilitate vocabulary recognition for the beginner reader.

Drawing on the classical fable tradition, the stories of Minerva feature animals and humans facing moral conundrums and fantastical situations, from Greek sirens to Chinese emperors, but also approach the challenges of the modern world, from pollution and energy production to corporate greed.

Written by philosopher Jean Greisch, the stories of Minerva are accompanied by beautiful illustrations throughout, and appeal to younger and older readers alike, no matter their language level. The perfect addition to a school or home library!

The Tales of Minerva are suitable for readers from age 8 up. For younger readers, we recommend the collection Contes & Tales, also from publisher Ipagine. Similarly laid-out and illustrated, this collection will delight readers from 4 to 12, with stories that can be read with an adult, or on their own.
