New post A fun book in Latin
For those of us trying to build up our Latin, the following book is both very entertaining, and helpful towards our goal:

Winnie Ille Pu, by A. A. Milne, translated by Alexander Lenard, published by Penguin Books, illustrated by E. H. Shepard.

From the opening page:

A. A. Milnei
"WINNIE ILLE PU"
Liber celeberrimus omnibus fere
puer puellisque notus
nunc primum de anglico sermone
in Latinum conversus auctore
Alexandro Lenardo
Novi Eboraci: Sumptimus Duttonis

When you've done with it you could try and maybe enjoy:
Domus anguli puensis (published Methuen)
and
Beatricis Potter: Fabula de Petro Cuniculo

et

Fabula de Domino Iermia piscatore

(Warne,London)
I liked the old, and taught it in school, Latin With Laughter
