French Classical Authors
Editor and Translator: Nicolae Sfetcu
The short stories for children of this anthology were selected with love and attention specifically to meet the requirements of each child, parent, grandparent, teacher, or educator … Whether it’s a love story, a story of Christmas or a short story of goodnight – this anthology of stories contains certainly what you’re looking and you like. I hope you will be happy to enter the fantastic world of immortal fairy tales in your spare time, for fun, or for homework for school. The anthology includes a wide range of fairy tales with princesses and kings, animals and frantic supernatural phenomena for all tastes.
I brought together in this anthology some of the most beautiful short stories of the classical French literature for children. The first edition will be continued over many years to come, with other stories at least as beautiful, written by the most famous French authors.
