Abstract
"Un conte écrit et raconté par Anne Roumanoff d'après les Fables de La Fontaine." This 32-page landscape-formatted book with CD presents another extensive and engaging contemporary adaptation of La Fontaine's fable with delightful animal figures. Marie-Chantal and Eugénie are childhood friends who go off to medical school and live together. Their habits are so different by now that they go separate ways. After months of negligence, Marie-Chantal faces an exam. Hungry and abandoned, she goes to her old friend to ask for help. Eugénie calls on her friends Scott La Marmotte and Victor le Castor to create a team that tutors Marie-Chantal for a week. Eugénie, Scott, and Castor come in first, second, and third on the exam, respectively. Marie-Chantal is 668th but she passes. "Quand on veut, on peut." And "Trop travailler, ça n'est pas bien, mai trop s'amuser, ça n'est pas bien non plus." The last pages offer La Fontaine's fable with helps and questions. This is the third of Roumanoff's adaptations that we are lucky enough to include in the collection. Not the least virtues of this book are the lively illustrations and the wonderfully concrete sense of what kids actually do!
