| book description |

A rollicking entertainment for word lovers.MOTS D'HEURES: GOUSSES, RAMES The d'Antin ManuscriptDiscovered, Edited, and Annotated by LUIS D'ANTIN VAN ROOTENWarning: this book is addictive! The rhymes of your childhood - and your children's childhood - sound even better (and much funnier) in the accents of Moliere and Sarkozy. Once you get the point of these delectable j'aime se from the works of Mere L'Oie, you will find yourself reading them aloud to anyone who will listen.If you've had two years of French or eaten escargots on the Rive Gauche only once, you're certain to fall prey to the charms of these homonymic approximations of forty familiar English nursery rhymes.The following well-known saga of the world's most famous omelette is a typical example:Un petit d'un petitS'etonne aux HallesUn petit d'un petitAh! degres te fallentIndolent qui ne sort cesseIndolent qui ne se meneQu'importe un petit d'un petitTout Gai de Reguennes
