You bought this little traditional-looking children’s book in a bookstore.
As you flip through its fifteen or so illustrated pages, you discover a basic tale based on a character that makes you think of… oh yes, of course, the divine marquis! Without ever revealing his name, the little book recounts his life in a fun way and seems to do justice to the historical truth and, at the same time, respects the conventional codes of children’s literature.
There’s action, laughter, tears, and a moral to the story. Your children love it!
