An UpdateLa Fontaine’s « Les Grenouilles qui demandent un roi » (“The Frogs who desired a King”) I have updated a blog published on August 18, 2011. It remains relevant, but at the time I wrote it, I did not know how to embed a video in a post. So, it is now easier to read. Micheline Walker© June 19, 2012 WordPress
