Red Beard and Other Stories.

The pirate Kheir ed Din, nicknamed Red Beard, is feared by everyone. No one, for fear of having his throat slit, dares to say the color of his beard or hair. Since he's the ruler, he calls the official portrait painter to truthfully reproduce his face, beard and all. Red Beard threatens to cut off his head. Will the painter succeed in getting him to accept his image?

LDF Notes: Four short stories of charm and intelligence from famous French author Tournier about the tyranny of images and the mystery of figures. For all ages, beginning at 11 years.

Barberousse et autres contes.

Le pirate Kheir ed Dîn, surnommé par dérision Barberousse, est redouté de tous. Et personne, de peur d'avoir la gorge tranchée, n'ose évoquer la couleur de sa barbe ou de ses cheveux. Devenu souverain, il convoque le portraitiste officiel qui tient à reproduire fidèlement son visage, barbe et cheveux compris... Barberousse menace de lui couper la tête. Le peintre réussira-t-il à lui faire accepter son image ?

Notes LDF: Quatre nouvelles d'un grand auteur français, sur la tyrannie de l'image et le mystère des chiffres. Pour tous les âges à partir de 11 ans.
