Does anyone know if any of these are available in Ancient Greek? My Attic Greek study group is looking for some texts a bit easier (and more fun) than leaping into Plato or Hesiod. Actually, we've made a pass at writing _Petros_Lagoos_, a translation of _Peter_Rabbit_. But writing is much harder than reading. Erich
