Publication Date: 27/03/2019


Every year, a baron who is passionate about hunting brings together his hunting friends around him. At the end of the meal, the spell designates a guest who must tell a story. Small stories that are in turn funny and touching, where we take pleasure in ridiculing some and laughing at others. Why is the brave Morin nicknamed by everyone "this pig of Morin"? What were the adventures of a country lady when her garden was looted by thieves? What is the story of this old man dancing in the alleys of the Luxembourg nursery in Paris?

Many questions whose answers can be found in these mischievous tales!
