De Carduele et Puero


I'm using some new crossword puzzle software (online, fast, easy) to create new puzzles to go with the new Aesop's fables I'm posting at

Today's fable at Latin Via Fables is De Carduele et Puero: The Goldfinch and The Boy. You can visit the Latin Via Fables page for this fable to see the Latin text, English translation and some grammar help.

anteponere, arbitratus, avis, carduelis, cavea, cibus, cunctus, cur, deliciae, egredi, habere, ingredi, interrogare, largus, libertas, nolle, nutrire, pascere, posse, puer, suavis
