This book tells you the fascinating stories of English words that came from French, often words you would never have dreamt were French (like curtsy, mutton, very, surrender, important, grenade, pistol and dozen).

It tells you how these words evolved, how they arrived in English, and how they changed once in English.This is not a book with useful facts to memorize (although you’ll learn a lot of French and a lot about French while you read). However, it’s interesting. Its fun to read. It will stretch your mind and introduce you to things you never imagined. Think of these fascinating stories as a little treat for yourself when you feel like reading something interesting.READ WHAT PROFESSORS AND INSTRUCTORS OF FRENCH HAVE WRITTEN about this book:I have to tell you, This Book is So Much Fun to Read!
