Everything you need to understand or teach The Golden Ass by Apuleius.
Lucius, a Roman traveling through Greece, is accidentally transformed into a donkey when his curiosity causes him to investigate a witch's magic a little too closely.

Milo is married to a powerful witch named Pamphile, whose secrets he convinces Fotis, his lover and Pamphile's maid, to reveal to him. He hopes to transform, perhaps for only a few hours, into a bird, but they take the wrong potion...
