dc.description.abstractThe colophon for this charming little booklet is so long and complex that I could not find out some of the information that I needed. Hachette, McDonald's, The Marketing Store Worldwide, and Havi Global Solutions seem to have the rights locked up, but which of them produced this booklet or where is not clear. Apparently the series takes La Fontaine's fables and makes them into a page by page quest, where we need to answer questions -- not necessarily germane to the fable -- before moving on. This milkmaid is swinging her pail around rather than carrying it on her head, and she has Billy, her friendly puppy, with her. La Fontaine's fable is given the last two pages. Before then we get a longer prose version that wanders through some 25 pages. The setting is the "Far West." Billy accompanies her as she is swinging the pot. Question: What has impressed the serpent in the corner? Answer: the horns of the bull. As Billy and Perrette converse about her eggs in the next scene, our question concerns the Mariachi band playing near them. And so on. Perrette's dreams even construct a gigantic amusement park and get her into a circus performance. My! There is plenty of spirit and imagination here. I think La Fontaine would love it, if he would recognize it. This booklet inspired me to seek the rest of the booklets in the series. It is not yet clear whether I will be able to "bring them in."en_US
