|dc.description.abstract||This French edition quite exactly replicates its 2013 original by Usborne. The place of printing has changed from China to the United Arab Emirates. Otherwise, only the change of language seems to separate the two books, bought almost exactly ten years apart. As I wrote there, this is a squat edition, 6" x 7¾" with puffy covers. Its 272 pages are divided into eight categories, with three to six stories in each group. The categories are Pride, Trickery, Greed, Quarrels, Friendship, Cunning, Retorts, and Comeuppance. The story versions are good and filled out nicely with picturesque details. All but TH are well thought through. Davidson has the hare deliberately nap, planning on making the race competitive when the turtle catches up near the end. The illustrations are charming and colorful. FC on 14 is a good example. The book is physically heavy||en_US|
