These tales balance black-and-white ink sketches with full color (acrylics?). The only Aesopic fable is Taking a Donkey to Market (35). The black-and-whites here are good. Some characters switch from their traditional roles (e.g., here the women harp at the son for riding). Father and son actually carry the beast in their arms, and that absurd action gets a good colored painting. No sad ending.
