dc.description.abstractThis large-format book (10 x 12) presents thirty-one fables on 89 pages. The artistry is regularly creative. This book was worth publishing! The cicada here has an accordion or concertina that lies on the ground as the ermine-clad ant preaches at him (8-9). The wolf towers over and surrounds the lamb wonderfully (15)! This milkmaid is different. She looks straight at us in the first picture (17); in the second, a small cloud rains directly on her as she carries in her hand a useless fragment of her jug (19). The tortoise in TH carries a map of the race's course on his back (31). He apparently gets the idea that Depart is crucial for Arrive. TMCM is a particular favorite (34-35). Only a paw appears at the left, but the mice are running fast and afraid to the right. The city mouse is well in the lead, and the country mouse is only starting to react to the threat. In Le Coche et la Mouche, the fly dominates the picture, zooming over the coach like a jet plane. The schoolmaster preaching to the drowning child is perfect (45). Do not miss the close-up of the bear next to the head of the traveller playing dead (51). There is a fine picture of the anxious Grégoire digging a hole for his bag of money (59). The retired rat is plump and self-satisfied in his posh surroundings (67). Both the killer and the dead hen are well portrayed in GGE (69). The artist presents a tour de force for Le chameau et les bâtons flottants (80-81). This boat is also a dragon and a tin can! Well done!en_US
