dc.description.abstractA truly crazy book! Verse throughout, including plenty of romantic poetry set to well known airs. Lots of idiomatic Scots dialect, and plenteous references to curling. The illustrations are fetching but too tiny. The title page is a wonder of palindromic art on its own. The six fables elaborate their stories over several pages, with at least one illustration each. They include The Bear and the Bees (12), The Wolf and the Child (40), FG (64, with a very good illustration), The Sheep and the Crow (106, differently told: there is no reference to an eagle or lamb), TH (122, which features several young hares), and FC (162, in which the fox offers lozenges and the crow speaks at first without losing the cheese). This last fable ends with a nice pun: For to that cheese he had no right/Unless it had been left. The book's spine is unfortunately weak.en_US
