dc.description.abstractI could not remember this booklet, and I happened to be right: I did not have it previously. I do have the parallel 1967 Grolier edition The Fox and the Stork And Other La Fontaine Fables. Note that this book uses small letters, on the title-page, for the words and and other, capitalized by the earlier book. There the title-page had Retold by Roberta Sewal, where here we find simply By Roberta Sewal. The Dear Reader page apparently skips a line, so that Sewal seems to speak of three fables, one of which unites a crow and a grasshopper and an ant. In fact, there are four fables here: GA, The Fox and the Goat, The Crow and the Eagle, and 2P. The prose texts take liberties with La Fontaine. Thus GA has nothing about the ant's lending habits or her command that the grasshopper dance. It adds a request by the grasshopper to come in and get warm. There is no praise by the goat of the fox's brains. Each page-pair matches one of Boutet de Monvel's lovely little colored illustrations with about one sentence of text.en_US
