This large-format book presents seven fables with large, even splashy illustrations. I have never seen a cat the color of the cat pictured for BC! FG has a positive moral: There is comfort in pretending that what we can't get isn't worth having. SW has a bet to see whoever can make that man take off his coat. My favorite among the illustrations is the two-page spread for the last fable, The Boastful Gnat. It is a forceful, frontal view of the gnat on the lion's nose. The book's spine is beginning to split.
