The graphics of this book are nearly identical with those in the French Fables de La Fontaine (1971/80) and the Italian Le favole di La Fontaine (1971/82). In fact, the book maintains the arrangement of the French original, grouped by animals. Thus the first five fables are about donkeys, and the next five about cats. Numerous realistic, playful, better-than-average colored presentations of animals in courtly human garb. How nice to have run into the same book in three different languages! ©1971 by Editions des Deux Coqs d'Or.
