dc.description.abstractThis book reproduces almost exactly a book I have in English: Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986), a Gallery book from W.H. Smith Publishers. This edition skips the foreword, but its T of C, which borrows the foreword's illustration and spreads over two pages, then indicates exactly the same stories and page numbers as are in the English T of C and edition. As I write there, this is one of the best renditions I have seen lately. The pictures are excellent, well produced, and witty. That illustration with the foreword or T of C, respectively, reappears meaningfully later with WC; it pictures a lion, hedgehog, and crow who are smart enough to have nothing to do with the wolf's pained throat (38). Earlier the wolf here is a hunter with a rifle pointing an ominous finger at the victim lamb (24-25). There is a great facial expression on the cat hanging from a peg while the mice discuss nearby (33). The approach of the envious donkey to sitting on his master's lap is a fine scene of commotion (56). The few words that I can recognize presumably come from borrowings for things that do not exist in Finland, like tyrants (tyranni on 25), apes (apina on 28), dolphins (delfiini on 28), and lions (leijona on 30). This is my first book in Finnish.en_US
