dc.description.abstractThis attractive 120-page book with shiny bright covers presents twenty-three bilingual Aesopic fables. FS is the first offering and gives a good example of the style. The fables are significantly expanded here. Thus the fox envies the stork's flight and so decides to play the trick. Three different courses are offered in shallow bowls, and--on the following day--the stork offers several deep-necked jars of food. In FC, a wolf first tries negative persuasion on the crow; the story thus sets up the clever approach of the fox. In the story of the miser (23), the stone itself suggests to the miser Bury me there in the gold's stead. I think that this edition thus represents the first time that I have seen a stone speak in this story. The title-story, The Cock and the Fox (57), is UP. The woodcutter initiates the invitation to the fox to stay in his shed and, only after hearing about a reward, makes furtive gestures to indicate the fox's presence (69). There are playful black-and-white illustrations throughout. Enjoy the road-kill wasp on 42 and, on 67, the jackdaw who thinks that he is an eagle. Sometimes animal forms and landscapes coalesce, as on 83. As decoration Mydlo throws in a pencil in many shapes. After the fables there is a two-page statement only in Slovak by the author, Ondrej Sliacky. That is followed, respectively, by a pronunciation guide for the English texts, by an English-to-Slovak dictionary, by biographies of the book's collaborators, and by a T of C.en_US
