dc.description.abstractHere is a much-used treasure-house of cartoon strips formerly in a library. Its binding is taped and its corners well bumped. In the interior, some pages are starting to separate from the binding. A T of C at the beginning indicates thirty-seven fables on 11-89, followed by two pages containing a few glossary items for each fable. The cartoons are delightful and perceptive. Because the gorged, choking wolf cannot cry out, he hoists an SOS sign and gestures to a passing stork (12). Anouk exercises the cartoonist's craft well. Gestures are portrayed dramatically. The disgorging of the wolf's bone from his throat is like an explosion (13); the ant's bite of the dove-hunter's foot is dramatic (25); the hermit rat is ridiculously rotund, while the other rats are skin and bones (34-35); the crow about to seize a ram flies like a dive-bomber (60). This dramatic and even violent approach to the stories may reach its apex in Les deux coqs (68-69). The pot of clay ends up sporting several bandages (79). The phrases of the cartoon's texts are taken often verbatim from La Fontaine.en_US
