dc.description.abstractI have known and enjoyed Nickless' work before in The Book of Fables (1962/63), and I find it highly enjoyable here. It may be that some or all of the art from there repeats here. This is a 92-page book that averages approximately one fable per page. There are sixteen colored full-page illustrations printed on the regular paper stock with print on the verso. Among the best are The Hares and the Frogs (53), MSA (33), and The Lion in Love (80) . There are also frequent line-drawings that take up less of the page. Among the best of these are TMCM (57), MM (71), The Thief and His Mother (85), and GGE (92). A sampling of the versions suggests that they are well crafted. The cover (which repeats as the first illustration) is notable for the backwards home-made s in the Winning Post sign for TH.en_US
