dc.description.abstractHere is the French version of the 1991 Godine publication, Animal Fables from Aesop. The transposition into a French book is well done, though the page format seems to have shrunk. Let me quote from my comments on the original. This book is a serious entry into the classic Aesopic tradition. Exceptional color illustrations in the anthropomorphic tradition of Grandville. The only flaw I see in the presentation of the nine fables is some softening of realism in both story and picture. Several pictures try to be cute while telling, and telling loses in the bargain; the fox and lamb are only carried away, not killed, when they are caught. WL is situated on a road, not by a river. In an excellent last illustration, the humans who make up the cast take off their animal masks. Other excellent pictures show the crow losing his cheese; the crow frustrated over the loss; the fox winking over his soup; the wolf pointing a finger down at the lamb; the crow at the peacock ball; the fox's fall; and the fox buying grapes from a mouse. A real treat.en_US
