dc.description.abstractThe forty-two stories in this lovely book move quickly from the simpler fable-like stories into longer, more complex, magical fairy tales. They also move to more and more specific names. Seven of the first eight qualify for consideration as fables, including The Peasant, the Bear, and the Fox; The Crane and the Heron (new to me and delightful); The Sheep, the Fox and the Wolf; Silly Old Grey Wolf; Mistress Fox the Confessor; Mistress Fox the Midwife; A Hen for a Shoe, a Goose for a Hen; and The Bubble, the Straw and the Bast Shoe. The black-background Russian art is lovely; a good sample shows the fox and wolf together in two different scenes on 20.en_US
