dc.description.abstractHere is the French version of a book I had already found in German and English. Let me include some of my comments from there. This colorful large-format book contains forty-six fables. The art is big, colorful, and dramatic. BF (#1) has the smallest bird I have ever seen trying to wear these peacock feathers! OF (#3) starts with a great image of a horned frog; there is no other frog around. For TMCM (#5) the setting seems to be more the country meal than the city meal, and there is no country meal in La Fontaine! There is a great chagrined lion (#12), overcome by the gnat. Sometimes the images of two fables are merged on one two-page spread, e.g. 14-15 (GA and FC) and 20-21 (WC and FG). In 2P (#25) the iron pot has a good moustache. The illustration for The Mountain that Gave Birth (#27) is strange: a man in the foreground raises a golden egg in his hand, while the mountain in the background looks sad. In The Torrent and the River (#40), a hat floating on the calm surface tells the whole story. Great job for an inexpensive book! T of C at the front, listing stories in order without page numbers.en_US
