dc.description.abstractThis is a third high-class volume of comics representing twelve fables of La Fontaine, like the first two by Delcourt in 2002 and 2004, respectively. The artist for each fable can again be found in the T of C at the back and also on the back cover; in fact there are again twelve different artists, and their styles of presentation are quite different. The endpapers have changed. We now have, alas, plain green paper. The very first picture, for Les Animaux malades de la peste, is a spine-tingler done in black, blue, and purple (3). In fact, this fable turns out to be a delight, as when the artist pictures the lamb hearing the fox say that the murderous lion did sheep an honor by eating them (5)! By the end of that page, everyone has a halo over his head, including the dangling spider. The story ends dramatically on 7 with the fly-infested skeleton of the poor ass who confessed to eating some of the monks' grass as he passed along their meadow. I have never seen a stag with a rack like that on 8! Another favorite of mine is FM on 18-21, which ends with the hawk's nestlings picking over the bones of both the frog and the mouse. I enjoy the variety and wit that go into these three comics. I want to see about using them in some interactive mode with people.en_US
