dc.description.abstractHere are fifty short fables, one to a page in a small (4½' x 6¼') book. These fables are, I would say, aimed at provoking reflection. Der Hund und die Tiere (6) concludes with the dog saying I master man, indeed by serving him. The majority of those I have read are dialogic, with one character or group making a self-assertive statement and a wiser animal retorting. Thus the flying crows confront a silent stork, proud of the noise they make as they advance (13). To what purpose? the stork asks. We broadcast our offensiveness to the whole world. The stork answers finally I buried my song long ago and learned how to be silent. Sparrows tell a stork on the prairie that they feel enobled by his presence in their midst. When I am down here with you, I also become aware of my dignity, the stork answers (14). This fable may be the source of the title illustration by Heinrich Kümpel, which looks as though it were done with pencil by hand in this very book.en_US
