This book is a delightful surprise. It takes some seventeen traditional Aesop's fables, told in the book's last pages. For each it spins out a new tale about fashion, shopping, and clothes. The watercolor (?) illustrations are splashy, colorful, and suggestive. For a taste, try A Girl with Curls (30) and Bella and the Mouse (38) for both text and illustration. The contemporary shopping stories translate the fables well. This book is worth showing off in a lecture on fables.
