dc.description.abstractOne of a cycle of books produced by Retz as impertinentes. Each fable's retelling plays some game, like GA's substitution and multiple placement of pitit all over the fable, as in this line 'I was singing,' replied the little beast who had not raised the littlest finger to raise the littlest provision for winter (9). This telling of FC avoids the letter e. TMCM includes a generous admixture of franglais (15). OR turns into a calligram, in which print forms a picture of what is being reported. Do not miss the good calligram of The Fox and the Wolf on 105. The Lion and the Mosquito is filled with interjections (21). The opening T of C lists the shift or game at work in each fable between its title and page number. This is good fun. It is great to see a published book having fun with good literature this way. The illustrations are lively cartoons, often substituting human characters for the fables' animals. A masterpiece is BF (44), where feathers protrude from all sorts of human orifices! I find haunting the late representation of FC in which La Fontaine is the crow and the king is the fox (122). Hmmm…. It is a shame that the cartoons are black-and-white and not colored!en_US
